    bottom of door scrapes wing but fit looks good?

    n Tue Sep 20 9:34 , 'Kerry Muller' <kmuller@csc.com> sent:

    Does anyone else's door contact the wing when swung open?

    Hi Kerry -

    My Pilot-side door does too - Mike R thinks the piano hinge might have pulled
    loose from the rivets (like elongated holes) and I can see more hinge on that
    side than the other - getting ready to work on it. Will see what's up!

    I'm hoping this can be fixed w/o changing the hinge - Mike and Bob have written
    LOTS about the different kinds of Piano Hinge, and about how the new stuff from
    Raytheon is 'junque.'

    To be more correct, the "new" parts are from an obsolete style of hinge
    that is hard to source. (We have provided supplier info in the past, check
    the archives.)

    If I were to be confronted with this problem today, I'd replace the hinge
    (both halves) with MS20001P hinge. Sure its a bit more work to do both
    halves, but you'd have current production hinge rather than antique 60's
    stuff to work with.

    Depending on your IA and FSDO, some may think a field approval is
    needed. Ought to be a cake walk, as the FAA understands obsolete hardware
    replaced with a new call-out.

    Its a couple hours of labor to remove the door and drill out the rivets,
    install new hinge and rivet it all back in. Not anything that should cost
    a great deal of money.

    As for if this is Kerry's real problem, got any ripples in the top wing
    skin inboard of the gear? I've seen BENT WING SPARS cause a loss of
    clearance between the door and the skin over the fuel tank...

    Sure hope THAT isn't your problem.
