David Peter created a new topic ' PA-28 Engine Angle' in the forum. 2 days ago

I have a PA-28-180 and it appears the engine angle is a little more down than expected. It has new engine mounts. The distance from he spinner to the bottom of the cowl is about 3/8" closer than the top. I measured the angle of the engine with respect to the airframe horizontal line (2 screws underneath the pilot window) and it is 5 degrees. I can't seem to find out what the spec is. A local airframe company indicated I would probably have to contact Piper to get that spec, but not sure where to start that process. The firewall and engine cradle have all been checked out and not bends or damage have been noticed.The first question is what is the specification for the engine angle for this aircraft? The second would be, if it is significantly off, what can be done, or is it even a big deal?
Thanks for your help.

I highly recommend Ivanair at Ksac. He was a piper dealer and has maintained my P28R200 for 10 years. Sky wagon folks should know him. Good luck on your purchase, looks like a nice plane.

Well, I can report that the older style trunnions are a direct swap with the newer style that were on my ‘71, except we had to lower the squar switch by 7/8 to accommodate a lower bracket on the older style leg.

STEVE ELLS replied to the topic 'Piper trim wiring diasgram' in the forum. 7 days ago

I have a service manual and the drawing for the pitch trim system is as follows: aircraft buss; circuit breaker (5 amp; labeled pitch trim) 20 gauge wire (wire number C1A) goes to switch; then on to a box labeled "see elect trim inst" then out of the box to ground.
Not much information there.

Thanks for the advice, definitely will fly her as is for the moment (Assuming the purchase goes through) and see how it goes.

Makes sense about the wait for new stuff, coming from IT it's always better to have someone else find the bugs :-)

And yes love the G5 my training plane had one and it was absolutely fantastic.
