  1. I heard from my buddy out there, it was pretty bad, totalled his pickup and wife's jeep. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  2. Just got done with IFR Certs at Silverhawk and the ramp guys teased me with this when I came to pick it up.
  3. Yup, Pryor, Oklahoma. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  4. Been thinking about busting open the old 36" RCA tube tv in the attic for the degausser. CFII was a little concerned with mine, but my check ride was cx last week due to wx and now im in annual this month. IA is gonna try the compensators first, but I'll be sure to show him this post.

  6. Mine does too, not sure why... Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  7. Actually had one side all apart last annual to install my fuel flow, it’s not slip joint. Still looks new.
  8. Forgot how hard it was to get the gear up on a go arounds after doing a few approaches with the CFI. Of course I was above 80 and positive rate of climb.
  9. Seems like you could get to it by removing the interior panel, but i have never specifically looked.
  10. My mechanic says my elevator bungees have more play in them than he would like to see. You can wiggle the nut in the tube a little bit. So I started looking for replacements and found this post from Alex in 2012 And then my mind started racing and thought about this post Granted the assembly failed at full deflection during run up, and I doubt that the downed pilot would have been using full deflection during take-off, but there is always the what if. Any way, is there any way of rebuilding these (mine is 740040-1)? What is the allowable play in these? I didn't find the answer anywhere in the service manual.
  11. Alan - is that air intake boot still available? is it for an E or F? How big are the holes in it???
  12. Well crap, my boot went from a few frays last year to I can get 2 fingers through the bottom. Now Mooney is telling Lasar and SWTA that because of quality assurance issues they are going back to the manufacturer to revise their materials. I guess this is good on Mooney to be proactive and fix an ongoing problem on this part. But.... I need a boot! Duct tape anyone? I also tried Top Gun, Dugosh, Oasis and Maxwell. If anybody knows of one on a shelf somewhere, I'd be interested.
  13. Yup, the 3M wheel with PPG Ditzo is was what i used, i had 50 years of gunk on mine, some places more than 1/8" thick. Key is to get it clean and wipe it again to get the oils from your hands off with the Ditzo. Hit it at annual with some spray silicone. I have had no issues since i replaced almost 2 years ago. A bag of clothespins to hold it in place every few inches while applying helps.
