    Airplane Covers - Which one is best?

    I was really impressed with Bruce. I had one of their covers from my old C, and tried to fit it on my J. The fit was good, but an antenna was preventing the cover from sitting correctly. I called Bruces to see if there was anything I could do. The had me ship them the cover, and fill out a new worksheet indicating where the antenna was. They added a zip up portion to the end of the cover allowing proper fit on my J. They also added snaps to the front straps, and a some screws with the receiving end of the snaps for my cowling. All for free, within a week, and even covered the cost to ship back to me. If I ever need a new cover, it'll be one from Bruce.

    Antennas

    I had an issue with my GPS dropping lock on satellites... turned out the connection on the back of the radio worked its way loose.
  3. I pulled this from the Foreflight manual. The manual reads as one would expect. A crosswind from the left would have an arrow from the left and point to the right. I looked at a few other airports around the country, and they appeared to be reporting correctly. KSUN, as you stated, is reporting a left crosswind when it should be from the right. Strange.

    A&P for M20F at KAWO or KPAE

    The folks at Command Aviation in Bellingham did a nice job maintaining my Mooney before I bought it. Enjoy flying around one of the most beautiful parts of the country!

    College World Series, Omaha, FBOs?

    TacAir at KOMA will take good care of you. I don't think there is a ramp fee there. Signature (also KOMA) will charge you a ramp fee...maybe $30, unless you buy a lot of their expensive fuel. KOMA will be your closest bet to the ballpark downtown..easily "uber-able". Council Bluffs (KCBF) is about a 20 min drive from downtown, but the folks at Advanced Air are some great people. Stay away from Oracle at Millard (KMLE) Expect a $15-25 ramp fee, and expensive fuel.
  6. I'll take the filter cutter tool.... PM sent.
  7. I keep my Mooney on base at Offutt. PM me with his contact info and I’ll reach out. Some good people here around Omaha!

    Fuel drip after shutdown

    An update on my situation... Eric from Oasis was kind enough to stop by on Friday. He wasn’t too concerned about the low boost pump pressure. Something to keep an on, and if it gets worse, it may be time for a new boost pump. I will fly to Willmar next week to address the excessive rpm drop during mag check. While safe to fly, he thinks the left mag is about .5 degrees off, and requires retiming.
  10. Count me in..looking forward to it!

    Fuel drip after shutdown

    I just checked it again, and again PSI peaked at about 14.2 psi, and dropped as soon as I closed the throttle and mixture. I spoke with Eric at Oasis, and he said it is possible the mixture isn't closing all the way, which can also cause the PSI to drop. Obviously I am hoping that is the case. He is suppose to be in Nebraska later this week, and may stop by for a look. Will continue to post any updates for those interested.

    Fuel drip after shutdown

    Good info, thank you. I do monitor it during flight, and it is around 25psi.

    Fuel drip after shutdown

    I have not had any issues with cold starts... however, it has become more difficult to hot start. Again, I think the hot weather has something to do with it, but is likely exacerbating another issue. What sort of fuel PSI should one expect from the electric fuel pump alone? I have never thought to check..

    Fuel drip after shutdown

    They were inspected at last annual, a couple of months ago. Will have them checked again if the plugs look ok.

    Fuel drip after shutdown

    To provide an update.... The original drip was in fact, coming from the sniffle valve. I did a runup today, and it did not drip. Although, I wouldn't expect it to drip, as the engine probably didn't get hot enough by just running on the ground. I did the test as Jose suggested. Fuel PSI got to just over 14 psi, and then did drop after I turned off the pump and closed the throttle/mixture. I'd say it dropped about 2 psi in 20-30 seconds. I then started the engine and did a mag check. The left mag was normal, about 60rpm drop. However, the right mag, which also usually drops 60 rpm, now drops 120 rpm. I tried running up and leaning to burn off any lead, but it did not resolve the issue. I have Tempest fine wires all around. I doubt the issues are related, and obviously will not fly it until I can talk to my A&P. Definitely have some gremlins to work out.
