    Fixing a door seal coming loose

    I have reattached the seal with rubber cement a few times. The problem is that the seal sticks to the door jam after being tied down on a hot ramp for a few days. What are y’all using to combat sticking? Talc powder, Vaseline, Teflon? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Vacuum Regulator

    Gotcha. Mine is a single hose inlet.

    Vacuum Regulator

    Mine is a 1977. It appears many components from the F's were used when building the early J's. As best I can tell, the regulator was probably one of them. I have not been to the airport today to confirm, but Dr. Google has several firewall pics from 77 J's which have a single hose attachment on the firewall side. I have confirmed a single hose attachment on the interior side of my regulator. See for example:

    Vacuum Regulator

    For those of you who have removed the ever so trusty vacuum systems from your planes, I am looking to help you prevent a vacuum regulator from collecting dust on the shelf. I have noticed that my regulator is acting odd in that the suction starts off very high and, after 30-45 minutes, settles down into the green and remains steady for the remainder of the flight. An uneducated guess leads me to believe it is a vacuum regulator issue. I believe mine is model 2H3-10. If you have one you are willing to part with on the cheap, I am interested in taking it off your hands so I can patch this system until it is shelved for a pair of G5's.

    Anyone fly their Mooney into Gaston’s? I am looking to go there, but am leaning toward flying into a neighboring airport and shuttling in. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    M20J Spinner

    My IA reinspected the spinner today and agreed there is no crack therefore no airworthiness issue. I appreciate your thoughts, offers, and input. Crisis averted on this one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    M20J Spinner

    If I get through without replacement, I will strip the paint as the scratch draws the eye to the drill hole. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    M20J Spinner

    I am nearing the end of my 3rd annual and my IA discovered my spinner was previously stop-drilled. He indicated it is an illegal fix and is not airworthy. I took a look at the spinner today and it is apparent that an inept mechanic was at work as the spinner was never cracked. Rather, he stop-drilled a scratch in the paint finish. (SMH). Since the spinner is not cracked, does the drill hole still result in an unairworthy spinner? If so, what are our replacement options? I have a McCauley 2 blade prop.

  13. I have a spare that was in good working order when removed for an upgrade. Send me a PM if you decide to swap the unit in lieu of repairs. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ram Air seal between lower cowling and intake

    My guess, based on the quoted price, he is talking about the gasket that fits on the ram air inlet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    IO-360 Fuel Pump

    The drain was pretty easy to trace. It was the one still dripping 3 days after the last flight and lead right to the fuel pump...and confirmed by my IA. Great advice on pivoting the engine. I sure wish there was another 3” between the engine and firewall.
