Which model 400 AP?

I don’t think my 69 T337D AP has any external inputs for pitch etc.
Except from the artificial horizon or small control head.

It may just be an “A” model?

AP has the small control head center stack...

PH502 24 volt heated pitot (used ebay)

I know I had mine replaced years ago, and it was under $300 new.

Interface to autopilot 400A - found it !

For the most part the autopilot is self-contained within its own harness.

For example, the 'Computer' gets continuous power from the aircraft through a circuit breaker. The control head switch...

Can you show a sketch of where it ws hidden?

Maybe put there 'off record' by someone years ago?

The fuel gauges are very strange

I THINK the gauges rely on power to create the magnetic field for the gauge itself.

Remove any right side fascia from passenger seat, and then avionics bay cover.

You can reseat the edge connector...

Unable to login to new site

Username and email not found
If I create a new account, I assume my history will be lost?

Should I wait for old history/account to be merged, or create new anyway?

Thanks?

Smile Images of complete new Avidyne stack coming alive

All Avidyne, one mfr, no finger pointing, "That's the other guy's problem"

What is required for installation??

I can see the benefit, but $4,500 installed buys a lot of AP time.

How complex to install?

Any installation manual available to get an idea of it?

Add a fuse to protect motors!

The cowl flap arrangement was poorly thought out. It exercises the wiring bundle and mechanism with each cycle.

Your gauges probably similar to mine.
