    McFarlane Throttle cable

    That was a good idea, I looked today to see if I could flip the bolt over but then I'll have an issue with my intercom which mounts directly below. You know how one things leads to another on airplanes? Everything seems to turn into a project.

    McFarlane Throttle cable

    Here is a picture from behind my panel, throttle cable hole being on the right. 3/4” isn’t going to work in my airplane. Hopefully this will help others get the correct cable for their airplane in the future, it really is true that every one of these airplanes are different!

    McFarlane Throttle cable

    No, I removed the cables yesterday and completed their forms. They are quoting $325 each for the mixture and prop, $525 for the 1/2” throttle or $375 for the 3/4”.

    McFarlane Throttle cable

    Hi Bob, Boring out the hole to 3/4” is no problem but the location of the j bar mount (2 small tubes welded to the structure) are in very close proximity to the throttle cable housing, if I go larger I’m pretty confident it won’t fit. I’ll take another look tomorrow, maybe the threaded portion will not interfere, but I seem to remember the housing making direct contact in this area. Thanks for sharing your experience with McFarlane, Kelli has been helpful and quick to respond to me. -Joe
  6. Hi Everyone, I'm looking for some feedback on the McFarlane custom made throttle cable. This is a replacement for a '67 M20F and the throttle cable I removed was a 1/2"-20. McFarlane responded that they normally produce a 3/4"-16 and the price will be high for a 1/2"-20. When I removed the cable I noticed that the 1/2"-20 has zero clearance against the J-bar handle mount (which my airplane does not utilize, other than it has the intercom bracket mounted there), so I think I'll have to pay the higher price. Am I missing something, how are you all getting a 3/4-16 throttle cable in there? Thanks! Joe

    One on one Formation flying today

    Nice pics, looks like fun! I did the same with a friend not long ago, and the Mooney sure does have a nice comfortable speed range that was required to get this photo.

    Hangar insurance

    I discussed this exact scenario with my agent last year and was told my hangar insurance does not provide coverage on the airplanes stored inside. If the building collapses and there is no ground policy on the airplanes it’s a really bad day.

    Hey! What’s wrong with the VW Beetle? It’s one of the best cars I’ve ever owned. People smile at you and tell fun stories of when they had a Beetle. Waves and thumbs up everyday. Bullet proof reliable and easy to maintain. If it only had wings it would be one of the best commuters out there!

    IO-360 A1A

    This one is going in my airplane as soon as Ron has it assembled. Thanks for the lead!

    Engine trouble on takeoff-I was lucky.

    Mine had not been overhauled since 1989. The system seemed to operate fine but it looked terrible and the linkage was getting sloppy. I sent the components off to Russ at D&G Supply and he did a great job. The servo and divider now look brand new. http://www.dgsupply.com/about-us
  12. Maybe the issue was that the “Mooney Museum” name was already taken. http://www.sarahamooneymuseum.org/ In reality, Mooneyspace is the Mooney museum. Keeping them flying!

    Mooney + Porsche

    Yes, many did. This is a true statement.

    Mooney + Porsche

    Porsche going to water cooling had more to do with noise and exhaust emissions than power, look at their competitive history and you will see that Porsche did not struggle to produce extreme amounts of reliable power with turbocharged air cooled engines. Just couldn’t continue to do air cooled and meet the federal noise and exhaust emissions. (993 was last of the air cooled. Not counting the 944/968, the 9x6 Boxster & 911 started the ‘modern’ production water cooled cars)
  15. I’d call @Alan Fox 856 419 5209 I think he has an engine from an M20E, see listing in the classified section
