JPI 790 installed

The 790 didn't fit above the throttle quadrant where my 760 was. Well, that's not entirely true... it fit but it looked hokey and overlapped the MP Gauge. Also it turns out you can't put the 790 in vertical mode, so hanging it lengthwise there wouldn't work either. So here is the spot:

Basically I just moved the altimeter up where the tach was and then shifted the tach and the MP gauge to the right, and then put the 790 next to the autopilot where the altimeter was and it fits there snugly. Actually I'm pretty happy with this because it puts the engine monitor right in my primary field of view just below the G500.   However I do now realize what we did resulted in putting the MP gauge on the left and the tach on the right, even though on my year Baron the RPM lever is on the left and the throttle on the right. Hmmm, worth a few hours labor to redo the hard attach lines for the MP gauge? tough one but I think it will bug me if I don't have them in matching order so I'm going to swap them.

Can't wait to fly with it.
