Hi Steve,

Thanks for the reply. I do have carbs, and I have carb heat cables just under the throttles. I also have the alt air switch....weird. I will not worry about it too much. The carb heat works fine. No mention of any addition in the log books.

Thanks again!

Chris

Hi Chris;
As I look at the Type Certificate Data Sheet for your serial number Aztec, it appears as though your engine is carbureted. Carbureted engines have carburetor heat, not alternate air which is for fuel injected engines. 
Has your airplane been modified by the installation of fuel injected engines?

If not, there should be two handles or levers that permit you to adjust the carburetor heat doors. I'm afraid I do not have a good idea of how these work. I've combed through the POH and the parts book looking for clues but do not have a good photo of the panel and can't find a call out for cables to activate the carburetor heat.
If I were there I would drop enough cowling to visually inspect the carburetor air box to check for a door actuation cable, then try to trace it back through the firewall to the pedestal. 

Sorry I couldn't help you more on this one.

Steve

Hi Chris,
The static ;ports on most Piper aircraft are located on the left and fight sides of the aft fuselage. 

I'm just finishing up a road trip; I'll be able to get some of the data I need to answer your second question when I get back home later today

Pls tell me the N number of your airplane--this permits me to determine the year and serial number.

Best,
Steve

Steve/All,  

I guess a couple I really have a couple questions:

1.  Where is the static port located, or where should it be located?

2.  Was Alternate Air installed on the Aztecs by Piper in the first few years?  If so, how/where does it work?  Mine is apparently activated by a toggle switch under the props between the cabin air and  defroster actuators.  If it isn't stock, I guess I have some investigating to do!

Thanks!!

Chris
