    I'm not sure you're going to find anyone. I think Narco was pretty protective of their manuals and did all repairs in house. Now that they've gone bankrupt, I don't know if you'll be able to find someone to take on that project. However, now that they've gone bankrupt, maybe those manuals will find their way onto the net.

    There was an ad on Barnstormers.com a month or 2 ago from a place that said they could work on them, but the ad isn't there anymore.

    Thanks for the reply, I guess I found a solution in the US with Bennett Avionics. They say they can fix it.
    I hope the best as I realy try to keep the original instrument panel in my Cherokee.
    By the way, if someone needs a original instalation manual of the 121/122 I have it.

    Cheers

    Natrona Avionics in Casper, Wyoming, can repair some Narcos.

    Klaus,

    Did you ever get your NARCO 121 repaired? Who repaired it and was the cost reasonable?

    Hi, I received my NARCO 121 today from Bevan Rabel. Its working again very well and cost me only 200,-$ repair. The KHz selector is broke and turns only in one direction, so I can still use it. Unfortunatly they didnīt had the sparepart anymore. They made a great job with this old thing, can recommend them.
