  1. David @Sabremech did exactly this, got it approved, and it costs a lot less than $10,000.
  2. I saw this picture in a different thread and had to do a double-take (I own 1395W)
  3. That's the stuff. A little bit goes a long way, you only need one strip at a time, and you can stretch that a bit. Even then you'll have extra squeezing out. There are slots/grooves on the forward and aft pieces that are meant to duct water. Those should be open and not filled with that tar stuff.

  5. I was told exactly the same as you so I’m in the same boat. I finally decided that IF I upgrade to a modern TSOed engine monitor, I’ll get the CiES. But until then, I’m going to send my existing sending units out for overhaul for 1/5 the cost.
  6. Why not just swap it for a different 10A breaker switch, like the beacon or pitot heat?
  7. A lot more than an M20J with an engine that's all corroded. As posted above, there were only 45 converted and there will never be any more, only less. Scott- thanks for taking the time to post this. Missiles are pretty rare and I would love to have this one. I can't justify it, but I'd love it.
  8. Mark, I agree 100% and am the same way. And when I say something dumb I feel bad about it later. I guess what I really don't understand is someone who knows he offends and doesn't give a damn.
  9. Kudos to you for planning such a great trip to share with your grandson, and for searching out information to make it safe! What about making a stop early in your trip at one of the flight schools that offer mountain training? A quick google search yielded a bunch, but not sure if they are on your route. I also found a PDF from the FAA: tips_on_mountain_flying.pdf
  10. Mike, you actually get clearances to enter the Class B in NY? I did a fair amount of flying up there in the late 90s/2000 and got tired of hearing "remain clear". And back then it really seemed like filing IFR was simply a request for vectors over the water. Perhaps times have changed.
  11. Thumbnail check, as recommended by Don Maxwell. 100% reliable method.
  12. You can add me to the list. I didn't used to mind an occasional, mild, and germane political comment. But Tommy ruined that. I simply can't fathom how someone as educated as Tommy could be so utterly clueless in understanding how to make friends and influence others' opinions.
  13. Yeah? Well my C is better than your Bravo! (I was just over on the other thread about politics and might've gotten a little worked up. I really do agree with your statement and always have.)
  14. Geez. And I thought the M20C vs. M20E conversation was contentious...
