    He needs PA22 info (he did say Tri-Pacer). Andy’s website might have an original sheet to look at if he doesn’t have one in his records. Even so, David is correct, the datum is the WLE so the arm for any panel work would be close to zero (or 60” if his current paperwork shows a datum at the nose).

    Instruments are around -2 and radios, depending on how long, usually -5 to -7 for panel mount. At least thatís what I have on the PA-16.

    Here is an example W&B from a PA-22 that I fly. They put alll the avionics at station 0. Weighing was based on 60" forward of LE, then corrected.example W&B_Page_1.jpgexample W&B_Page_2.jpg

    Thank you all so much. I have corrected the calculation. In the end it was a mix of the datum at the spinner and the new datum at the wing leading edge. Since the weights of the avionics are minimal, the error was minimal too. Once again, thank you very much. Happy landings.
