Q: Hi Steve,
I fly a 1965 C-182. I was ready to upgrade from my 172 when I came across this 182. I bought it a couple of years ago (for a good price, I might add) and have been slowing getting it into tip-top condition.
My mechanic has encouraged me to take on some of the tasks, and I have replaced the fuel filler caps with the Monarch Premium (raised) Caps from Hartwig. I’ve also taken out the old interior and installed a new interior from Airtex, and I’ve learned to change the oil and filter.
One of the guys here at the airport said I need to look real hard at “everything down by the rudder pedals.” I think he knows what he’s talking about. Can you tell me what to look for?
