  1. Printing owner checklist

    no idea what it is for a mac, but publisher would work on a windows box, will your printer print both sides at once or do you have to feed the page back through for the other side?
  2. @Hank but would it PIC or SIC? I think SIC due to fact that PIC time has to be the sole manipulator and this maneuver definitely requires a crew member that would have to participate. You might be able to hire a professional for the maneuver but the same dilemma with the possibility Dual Instruction received and who would want that in their logs
  3. All I have to say if you and your girlfriend want to break in the Mooney, do not take a selfie and post it on any social media where your wife might find it
  4. What Jacks do you Reccommend?

    Couple of photos of the rendering above
  5. Flight Control Pushrod Corrosion

    The 2nd photo looks like it has stalagmites growing off it, some of the other stuff looks like dried lube and dirt build up. Most of the hardware needs replaced
  6. As others have said, Airframe, Powerplant, Prop and Appliances are all seperate searches. The Appliance AD's is the ones that are a pain to look up, but doable. Cross reference it with the current AD Compliance Record to catch the one you missed plus any that were missed in the past. In a strange way it's was a fun research project when I did my E and I'm currently doing a 172
  7. NDH is a plus but not a deal breaker, at least not for me. Damage that is repaired correctly might not even show up visually on even the best of pre-buys except for the log entries. Retracts gear up or have the gear collapse or get wing smacked against something all the time and I would venture to say more than we would like to think of are not documented in any way, they just get fixed in a closed hangars and returned to service.

    I'm not sure you could make the locking collars that cheap, hell if your an amazon prime member it would be faster....
  9. How many hours is too many??

    Airframe TT was fairly low on my list. As most have said, a thorough Pre-Buy will tell you more of what your getting. Engine TT is a different animal
  10. Annual Questions - ‘65 E

    If it's going to be a patch and not a full strip and reseal why not go over to Don Maxwell?
  11. Skytec Starter Grinding

    What you are saying is either the starter assembly is too far aft or the ring gear is too far forward, is this correct?
  12. What Jacks do you Reccommend?

    I have leveling bolts for my wing jacks, but haven't put them on yet, so far I haven't needed them. I need to decide to install them or not before I send it all out for powder coating (after 2 1/2 years)
  13. What Jacks do you Reccommend?

    I agree, but I also make/modify tools/equipment to make them better. If you count time & material it would have been cheaper to buy jacks and an A-Frame...but as I mentioned above I have seen an "Aviation" jack fail and its a pain to swap it out, if my hydraulic jack fails I just take the bottle jack out and put in another. Not being an engineer I tend to make things much heavier than they need to be, but I sleep well knowing that my plane is rock solid and its safe
