  1. He was traveling a lot for business then that stopped and so did his reason for flying. Hangars in Jacksonville area are not bad. Really nice hangars for 350-400 per month. He is in a bulk hangar so I’m thinking he is paying 200-250: Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. Fuel stick. Keep it simple. Empty one tank then add 2 gallons at a time while making marks on a paint stick. Save that stick as the master to keep in the hangar and make a duplicate using the master for daily use. I use mine before every flight to compare with my fuel totalizar.

  3. Exactly, this is what I keep thinking over and over. But if I was going to make this my forever airplane probably not as much of a concern and by the time a sell it hopefully 20+ years from now the logs will not be as much of an issue given the 20 year track record. I would still take a hit, but less than now. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. Unfortunately no (I did look at the baggage area through the window and it was empty). Interestingly enough, the mechanic who apparently lost the logs (according to the owner) called the owner a few years later to see if he was interested in selling the airplane. Makes me wonder if the mechanic “found” the logs and thought he could get the airplane dirt cheap. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. Yes, my hangar neighbor spoke to the owner and the owner would not give him a price but instead asked him to make an offer. Some information was exchanged and that’s how we found out about the logbooks. A few years back someone approached him and the owner asked for $150K but obviously the aircraft is no longer worth anywhere near that. What the aircraft is worth now is the question. I was guessing somewhere in the 70k range but still a gamble at that price. I think the airframe is fine, the wing tanks (extended range) are a question mark but I think they are probably ok.

  7. It does not look like it from the pics but the windows are so dirty it was hard to read the Hobbs (doors are locked). I’ll try again this weekend. As far as corrosion is concerned it did have some surface corrosion on the right side flap upper skin and right side aileron upper skin, but it looked like it would clean up (no pitting or intergranular that I can see). Everywhere else I looked it appeared clean. The wheel wells and spar sections I could get to looked great with the paint in excellent shape. No fuel stains. I think the biggest gamble is that engine and prop. The missing logs a
  8. This Bravo has been sitting in the bulk hangar at my airport since before I moved there. For all accounts it’s been in the hangar for 15 years and was last flown in 2006 after all the cylinders were replaced. Supposedly the owners flew it for 10 hours or so after cylinder replacement then parked it and has not flown again. It’s a 1991 M20M. The oil looks clean, prop turns, fuel tanks are bone dry but the sealant looked good., interior is in very nice shape but the radios are 1990 vintage (a full King stack and very old Garmin GPS). The owner lost all the logbooks. The last person to main
  9. I have the ashtray 3 LED replacement from Spruce. Just an emergency 3red LEDs in case Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I guess i must be lucky i have not needed any adjustments to the pots since I bought the plane 8 years ago. I had to retape my aileron boots and have the servo control valve overhauled. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. I would suspect that it will not be long before someone writes an ox-pulse app for the new Apple Watch that is aviation specific with most if not all of the feature we need. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. Congrats!! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. Awesome Oscar. That’s one of the nicest C’s anywhere!! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. Kev, sorry I did not see your msg until now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Making sure I understand. I have Accutrak in mine, but also have a brand new Accuflite that I never installed. You are saying that with a couple of G5’s I could add the Accuflite and the G5 HSI would drive the Accuflite in both heading mode and GPSS steering? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
