2010 Annual Inspection (v)

The "Inspection" part of N631S's "Annual Maintenance Availability" is finished. I'm pleased by the small number of issues and discrepancies found after a year when the airplane flew far more than it's been used to in recent years.

The new Lord engine mounts have arrived from Cessna. The photo at left shows the old front right mount as installed. While you can't really see them in the photo, the rubber elements have narrow but fairly deep circumferential cracks.

Mike the IA wants to get the new mounts installed today, and then to get started closing out areas where no further work will be needed. I'm still optimistic that N631S will be ready for return to service by close-of-business tomorrow.
