Q: Hi Steve,

My mechanic told me that my carburetor duct needs replacing. He also said that he needs to do a lot of work on the air inlet of the cowling.

Is it common for so much work to be needed on these parts of a 1967 Cessna 182J? I haven’t noticed any performance problems, so this is quite a surprise.
