Bogert Low Loss Cable Kit
Piper Service Bulletin No. 836, considered "mandatory" by Piper Aircraft Corporation, calls for the inspection and replacement of aluminum battery-to-starter cables at the next scheduled inspection, but not to exceed 50 hours of operation. The aluminum cables may generate a lot of heat and have caused melted and blackened cables. This excessive heat buildup could also result in an electrical fire. No replacement parts are available from Piper, and Piper has also specified replacement materials that are not readily available and are very expensive. The Piper-specified cables and sizes actually reduce the maximum allowable cranking amperage to the starter. The Bogert ''low-loss" cable assembly kits replace the cables affected by SB 836.
They are ready to install and are FAA-PMA approved with an STC. The "low-loss" cables have at least 55% greater capacity than those specified in SB 836 and 25% greater capacity than O.E.M. parts. With the Bogert "low-loss" cables your starter will turn at its rated speed with greatly reduced current drain from your battery. Please provide year, make, S/N and "N" number of aircraft when ordering. Custom length cables available for home-built aircraft. Request quotation.
