Say Hello and Show us what you Fly.
Hello Piper Owners, recently joined the Piper’s Owners Group in January. I have owned my 1979 Warrior II for 24 years. In the last few years I have done the ADSB upgrade followed by a GNS430W and GNS340. I decided this year to move forward with upgrades, removing the 170B and replacing it with a Garmin 255. Also pulled the trigger on an Aspen ProMax with the Bendix King AeroCruze 100 Auto Pilot. I am so looking forward to having the new Avionics in place soon. Unfortunately after purchasing all the new toys, I found an issue with the motor where the lifter and cam deteriorated causing metal in the filter. Headed down the path of overhauling at Don George’s engine, but they found a crankshaft out of specifications at the prop flange area, now she is getting a new Rebuilt Lycoming zero time engine. It will be a sweet airplane when I get her back in the air. Little lighter in the wallet, but not discouraged.
