    Mine is similar, except with a stock 470K.
    I had to repair a crack in the engine mount a couple years ago,
    the Lord rubbers were sagging in the extreme so I replaced them.
    I'm expecting to need to...

    Poked around on the Flight Radar app, apparently it only tracks 1090 ES ADS-B,
    NOT the 978 UAT variety that i installed.
    Which is good, i guess-- a little less concern re privacy issues.

    Curious if youre running the orginal 470A/J mount (with the vertical rubber isolators)?

    Kinda cool in that it's in real time--
    you can see an airplane off in the distance & check what it is.
    You can also look up flights after the fact by tail...

    The Port Townsend Aero Museum does great work.
    They're pretty busy but they might be able to slot you in.
    Better / quicker if you just bring the wing in.

    and was due to my old equipment (specifically the encoder) not being warmed up enough.

    I always figured with the time & expense required to get an A&P myself,
    it was probably cheaper & certainly easier to just work with one of my A&P or IA buddies

    FWIW I just renewed the insurance on my C180,
    FWIW it's up about 7% from last year.
    A bit more than inflation but not an earth shaking increase.

    Yeah, but I seem to see a lot of comments about iffy grounds causing gremlins in avionics.
    Adding a dedicated ground wire to a rudder-mounted Tailbeacon seems like it might be a good idea.
