Re: Speed Sensor Assembly - help

Thank you for all your help!!! N566XL is running again after sitting for >2 years. I was able to run it and the only fault I got so far is a faulty CHT 2 probe (we replaced the speed sensor earlier) . We are working through the annual now but I hope to get it flying soon.

I couldn't find the software on the continental website. I got the cable from Amazon, and i am looking for a laptop with windows XP. Has anyone tried to run it on a VM?

Re: Speed Sensor Assembly - help

I bought a new speed sensor. I don't have the software yet but I confirmed that my airplane has the EDI recorder. Does continental still distribute the software?

Re: Speed Sensor Assembly - help

I was able to get my hands on a Speed Sensor (I still feel sorry for my piggy bank). The maintenance manual requires to do a timing test after installation of the speed sensor. Does anybody know where I could borrow/rent the FADEC Timing Tool which tests the speed sensor.
Thank you,
Raphael

Re: Speed Sensor Assembly - help

Does anybody have a spare speed sensor assembly. I bought an XL2 that needs one. Continental lists May as delivery time :roll: .

Thank you,
