Q: I need a component for a particular aircraft, and I don’t know what the part number is?
A: For faster service, please consult the airframe manufacturer’s manual before you call. You can also find the part number on the aircraft component data tag. There may be several different component part numbers that are applicable to the same aircraft.
Q: What do you replace in a normal 500 hour inspection on an Aircraft Magneto?
A: Our 500 hour inspection goes above and beyond the normal manual specifications. We replace the points, capacitors, condenser, impulse spring, seal, slinger, felts, and any snap rings or cotter pins that may have been removed. Bearings are inspected (but are not replaced unless we need it). We disassemble the Magneto and remove the rotor, check the upper and lower bearings, inspect the distributor block/gear and we inspect the impulse coupling assembly. In addition, the gears/bearings are re-lubed and the magneto is reassembled, re-timed, and tested.
