Kirk Condon created a new topic ' Cessna jump seats in a 182' in the forum. yesterday

Has anyone installed a set of Cessna 180/185 jumpseats in a 182? I have a C model and am looking to do this install. If someone has done it and has a 337 some other documentation please reply. This airframe is identical to a 180's except for the gearboxes and nose gear, but the manual for the 182 has no mention of these seats,

Hi All.
A friend has a set of Cessna 404 high Density Commuter seats that came in the Titan Currier, ready to go. If you do not have a 404 they would be a great addition to a rec-room, FBO lobby, theater room or? (With a little modification they would look great in your dining room if your better half is ok with it)
Hank is asking $12500.00 for the set.
Hank can be reached at:

Hi Kevin,
Thought of you today when I received this Press release. Some of the repairs they do might be helpful.
If your doing a restoration on this I hope your taking photos. This could be a great article. :)

Hi Ed,
I had to ask our expert Steve Ells, Ells Aviation. Steve has seen this issues a number of times and here is his explanation.
Thank you for the question, this might appear in one of our Q&A's. Your not alone on this issue.
"Kent;
This is a very common problem that shows up more and more as our Single Engine Cessnas age.
The culprit is the red master/alternator switch (S1994-1-1) what has eroded and now presents an electrically resistance to the path from the aircraft main power buss to the voltage regulator.

Where the regulator used to see the actual buss voltage through the alternator side of the switch, it now sees—due to the resistance in the switch—a lower voltage than is actually on the buss.

So, seeing a voltage that’s lower than the circuit equilibrium value, the regulator tells the alternator to increase its output. The higher output is seen on the buss since the alternator output is connected to the buss through the alternator circuit breaker.

When the higher output on the buss goes through the resistance in the alternator switch, the value is lowered but is still higher than the prior value and closer to the circuit equilibrium value so the regulator signals the alternator to back off and it does.

This teeter totter action creates a varying buss voltage.

Change the master switch. It shouldn’t take more than 20 minutes since all the wiring is connected to the switch through push on terminals. These switches are available from various vendors for less than $40.

Steve"

1976 182P IO-470

My amp gauge is waving between a low and high positive value at about a two per second frequency. At night I can see the instrument lights vary their brightness with this. I had a 210 that did that also. I believe this might be a common problem with a known fix. Can anyone help me?
