  1. Heim F34-14M - $25 including 1st-class mail shipping (US only). They currently sell for $34.50 each + shipping on Aircraft Spruce. I bought 4 new rod-ends/Heim-bearings a couple of months ago prior to annual to tighten up my gear doors on the nose and have one left over. The parts catalog specifies a Heim F34-14N which has been superseded, but the F34-14M unit can be substituted for 3 of the 4 required rod-ends. The remaining one must be machined thinner on the head in order to allow a greater angular rotation and this "special" part isn't available from general suppliers like Aircraft Spruce, etc. It's also twice the cost. So if anybody wants to save a few bucks on this unused part just let me know. Payment via PayPal or check.

  5. Install a G600, GTN750, GTX345, GMA345, and GNC255 in a 1967 VW Beetle and you've exceeded 60K! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. By "seal" I mean put a bag or plastic around it and seal any openings with tie-wraps, tape, safety wire, or whatever it takes to prevent ANY Corrosion-X from penetrating. Keep in mind that it's designed to penetrate everything and will even get between lap joints. I plan to actually remove my roll servo next time I fog the wings. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  8. Guys, if the new G5 and Autopilot options interest you then please contact Garmin as noted several places above. Here's the reply I got following my e-mailing them earlier this morning.
  9. Email them right now at and tell them you fly a Mooney M20 and want it added to the AML.
  10. At $7,000 for the new GFC 500 autopilot at least they're in the ballpark now with Tru-Track and Trio. I like the idea of a no-clutch servo if it's well done. With the new G5 capabilities I may be able to keep my Century II-B and shed my vacuum system after-all while saving up for the GFC 500. It may be a while before we're added to the AML anyway. I'm particularly happy they're not abandoning those of us flying behind a GNS530W. Garmin says... To express interest for the certification of additional aircraft types for either the GFC 500 or GFC 600 autopilot, please contact and provide specific aircraft make/model information. I just got through doing this.

    The probe in my '78 J failed a couple of years ago. There was no wandering at all; it simply quit. Your issue looks more like a poor connection somewhere but could be internal to the probe. As Doc mentioned AS sells them (for only $112). Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  13. It's the contact number given on the website and routes to a joint congressional switchboard. You "press 1" for the Senate or "press 2" for the House. If the number you posted goes directly to the House that's even better if you're specifically contacting your House Rep (which is what everybody should be doing at this time). Thanks for the additional number and comment.
  14. It's too late to send a letter, and likely too late for an e-mail to be considered. So please call the number above and tell your House Representative that you OPPOSE the bill HR2997. It's really very simple to do. And if you're not sure who your representative is click on and after entering your ZIP code you'll know who to call. If this bill gets through the House this week it will be much more difficult to stop in the House/Senate reconciliation process. Let's please not turn over our airspace to the airlines. Thanks!
