Re: Oil filter change

Awesome folks.

I'll ask him then....I was under the impression that only an AME can safety wire the filter.

Matter solved!

Re: Oil filter change

Thanks folks All good points and comments. I asked because I know how to change the oil (quick drain) but I do need to find an AME and bring him to the lake where I parked the plane to replace and secure the oil filter and amazingly enough, it is not always that simple up here. I only fly the plane ...

Oil filter change

Hello again

We change the oil every 25 hours or so in the summer on our C 180 on floats but do we also need to replace the oil filter each time? Can it go for 50 hours instead?

Re: Ideal cht

Thanks folks

At cruise, do you guys close the cowl flap at all between 300 and 350? When do you start closing it under normal cruising condition? Is 350 what you try to keep the temp at with the o-470 continental?

Re: Digital Artificial Horizon

I certainly agree with you Supercharger... Had to replace the AH twice in the last 3 years...the vacuum pump once...and expect the DG to go soon....would be great to get rid of that entire loop! Is the Dynon D10A approved for the 180/185? I see in the links provided above that it is only certified f...
