    1967 M20E parting out

    Is it at all practical to ship a flap? Looking for a clean, straight right flap. Also need a good left hand main gear door.

    Mooney crap for sale....

    Alan, PM sent looking for a good, left hand, main landing gear door.
  3. Western at Troutdale does them quick, on the ramp. Always been satisfied with them

  5. Mine sat for 3 years without me flying. Busted the rust off pretty quick.

    Oily Lower Plugs O-360

    I feel reasonably confident saying that If it came from Lycoming in this century, it got new nickel cylinders. I'd bet it's valve guide leakage. My #4 does that same. Good compression, runs fine. These engines do not have valve seals so it doesn't take much to get a little oil down the stems while it's sitting.
  7. I'd think it should take more than 20K with a corrosion free airframe with 300 hour engine and prop. But who knows. If it was me and I could get it cheap, I'd buy it and dump the Tiger. For whatever reason, Mooney values seem to be low compared to comparable traveling airplanes. You'll go farther, faster, on the same fuel as the tiger.

    PC system hoses

    Good thing nobody asked you. Also, I'm not sure there's such a thing as "certified" medical tubing as originally installed by Brittain. If his mechanic will supervise and sign off him replacing his tubing, he's legal.
  9. So the whole idea of a Private Non-Commercial category that was proposed is now dead?

    Need advice on this plane

    Nice paint and interior, but lack of a functioning autopilot is a real negative. I'd rather have a working Brittain and no GPS than on inop AP and a fancy navigator. And does a '71 have the hard to fix gear actuator?

    DG Precession

    One other thing, when I still had the original, bent, instrument panel my DG had significant precession. Sent it to TGH for checkout and they said it was fine. The problem was that it was a 0 degree unit and the angle of the lower panel was causing trouble. Not that I have a flat panel in, it's much better.

    DG Precession

    That looks like my alt static source valve. No idea why something like that would be attached to a vacuum line. Unless the picture is showing the back of your VSI, in which case it makes perfect sense.
  13. I've got similar leakage. I'm convinced it's some valve guide leakage on the intake valve getting into the intake port. I foul the same plug if the plane sits for a week a so. Living with it.
  14. Clarence, Yes that's the stuff. Pricey, but it did the trick. It's a shame they don't sell it in a smaller bottle. McMaster stocks it.

    western propeller

    Troutdale, KTTD. They've been around a long time and have a good reputation in this neck of the woods. They did my overhaul a few years ago and do my eddy current inspections. I have nothing but positive experiences. They did get in trouble with the feds a few years ago, I think it was paperwork related, not quality related.
