I do not know of any beef-up mods made to the Sundowner or Sierra
specifically to increase the max gross weight. Some changes were made to
both during the production run (as on all planes), to address things like
wing bracket cracks, Stabilator bearings, the aerobatic capability (for the
Canadian Air Force), and the retract gear on the Sierra. I'll see whether I
can find out more, but it could take a while.

I fly the Super 111 and my gross is 2500# my question is did beech do
anything to the airframe to beef it up when they changed it to the Sierra?
Beech
raised the gross to 2750# to keep the usefull load around 1000# . So does
anyone know if structural changes were made? Alan
