I was ramp checked while on the ground at redbird. The FAA did not find proof that the ADF was installed. The proper 337 form was not in the plane. The airplane was rented. Also in question was the ammeter. The gentleman said it looked like it came from 'automatic parts'. I have rented and have logged more than 1500 hours in this aircraft and have never found anything defective, in maintenance or documents prior to this date.
