    Default 337 for Vagabond PA17 for C85-12 Starter

    Anyone got a 337 for a Continental C85-12 with the starter installed in their PA-17 Vagabond airplane? Another set back until I can get a proven 337 ok from someone who has gone through this problem. This plane has already cost me a ton more than its worth but now I have to see it through.

    Someone else’s 337 will not necessarily get you approved data. You will need to get your own Field Approval. You can use a previously approved installation as supporting data, but not approved data. Lots of FSDOs are no longer doing field approvals and are pushing that off to DARs and DERs.

    Get the FAA CD for N4593H, I heard it got a starter
    installed after I sold it. It is a PA15 with a C85-12.

    On the Short Wing Piper Club maintenance section, there is a 337 for a C85 on a PA-17.

    If you sign in on the Short Wing Piper Club web site (you need to be a paid member) there will be a link to maintenance info. That link brings you to a page with a menu, and towards the bottom of the menu is a link for 337s

    I checked the FAA sight an the plane is not listed as a C-85 so I called the owner in Florida but got no return call this last week. I will keep trying, thank you for the info buddy.
