Davis Aviation Services, Inc., owns STC upgrades for the Cessna 180 and Cessna 182 aircraft for a HEAVY DUTY engine mount replacement. If you are experiencing VIBRATION problems with your Cessna 180 or Cessna 182, the newly designed HEAVY DUTY engine mount may be the change your aircraft needs.
This is a stand-alone STC installation available for all Cessna 180 and Cessna 182 (not RG) model aircraft equipped with a carburated Teledyne Continental Motors engine (except the O-470 A and J series).
For example, the engine installation could even be the higher horsepower carburated 520 and 550 engines. The "HEAVY DUTY" replacement mounts are similar in design to the Cessna_185 floatplane mount, with thicker tubes, as well as additional connecting tubes. This installation will help eliminate vibration problems, as well as strengthen the firewall with the extra tubing. The replacement mount provides additional support for the engine with larger vibration isolators installed in the two aft positions.
NOTE: It is the discretion of the installer to determine if this STC upgrade would interfere with other modifications installed on the aircraft.
Kosola and Associates, a worldwide distributor for engine mount replacement and repairs, manufactures and sells these upgrades on behalf of Davis Aviation Services, Inc.. Their staff includes sales, technical support, as well as structured FAA appointed engineers. They are well known for their reputation in the aviation industry.
