    Owner produced heat shield

    a common issue with exhaust systems is how they are installed, if the system is just bolted down as it goes together it will be in a bind and as it heats up and expands it generally gets worse and parts distort and/or fail. I generally install the complete system before evenly tightening things up, then do the same with the heat shields

    Tempest oil filters

    2 pages of replies and @mooneyflyfast still doesn't like tempest oil filters, the 2 guys in the videos are wrong (not by much, but still wrong), I still get pissed when I see someone back drag a file or saw blade, and for gods sake if you don't know which end of the screw driver to hit with the ratchet when chiseling a nut loose check the internet

  7. +1, if the rubber is playable (fingernail test) I'd install them

    cleaning inside cowl

    the best thing I have found is the guy across the field, a couple pieces of paper is all it takes. It also cleans the whole plane not just the inside of the cowl

    Now You See IT-Now You Don’t...

    If it has a key ring you should be able to fish it out with a magnet, sounds like the defrost vent swallowed it

    Abilene, TX: PIREP Request

    Just south of Amarillo, Tx is Palo Duro Canyon. Not as big as the Grand Canyon, but still a pretty big ditch and not that far out of route

    Under attack

    Just saw on FB that LASAR might be in the cross hairs
  15. It does ck the P leads, turning the switch to off monetarily after a flight verifies the P leads are still intact after the flight and is somewhat safe when the engine is off
