STEVE ELLS replied to the topic 'Seneca III - 220T Suggested Power Setings' in the forum. 3 days ago

Hi and welcome;
The first thing to know about the Seneca III is that it has fixed turbocharger wastegates. Therefore, when increasing power always be careful since there is no automatic wastegate controller. Power up slowly and keep an eye on the MAP guages. Unless you're careful you can over boost the engine very easily.
That's a technical hint for you.
Other readers may have more flying speed tips, etc.

Hi Steve,
Sorry, I tried to do an upload but the file was too big so I had to create a Dropbox. Enjoy!

Hello. First post. I have time in other twins, will be flying Seneca III 220T tomorrow for some general handling, local flight and circuits and then hopefully regularly after that.

I have the POH. When flying a new airplane I like to seek advice from experience flyers of that on the suggested speed and power settings for that. I have studied the POH and other internet searches for this but dont seem to find anything. Airfield elevation is 400ft.

just looking for ball park advice, below are probably incorrect, just examples to show what information I am looking for.

take off roll e.g 34"/max rpm
climb out: eg. 25"/2500
120 knots general for general handling (stalls, simulated engine failure etc): eg 22"/2200 rpm
descrent to circuit 17"/2400
pattern 18/2400
finals 15/2500

thank you very much!

STEVE ELLS replied to the topic 'Cherokee 6/300 engine issue' in the forum. 1 week ago

OK,please define some terms for me.
When you say the cylinder is flat, what does that mean?
# 5 doesn't show on EGT; that could be a probe or loose wire
I am not familiar with the term Cam test. Can you explain further?
What do you think? Does anything about the engine cause you worry?
Is it using a lot of oil?
Is it hard to start?
Do you have an oil filter? If so, has the shop removed it and cut it open? If they did, was there metal in the filter media?
Is it using more fuel than the book says it should at each power setting?
I'm trying to get enough data to determine if the engine is in trouble.
It's entirely possible that it is; inactivity does tend to cause problems in lifters and camshafts in Lycoming engines.
Please get back to me with a few answers and I'll do my best to help you further.

I am not sure you need a STC. Dual oil coolers are standard on Cherokee 6s starting in 1974. I suggest you point this out to your mechanic to see if he will install the second oil cooler based on the information in the parts book. I got this information from the Cherokee 6-260, 6-300 and 6R-300 parts manual. The manual part number is 753-669 dated Feb 20, 2014. There could be a PIper service kit addressing this but I don't have access to all the Piper service information right now.
Check with your mechanic and get back to me.

Lachlan Oliver created a new topic ' Cherokee 6/300 engine issue' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

Hello "everyone"
I am in a bit of a situation and wanted to get some advice. I bought a 1974 Piper Cherokee 6/300 in Oklahoma from a farmer. He was the second owner and the last overhaul on the engine was 20 years ago. He said he flew it once a month to keep the engine going, but not at all the last 2-3 years. I had it flown by a ferry pilot to Tulsa for a pre-buy inspection and annual. Long story short, the pre-buy didn't turn up anything and the annual took 3 months (at a FAA repair station) I also had the avionics all updated to a 750, but then had it flown out here to San Diego were I live. Now number 6 cylinder is flat, number 5 cylinder doesn't show one the EGT monitor and 4 out of the remaining cylinders are only producing 64% power on the Cam test which I was told is considered a failure for Lycoming engines. My mechanic out here is saying that I need to overhaul all 6 cylinders "or" get a complete engine overhaul since the engine is 30 years old and sat.

Any thoughts on what questions I can ask or which path forward as far as engine overhaul versus just the cylinders?

Hi,
I'm not sure what the difference between a 765-106 and 765-106V is, but a company called Air Ward ( www.airward.com ) advertises the kits for $249. Since it's Sunday, I wasn't able to get an update on availability.
A search also turned up three companies that have a kit in stock. Here: www.controller.com/parts/aircraft/search?PartNum=765-106 .

I've worked with a guy named Keith in Phoenix AZ and he has not let me down yet. As a matter of fact, I'm going up there this Saturday to pick up a nose landing gear. He salvages old aircraft and you never know what he has up his sleeve. His number is 602-468-1500.
