mocfly Posted October 27, 2012 Report Share Posted October 27, 2012 Fellow CT Fliers, After my return flight from the shop which did our annual with no issues and some problems solved, the next flight had the issue outlined below: "After rotation, we climbed at 5,100 RPM, 80kts IAS on runway heading to 1,100 ft. We then turned to heading 150, continuing the climb to 1,400 ft. After turning on course, the generator light illuminated steadily, and I noticed the volts were in the yellow arc proceeding to red line, then past red line. At the same time, the oil temp indication was climbing into the upper yellow arc, to red line. At this point I declared a precautionary return to the airfield, continued climb to 1,700 TPA, turned for left downwind for R20, leveled off, and reduced power to 3,200 RPM. The generator light began a random pattern of illuminating on/off while voltage indication slowly returned to the yellow arc. Oil temp indications were in the mid yellow arc, steadily dropping to the green. We landed uneventfully. No landing lights were used. Only the avionics, intercom, and beacon were turned on. No circuit breakers were tripped. I have not taken the cowl off yet to investigate yet. My first reaction is that this is a ground/connection issue. My question is why would only the Oil Temp indicator go up and not the CHT, and Pressure? Thanks, Chris Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
