Since the acft has come home I've had a few local, retired Commander people express interest in helping with the acft. With Legacy Aviation just 15 minutes away I have a good parts/knowledge source. I previously flew and maintained a 690B for 500hrs. So now we're elbow deep in catch-up mx. Rt prop gov was incorrect p/n. Bought an O/H, correct p/n unit. Also Morris Kernick and Adam stopped by the hgr this week for a good visit. I probably wouldn't have bought a 500 if I couldn't do the majority of the work in-house. Now looking for a good engine core. Planned on overhauling my 172 engine this winter and may also do an IO-540 at the same time.
