Started 2016 Annual

It's been a long time since I updated the blog, and I'm trying to fix that. I have around 157 hours on the plane now and it's time for its second condition inspection. I know it's Valentine's Day, but Jenn had a bunch of work to do today, so she joined me at the airport while I got started.

I started by draining the oil.



While the oil was draining, I inspected the engine and baffles. Surprisingly, one of the baffle attachment bolts on the #4 cylinder was missing. Fortunately, this didn't seem to cause any problems (likely because the plenum keeps everything from moving).



One odd thing I noticed was that a couple of pieces of the chrome plating on the #2 cylinder's intake valve pushrod cover flaked off. This is just cosmetic, but it's peculiar that it happened and only happened in just this one little spot.
