builders have reported two minor problems with the choke control
system used on the 582. The
first problem is that the choke cables are long enough that the
knurled adjustment at the carburetors is all the way out.
The second problem is that the cable bead at the actuator end
can pull through the plastic arm, effectively disabling
the carb's choke.
modification addresses both problems.
Remove the black plastic choke actuator from the instrument
panel, and disassemble the actuator by removing the roll pin and
pulling off the back cover to access the cable bead and motion arm.
Remove the cables, and drill a 1/16" hole through the most
aft wall of the bead retaining box, and then carefully slot down to
the hole. Reassemble the
control with the bead aft of the aft wall, and leave out the spring.
The drawing included with this letter will help you identify
the parts. This
modification makes the bead more secure in the action arm, and
effectively shortens the cables.
Readjust the chokes at the carburetors after re-installing the
choke control on the aircraft.
