  1. Newly Overhauled Engine, No Existing Logs?

    Its a myth that a plane must be airworthy (real or in the IA’s head) to be signed off. Signing the annual just means you did it. If there are airworthiness issues those are listed as part of the annual sign off. Those discrepancies can then be cleared by someone else (not necessarily an IA). So refusing to sign that you did the inspection would be a very odd way of addressing a concern -Robert
  2. Tie down rings

    The poh also says to remove them for flight. -Robert
  3. SB's and AD's

    For some they are. Just not for us as part 91. -Robert
  4. M20E Fuel Starvation Accident

    Getting clearance, taxing. I plan for 10-15 from engine start to run up area. -Robert
  5. M20E Fuel Starvation Accident

    3-5 minutes or seconds? I think you'd have a hazmat crew show up if you drained both thanks for 5 minutes at a major airport. -Robert
  6. M20E Fuel Starvation Accident

    Have you started with the selector in the off position to test that? There can be a fair amount of fuel in the system. -Robert
  7. M20E Fuel Starvation Accident

    For me the POH says to do this as part of the preflight checklist. So I've been doing it for 20 some years. -Robert
  8. M20E Fuel Starvation Accident

    Lasar told me there have been cases of fuel selectors jamming mid-change ( in the off position). Because of that I removed mine and sent it to them. They offer a full service on the units. -Robert

    That’s just Lycomings way of saying not to exceed the limitations set by the airframe manufacture. Some setups have limitations for how long you can use full boost etc. -Robert
  10. Service Bulletin M20-088

    Same experience back when I was doing my cfii prep 10 some years ago. My door latch had a habit of not locking in the unlock position and dropped in flight. We had to wait for someone to walk by and I passed the keys out the storm window for them to unlock and let us out. -Robert

    Even with the stand run you still have a prescribed ground run from Lycoming. -Robert

    If this was your boat I'd say your bellows looks good! -Robert
  13. Newly Overhauled Engine, No Existing Logs?

    Lycoming supplied my engine with a data sheet showing a full page of stats the engine generated on the stand. I can tell it was at least full operating temp. -Robert
  14. Newly Overhauled Engine, No Existing Logs?

    This gets back to my soap box that A&P's should not be made to learn how to overhaul an engine in order to legally be able to change a vacuum pump. The days of overhauling an engine every 300 hours under a shade tree died out in the 1930's. I don't know of any on field general repair facility that still does overhauls. Its an appliance. Send it off, reinstall. -Robert
  15. Service Bulletin M20-088

    That’s all I did. Safety wire through the plastic panel with a key ring on the end to pull. Not rocket science. -Robert
