TOM BRAEUNIG created a new topic ' Lifting the nosewheel on 172' in the forum. 2 days ago

What's the best way to lift the nosewheel on a 172 to replace the tire or work on the strut?

I have a heavy concrete block with a ratcheting tiedown strap attached. My plan was to hook the strap to the tail tiedown and ratchet it down to lift the nose.
Is that an acceptable way to accomplish this? It seems better than placing sandbags on the stabilizer. My concern would be, if the tail tiedown and supporting tail structure can handle the stress.

Victor;
Ignore my last post.
You will find many articles on both the 172 and 182 by clicking on the "Cessna Models" heading at the top of the Cessna Flyer website. Then you'll bet a smorgasbord of articles by selecting the 172 or 182.

Hi Victor;
I've attached two word docs that will help you.
You can also access many 172 and 182 articles by clicking on the magazine tab and going to article archives.

Let me know if you need more information, or have questions.

Hello,

I recently sold my Cessna 150D and I'm shopping for the next flyer.

Seeing that the market is very tight and prices really high, I'm considering an older 172 or 182, depending on price and condition.

I would like to research idiosyncrasies of different versions of Cessnas 182.. What to pay special attention to. Obviously, I'm looking for guidance above and beyond of regular airframe and engine condition.

Are there any references for this kind of information?

BTW, I'm currently reading The Skylane Companion by Richard A. Coffey. Excellent book!

Thanks,
Victor

Thanks so much, Steve!

I will post the same question in the 182 forum as I'm also considering a Cessna 182 as my next step.

Hi Victor;
I apologize for taking so long to respond.

I have attached a pdf of a 2017 magazine. On page 42, there's an article I wrote about 172s.

I have also attached a copy of Cessna's Supplemental Inspection Document (SID) for some early 172s. This doc doesn't quite address your model but it's a good guide.

Take a look and get back to me if this doesn't answer your questions.

Conquest 2 op costs- totally depends on number of hours flown per year, where you hangar, threshold of liability for insurance - but if you use 200 hours as a baseline Expect to be very close to $850/ hour
