  1. Meh... I didn't find any record of that bladder ever being replaced. I suspect it might be the age of the airplane, 64 years, but I find that hard to believe as well.
  2. As a matter of fact, my right one is leaking presently. Near the top where it doesn't typically have fuel touching it. I am cringing at the thought of pulling that out and sending it to get it rebuilt.
  3. Stick your foot on the floor, roll the wing down into the wind. When you can't keep the nose straight with the runway, you've exceeded the capability.
  4. Ditto on the intake leak I have an O470 that the front two cylinders would not participate when it was cold. Rough idle, but smooth run-up. You could watch the cylinders come to life in the run-up. Once warm, it would idle fine. Found the leak under the number 5 riser and also at the boot where the balance tube connects. Fixed that and idles great now! When I had the Mooney, I had a devil of a time getting the intake tubes to seal against the cylinders. It took coating the gaskets with #3 Permatex Aviation sealer before I was able to finally get rid of the leaks.
  5. It's on top of the nose wheel well.
  6. If I were a betting man, I would bet that switch is perfectly fine. It's just out of adjustment. In the event you do need to get a new one, Mouser electronics carries them. A few years ago they were about $200. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  7. Are you sure it's bad? It looks like mine did, only moving about 1/16". Try adjusting it 1/8" closer to the pressure plate. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  8. The guy on the Hawker was a textbook job of how you should handle a gear up problem. The guy in the Aerostar, not so much. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  9. I had the same problem. Cold weather only Here's the solution.... With 90% certainty, the gear pucks are the problem. You can... Replace the pucks. $$$$ Or You can adjust the squat switch in the left wheel well about 1/8" closer to the pressure plate. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
