    Legal parts

    Having read Bob Steward's article, "11 Ways to Get Legal Aircraft Parts" am I correct that if my plane came equiped with a DG and an AI, which it did, I can replace them with any TSOed DG and AI?

    I don't have to find a model that's specifically listed for my plane? I think that's the case for PMA parts?

    TSO isn't a license to kill. There are still restrictions. Tires are
    TSO'd, but you can only install the size and ply rating listed by Beech.

    There are some special issues with Gyros. Some panels have a TILT and the
    gyro has to be specially compensated for that tilt. Not a problem in the
    Mouse, but you can't use just ANY TSO Gyro, but the ones listed in the
    Spruce catalog, either Sigma-Tek or RC Allen, are quality parts that you
    can be happy with.

    As for installing them, yes you can do the work under supervision, but you
    can not do the return to service log entry.

    For those contemplating things to add to their Musketeer, you want a copy
    of the Beech Installed Equipment List for your make and model.

    Beech will sell you the data package for your plane printed off the
    microfilm for about $60. It will have the original W&B, the list of
    installed equipment, original airworthiness, and lots of other interesting
    paperwork.

    With the Installed Equipment List (not to be confused with the Part 121 and
    135 Minimum Equipment List), you can see what was optional, what is
    required, and what is "standard". Not all standard items are required, so
    you would know what can legally be removed or installed with just a log entry.

    If you had the installed equipment list, you could see that Gyros are
    optional (never SEEN one without them), and that you can add (or remove)
    them with only a log entry.
