        Hello Tow Pilots,

        I have uploaded a new file to the tow pilot section of the website. A must read for all tow pilots.
        This pdf file contains information on Cessna 182 carb icing. It also talks about wing tank fuel and some problems that may be encountered with full wing tanks.  Also, the cockpit seat adjustment check and the hazard of the seat sliding back at rotation.  You will find the file at this link.

                Question:  does N4711D have all of the other comcerns? ( the ones on the 56-86 buyer’s guide excerpt pages ).

                  Denny, not sure what document you are talking about. Can you post a link to it.

                    Sorry, I was not very clear on my Posting.  The document is the same one ( carb icing) that Don uploaded to the forum. Pages 3 thru 6 talk about the other 182 concerns ( fuel flow, seats, etc) and that Section is called the “1956-1986 Buyers Guide Excerpt”. That heading is top of page 3.

                    My post was just asking if those other concerns were also applicable to “11D”. ( Sorry for confusion )

                        Rubber Bladder Cells.
                        Our 182a does have the rubber bladder fuel tanks. So we need to
                        be careful when fueling that you don’t put the nozzle into the
                        tank to deep where you might nick the bottom of the bladder.  We
                        DO NOT have the flush style fuel caps, we have the umbrella-style
                        caps.  Probably would be a good idea to shake the wing prior to
                        checking the fuel sumps for water as described in the document.

                        Carb Ice.
                        Something we can keep an eye on when flying in cooler weather. Our
                        let down procedure should prevent carb ice.

                        Uneven Fuel Feeding.
                        Since we do not fill the tanks to full capacity, this should not
                        effect us.

                        Seat Tracks.
                        Applies to us and we should always rock the seat back and forth to
                        make sure that the seat pins are seated into the holes.
