Thread: Broken blue plastic propeller control knob

    Broken blue plastic propeller control knob

    I have a Sierra and a friend of mine with a Bonanza provided this info on knobs:

    As mentioned, the original plastic throttle/propeller/mixture buttons on my
    S-35 Bonanza had all cracked, just like yours. I had purchased "buttons"
    for replacement, made of anodized aluminum. The buttons are - gold for
    throttle, blue for propeller, and red for mixture. I replace only these
    buttons, as the knurled knobs were just fine. The knurled knobs are all
    still stock plastic as they came from the factory.
    Performance Aero has the complete set of knobs & buttons, which are being
    sold for $169.00. I bought just the buttons a couple of years ago, not the
    complete set of knobs & buttons. I am looking to find a distributor of just
    the "buttons".

    Until then, Performance Aero supplies many items to the Bonanza/Baron crowd.
    Their address is:

    Broken blue plastic propeller control knob

    The Performance Aero knobs are for the push-pull control cables. I don't think that they will work on the lever-style controls on control quadrants, for several reasons (including the need for the relief cut on the lever side). I can't say whether they will or won't work on the 19s/23s with push-pull cables. Since some of the mixture and throttle cables carry Bonanza and Debonair part number prefixes, perhaps they do work on some of them. The parts books do not show replaceable knobs on the cables, but that doesn't mean much. Hopefully I will hear from someone who knows for certain about the fit of the PA knob parts on the 19/23.

    I am close to having some low cost replacement quadrant-type knobs that are genuine Beech NOS parts. The down-side will be the need to paint the black prop and mixture knobs the correct colors (blue and red respectively), using high-quality plastic paint such as Molecubond or the Krylon clone product. The black throttle knob can be left as-is. I have already confirmed that the samples fit. Now I am working on supply and price. I will post these in BAC Classifieds when they are ready to go.

    Broken blue plastic propeller control knob

    I had my shop install the plastic knobs on my '72 Sierra MC-96 and
    they work great and look good. If anyone needs a picture just send
    me an email and I will send it along.
