  1. You're not going to find it. Talk to Alan Fox on here, he can help you out with a suitable work around. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. Ok, my HSI appears to have developed a case of the course select knob no longer functioning. Who would you recommend I send it to for repair? I’d love to do the dual G5 route, but my daughter is stating college in the fall and funds are already committed there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. Use blue painters tape, a long piece. Makes it hard to forget. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I guess I spend my days being lied to by sellers about the condition of their properties so that doesn’t bother me. It truly is amazing what people don’t know about the things they own. As far as the damage history, if the plane has been flying that long after the repairs, they were probably done right. I think the thing you need to keep in mind is that if you buy this plane, these issues will come up when you go to sell it. Just my 2 cents. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. We know what killed him, he flew into a mountain. That point is not up for discussion. What should be talked about is the decision making that went into this accident and where we can all learn. Waiting until the NTSB report would be nice, but those take months and the timeliness of the incident is lost and if there is a mechanical issue, then it will resurface. The FAA has spent a lot of time lately hammering on aviation decision making and trying to break the chain of these accidents. It seems like this individual did not have much "fear" or was an adrenaline junkie (not said in a bad way). Not being a CFI, is there guidance from the FAA on how to teach and reinforce the ADM with students like this?
  7. Because it’s their plane... They banged Susie McEasy on the wing... They “think” they’ll fly again... They died and their family has no idea what to do with it... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. And the GFC500 is not going to work if you have a short bodied Mooney. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Well, put in a new shower of sparks and presto, fired right up... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. 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
  13. Stay tuned, but it looks like the left mag might have a messed up terminal p lead terminal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. 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
  15. 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
