  • T337E question about door latch assembly - Skymaster Forum
    from the bolt latch to slide along the groove without getting caught up on the dogleg curve of the pull bar channel While it s obvious where the spring connects on the pull bar we can t figure out where the other end is supposed to hook We ve studied the service manual and parts catalog but the diagrams all show an exploded view of the assembly with the spring attached to the pull bar without providing any clue as to where the other end is supposed to attach The guy helping me is an IA with lots of history with a Skymaster and he s stumped It s a 1970 Turbo 337E Where the heck does the spring attach on the other end Any help would be appreciated Last edited by Hankgator 02 16 16 at 10 15 AM Hankgator View Public Profile Find all posts by Hankgator Previous Thread Next Thread Thread Tools Show Printable Version Email this Page Display Modes Rate This Thread Linear Mode Switch to Hybrid Mode Switch to Threaded Mode Rate This Thread 5 Excellent 4 Good 3 Average 2 Bad 1 Terrible Posting Rules You may not post new threads You may not

  • 337G Upper Cabin Door Assist - Skymaster Forum
    on that but it is a lot higher than you would think Once the correct pressure is applied the strut operates as expected From the service manual NOTE When charging accumulator pressurize only until door is held open and a 2 to 3 pound force measured with a pull scale is required to start door toward closed The way I interpret the above note is with the friction nut loose pressurize the door strut to the point that it requires 2 3 pounds of force to start the downward motion of the door Once the door starts to move it should continue down with somewhat less pulling force or on its own Then adjust the nut as needed to hold the door in the full open position when the door is left open I would assume most of the doors out there have lost some of the pressure and I know from experience that addition of the correct pressure makes a head scratcher system go away Check the service manual to be sure of the correct PSI Herb R Harney 1968 337C I m in the front of the aircraft to prevent it from committing suicide Last edited by hharney 02 04 16 at 04 08 PM hharney View Public Profile Visit hharney s homepage Find all posts by hharney 3 02 12 16 07 41 AM chrisktx Registered User Join Date May 2015 Location Houston Posts 16 Here s what I found in the Service Manual No specific PSI mentioned Will up the pressure and see what happens When charging accumulator pressurize only until door is held open and a 2 to 3 pound force measured with a pull scale is required to start door toward closed chrisktx View Public Profile Find all posts by chrisktx 4 02 12

  • Centering your Navomatic autopilot - Skymaster Forum
    and level in the autopilot now matches straight and level with the controls MORE ON SERVOS The servos have two safeties 1 SLIP CLUTCH An internal slip clutch which is what you hear engage with a click A few seconds AFTER you turn on the autopilot Inside the half of each servo that comes out you will see the clutch It can be tightened and loosened using two allen wrenches stuck in holes you will see moving in opposite directions This tightens and loosens two rotating flat faces against a flat spring in between them The clutch should be tight enough for the autopilot to move the controls but loose enough that if you force the controls against the autopilot the clutch will slip rather than break the shear pin described below 2 SHEAR PIN A shear pin is located in the toothed gear that connects each servo to the actual controls via a small chain drive If when testing on the ground you hear the servo click and even rotate but it doesn t clamp at all then the shear pin is probably sheared To replace requires getting access to the half of the servo that normally stays connected to the control by its drive chain The half that controls the aileron can be difficult to remove entirely You just need it free enough to undo the pin No need to totally remove the servo Then with the gear itself free knock out the old shear pin and replace Cessna and autopilot shops may have the precise part They may not Aluminum tubing can also work in a pinch Wall thick enough to hold against the clutch rotating but thin enough to shear if need be When I have a chance back at the office I will review which adjustment pots on the control box overhead the third row adjust what and post Any questions feel free to call or email David Wartofsky bigcheese potomac airfield com 301 248 5720 David Wartofsky Potomac Airfield 10300 Glen Way Fort Washington MD 20744 n86121 View Public Profile Visit n86121 s homepage Find all posts by n86121 2 01 31 16 04 52 PM hharney Rough Surface Join Date Jul 2002 Location Michigan 08C Posts 1 640 Thanks David and nice posting I haven t digested the whole post yet but will entertain you with my dilemma My Nav O matic 400 will not hold ALT Based on the user manual it says to center both trim and pitch dials and then turn on the ALT HLD switch If I do that the airplane takes a dive and the only way I can level the plane is to use the pitch and trim dials I have the manual trim for level flight before I engage the A P So I don t use my ALT HLD Everything else works about 98 Any thoughts Herb R Harney 1968 337C I m in the front of the aircraft to prevent it from committing suicide
