Default Some Sitting

Bill,

The airplane did spend some time as the hangar queen while I was overseas in 2012 and again in 2014. Plus I missed a sample on an oil change in 2014. When the plane was sitting (maybe two months tops), it was in New Mexico. So I'm hoping corrosion is not the issue. But I have been in South Dakota the last two years where there is a touch of humidity in the summer.

I'm pretty sure the A1D has steel cylinders, so the most common culprit for that is the piston plug (hence the Lycoming SB). I may be pulling some jugs in the future.

-Matt
