    Fuel Smell When Leaning?

    Thanks guys! I’m gonna check it those injectors again. It’s only while leaning. I would think all those other issues would cause the fuel smell and leave stains all the time?

    LEAN OF PEAK QUESTION

    Awesome, thanks for the help and ideas. I’ll put my jpg on 1” interval and lean really slow. I already use target get in the climb, so I usually arrive at level off around 100 ROP. Yeah, I hated to bump a thread that old, but I really didn’t want to start another LOP leaning thread!

    LEAN OF PEAK QUESTION

    Quick question about EGTs when running LOP... my GAMI spread is between 0.2 ~ 0.5 and I usually fly around 65% power and just barely LOP. Recently I've noticed #4 (which is always last to peak) also decreases slower (noticeably) than the other 3 EGTs once I'm LOP. This causes me to get ~50 LOP on 3 cylinders and maybe 5 LOP on #4 even with the small GAMI spread. It's easy to get too lean on 1, 2, or 3 and cause it to sputter a bit before I get #4 comfortably LOP. Any ideas on what I can do to remedy this?

    Fuel Smell When Leaning?

    sorry to bump this, but mine does exactly the same thing when I lean. I do have GAMIs and have make sure the "breather" holes are correctly positioned. No blue stains... did you ever nail down the problem or a solution?

    Children’s Headsets

    Anyone have experience with headsets for young kids? I’ve got 2 year old twins and we’re looking to get their first “real” headsets. Currently they use earplugs and/or passive protection, but it would be nice if we could talk to them and they could talk back. looks like D.C. has a youth model, appears really heavy. Pilot USA and Sigtronics both have youth models that are cheaper and lighter with same NR rating. Anyone tried them on a two year old? thanks, Rags

    Stall Horn During Climb Out

    I have similar chirping on mine. Usually in gusty winds and/or near gross, but stops above about 95mph. I do power on/off stalls often and it works fine in smooth air.

    G5 HSI released!

    Would love two G5s, one to replace my vacuum AI and one to replace my old king HSI but I can't believe they can't output heading signal to my stec 30 AP?! That's a show stopper for me.

    Weight and Balance stations for M20F?

    Thanks guys! Found it and used the data from the TCDS. I'm using WnB Pro as well. Seems good now that I've got the data from the TCDS. Rags

    Partnership in Spokane / Coeur dalene area

    I love my F model, but there are 3-4 months out of the year when it's only useable 2-3 days per month. I understand the limitations on small airplanes and icing and don't intend to cruise in it. Around here, I could fly all winter if I could climb/descend through a 2-3000' layer with light to moderate ice. Cruise would be in the clear. The weather isn't really low, but low enough to stop you from going anywhere vfr below the clouds - especially with the mountains around. Lots of SR22s around flying all winter safely...although I prefer Mooney.

    Weight and Balance stations for M20F?

    Sorry to bump this, but can someone tell me where the above w&b limits in cg came from? My graph for the 68F is in moment vs weight and dividing out the cg from the weight and moment doesn't seem to come up with the same limits. basically I'm just trying to build my cg envelope for a w&b app. thank, rags
  11. Hello, I'm looking to partner on a FIKI airplane in the KGEG, KSFF, KCOE area. PM me if you might know anyone with an existing partnership or who may want to start one in the future. Drew
  12. Anyone find a way to adjust/calibrate their gtx345 attitude ahrs data? Mine shows a slight bank/pitch in level flight, and unlike the stratus, you can't calibrate attitude in foreflight.

    Exhaust Valve(s) Blow

    I have been reading about normalize mode and will definitely try it next time. Yeah, I got into both of those Lycoming documents in the last few days as I belatedly educated myself on exhaust valves...

    Thoughts on this M20F

    Can I still get the 1100lb useful load and 150 kt upgrade?? I'd gladly trade my 1017lb useful and 140kts...
