    Prop Damage help

    I’ve seen damage in this area when a screw fell out of the cowl, but the pin hole at the bottom is interesting. Clarence
  2. I subscribe to both TCM and Lycoming manuals and S/B’s through ATP. Many are also on the respective websites. Some form of method to add links would be helpful. Clarence

    I'm not sure who to believe

    Over the years I’ve adjusted many TCM fuel systems. The thread on the aneroid adjustment screw is very fine and doesn’t take a lot of torque to secure it. I’ve never seen a pump as you’re describing it, all that I have seen have a female thread in the aneroid housing and and external check nut on the adjustment screw. If you’re able to get it a picture would be helpful. Clarence

    Lycoming Cam Issue Poll

    The Lycoming 76 series engines installed in the C172N and Piper Seminole have removable valve lifters like a TCM engine. When I worked on flight school plane we pulled the lifters every 200 hours and replaced any showing signs of distress, they all went well beyond normal TBO. Clarence

    Uh oh

    David, In your own words this is a Mooney forum? Do we really need the name calling? I’ve disagreed with people on this forum, I don’t block or ignore them because some of their posts contain good points which I learn from. Clarence
  7. Can it be added to the downloads section? Clarence

    It might be overhaul time...

    The only TCM engine that you can’t pull the lifters that I know of are A65 thru O-300. 360,470,520 &550 are all easily done. It’s as easy as pulling a cylinder on a Lycoming, and just as necessary. Clarence
  9. This one? https://www.lycoming.com/sites/default/files/Piston Pin Plug Wear Inspection.pdf Clarence

    Uh oh

    I’ve always wondered, in the event of a gear up landing that you knew was going to happen would you pick grass or a runway? Clarence

    This picture of your pump might help. Clarence

    Backfire on short final

    Possibly an intake leak from the recent engine work? Clarence
  13. Depending on you engine model the induction system is quite different. In the G series engine the induction system is a long log with the priming nozzles in the front of parts 4&6, in the S series engine induction tubes are equal length. Clarence

    P-Lead Length

    It’s only “unloaded” if you did a live magneto check as part of your shut down checks. Clarence

    Braking After Landing

    Correct, then it would require bleeding. Clarence
