Annual time

This week I took my plane in for annual and got the inspection report back this morning.  I wasn't expecting anything major since at this point my plane is like new, however there is always something.  It came back just rosy, although they have yet to complete the spar web inspection so I'm fingers crossed on that one.  Here is the report:

Compressions X/80

Left: 68 64 62 70 72 70
Right: 62 72 64 64 72 70

Mag Timing: Seems to have slipped a bit, adjust back down to 20deg

Change oil/filter
Service spark plugs
Small injector line bracket needs to be replaced

Some chaffing, install a few clamps on fuel lines

Fuel injector nozzles - clean fuel nozzles
Check and clean fuel metering valve screens

Left cowl flap actuator chaffing breathing tube need to secure it

Left main landing gear strut - service struts

That's basically it.  There is also a small hole in one of the airboxes.  The 35 year old aluminum just doesn't hold up forever however mine are still in decent shape.  Cygnet makes a replacement unit but I'm not sure about pricing, they do look gorgeous though!

For now I think I'll keep what I've got.
