My alternator on my 1972 182P does not always come on line during engine start. Sometimes turning the master switch off then on seems to get it online. One time the alternator came on line at start then dropped offline. Turning the master switch off then on got it back online. Any ideas what the culprit might be?

Thanks, Chris.

Dynamic Propeller sell fully rebuilt air boxes and usually they stock all parts. Glad to know you found the spring.

Thanks for the tip. I called Dynamic Propeller and they don't have the spring but I joined Savvy Aviator and they tracked down both the part number and the part. The part number isn't in the parts manuals but Savvy's network is incredible. Joining Savvy Aviator was the best money I have spent in aviation.

Hi Steve,
New wiring harness seems to be doing the trick. Thank you for helping me.

On my A185E (IO-520) the little spring that keeps the alternate induction air doors closed in normal operation is broken. I can't seem to find a replacement short of buying an entire alternate air induction assembly. My parts manual doesn't show a schematic of the alternate air induction system listing the parts so that I can find a part number for the spring. The shaft around which the doors pivot unbolts so replacing the spring is simple. Does anyone have any idea where I might obtain this spring or what its part number might be?

I did order one for installation in my Comanche because I thought it offered what I wanted as far as display, format and installation ease. But I sent it back due to my decision to not put more money into my airplane at that time. I did inspect it and thought it looked like a well built unit.

Hi, As I remember, but it's been a while, the new fairings are formed so that the attaching screws align with the original holes. I also believe it's necessary to drill new holes. One trick I use to locate holes when they are covered by a new fairing is to draw (with pencil and on masking tape if you prefer) two holes that start outside the area covered by the new fairing and are around 90 degrees to each other, although that measurement is not critical.
Each line should cross the center of the screw hole. These lines that intersect at the location of the (blind) screw hole will point at the exact location to drill the hole in the new fairing.
Steps; 1) draw two lines that cross at the existing screw hole; 2) position new fairing--tape it in place; 3) extend lines onto new fairing; drill a hole where the lines cross. I usually start out with a drill size that's smaller than the end size--this gives me a little "wiggle room" in case of a slight mis location of the crossed lines.

I don't know, Jose. Will ask my engineer (the aircraft is in Kenya), I am in the UK).
