What could I be doing wrong if the KA-57 I ordered is not working with my Cessna 300A autopilot?
The KA-57 must have Service Bulletin 3 to function correctly with the Cessna 300A autopilot. SB 3 configures the adapter so that it is compatible with this autopilot with its C395A computer amplifier. The tracer oscillator in the KA-57 must be disabled by removing a circuit jumper as in all KA-57 units used in interconnects with Cessna autopilots.
How does Southeast Aerospace calculate exchange prices and acceptable exchange cores?
Southeast Aerospace exchanges are based on the return of an undamaged, economically repairable core unit with identical part number as the unit shipped to the customer. An "economically repairable" core is defined as one where the cost to repair/overhaul (or Repair Cap) does not exceed 80% of the original SV/OH exchange price billed. Should the Repair Cap exceed 80%, the customer will be billed the additional amount. In the event this amount exceeds the Outright Price for the unit, the customer would only be billed the difference between the Outright Price and SV/OH Exchange Price with the core returned as-is to the customer.
Here is an example of such a transaction:
$1000 Exchange Price charged to customer
$1000 x .8 = $800 Maximum Allowable core repair charge or Repair Cap
$2000 Cost to repair core unit
- $800 Less Core repair cap
$1200 Additional billing amount.
2200.00 Total Cost of transaction
SEA offers exchange on new items as well. However, repair cap as indicated above is still based on SV/OH exchange price.
