  1. The Rustolem paint has held up well. Even where I painted the leather trim pieces and leather arm rests with it. Still need to paint the vents. was going to do them in the plane vs. trying to get to the nut to take them out.
  2. A couple hundred AMU and a $70 sewing machine will get you going. The lower leather side panels and cargo area have held up really well and don't need cleaning like carpet does. I have a walking foot machine now and the seats could be much better. But they work for now.
  3. go slow and listen to the sound of the bit cutting through the backside of the material. Mine are pretty well drained by the time they get to the lathe. Once to the backside you can stop and use a hand to take the can apart.
  4. I just chuck the oil filter on the lathe. as long as you catch it right, it won't sling oil all over the place. For the spark plug cleaner. https://www.harborfreight.com/pneumatic-spark-plug-cleaner-32860.html?cid=paid_google|||&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=&utm_content=&gclid=CjwKCAjwm7mEBhBsEiwA_of-TPlWMUArwUpbTx-eJdalbq5Cf7vwRMtNnfFgzucue5jZ_XsCMr32phoC6AwQAvD_BwE
  5. I had that issue so I ordered a new fuel line too. Probably should have ordered the other three. I have hand recut threads on a bike bottom bracket with a properly cut tool steel from a lathe blank. Of course it was the night before a race, so had to be done.
  6. Not sure if there has been an update. https://www.aopa.org/news-and-media/all-news/2019/february/pilot/ads-b-incognito#:~:text=ADS-B uses GPS satellites,ground stations and other aircraft.&text=An aircraft operator equipped with,anonymous mode during certain operations.
  7. There is also "forced" air induction from the side vents. Some have it on the Starboard vent. Look for clear plastic tubing coming off the top of the vent with the eyeball vent.
  8. pictures tell a thousand words and launch a 1000s ships.
  9. Ford used to have this break away stuff in their window motors. Texas heat would get to it. We found that if you pull the junk out and fill with fiberglass mat and resin. Would last till the car sold. Cut your little brothers arm off with the window though.
  10. Nice. bend the end over in a u so you don't slice a finger
  11. Mechanically I think your proposal is sound, there is just voice saying that you install the nut away from heim joint. And I guess I was assuming that the OP did not have the old style connector. My buddy found one on the plane he just did. yes replace it. But this could explain the cable coming unconnected. There is a Mooney SB.
  12. Not really. It's not that visible. You have to take the starter and alternator off to change out the fuel servo. I am going with the last person that had the throttle cable connected up probably forgot to put a cotter pin in or forgot to do it properly. There is a sequence of washers to prevent binding and such. While I will check mine, I am more sure that it was done properly because I was the one that did it. First two pics are before taking it off. Note on the throttle arm that you are putting the cotter pin in blindly. so you would have to get a mirror or cell phone camera to i
  13. I just can't see a properly done cotter pin coming out. Especially in that low stress area. When was the last time that area of the plane was worked on?
  14. If you are in the soup and that is the last working instrument, you would probably pay more.
