    And the GFC500 is not going to work if you have a short bodied Mooney. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Well, put in a new shower of sparks and presto, fired right up... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. My issue has nothing to do with starting procedure. After doing more trouble shooting today it looks like the sos is beyond its service life and a new one has been ordered. We’ll see if that’s it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Stay tuned, but it looks like the left mag might have a messed up terminal p lead terminal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. My M20E has been going through a pretty long annual this year and all of a sudden has become very hard to start to won’t start. I have an IO-360-A1A with the shower of sparks system. Mags, wiring harness, and plugs were all over hauled/replaced about 3 years ago and about 200 hours. The shower of sparks sounds like it did a when the engine would start easily with 3-5 blades. Here’s the kicker, when the engine starts, it runs smooth and develops 2700 rpm, and sounds great. Timing is at 25 BTDC.... The engine started fine going into the annual, we’ve replaced the fuel line from the throttle body to the gauge cluster, gas looks and smells right, no wires are missing that we can see... Any ideas or things to look for? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I think it's about a 6" arm. I'll measure it when I head out to the airport tonight. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Mooney Purchase Request

    I’ve see these all the time in real estate. One of the things people are taught is to “dumb down” the letter so it doesn’t feel like it’s coming from a big corporation or someone the does this all the time. I’m not sure the research is that good if they think they’ll get a J for that price and meet those criteria. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I have not had any issues with the compass and have flown like this about 60 hours. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I use a Ram mount off the center support post. The only think it blocks on mine is the ancient Brittain autopilot and one fuel gauge. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Is this corrosion or a gasket?

    I wonder if Mooney has pulled a wing with this type of corrosion and put it on a gig to see what the breaking point has been reduced to.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. The break was along the weld, all the way around. The time was really what I was worried about. There seemed to be no urgency to communicate with me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Last July during the annual it was determined that my muffler was beyond repair and I needed to buy a new one. We purchased a new one through Parts Exchange (aircraftexhaust.com) to the tune of about 1AMU, put it on the plane, and off we went. Fast forward one year and 70 hours and the muffler is cracked. So I reached out to Parts Exchange and told them what we had found and if they would honor the one year warranty. Well, because it was 15 days past the year mark they said they’d ask the manufacturer, Aerospace Welding, what they wanted to do after I took and sent lots of pictures to them. 6 days later they came back to me and they asked me to ship the muffler and all of the exhaust stacks to AW so they could examine it and then let me know what they would do. I told them I’d pass on that and just went and had the muffler repaired locally. I was not going to waste the time and money shipping it all to them and then be told they’d give me a small credit towards a new one. Just a cautionary tale... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
