  1. Removed from my 1966 M20E in working order. I installed a Plane Power system. $100.00

    20C sitting a while

    I was given a 65 M20E that sat for 4 years with a mid time engine. I spent a year and a half restoring her completely including paint, interior, fuel bladders, avionics, gear over and prop overhaul. I didn't overhaul the engine but did overhaul or replace all the accessories. I'm an A&P so labor was free and I still spent $85,000.00. If I had to do it over again I would pass on it. Having said that I enjoy flying her.
  3. Thanks for the information guys. I'll post the solution when I figure it out.
  4. Does anyone know the correct belt P/N for an Inter-av alternator installation? I'm currently using a Lycoming belt P/N 37B19774-374 belt. The problem with this belt is the pulley on the alternator in wider than the belt. Even when I tighten the belt it goes to the bottom of the pulley allowing the belt to slip. I'm told the belt that came with the STC was a Gates belt. I can either change the pulley or the belt. Mooney M20/E

    Engine Problem

    I had a similar Issue with my E model. Mine had sat for four years before a complete restoration. I overhauled all components firewall forward except the engine itself and the fuel distributor. On my first test flight it started to backfire on the downwind leg however I was able to make it back. Turns out one of the injectors clogged even though the fuel system was new. I removed the fuel distributor and found it was corroded causing the injector to clog. Over the next four or five flights I had high EGT on Cylinder number two. I swapped injectors around and no changes. I removed the stainless line from the distributor to the injector and ran safety wire though it and cleaned it with pressure. This worked and all EGT run the same. I think a piece of corrosion had broken off and got stuck in the line reducing the fuel flow enough to cause high EGT but enough fuel to run. I hope this helps.

    Step Retract Bellows M20C

    Brittain had my servo for a year and a half while they made their new mold. I received an overhauled servo with their new boot installed several weeks ago. It looks and works great. They have a backlog to work through so it may take awhile.

    M20E Fuel caps

    Yes I have Two of them
  8. If you include the fuel sending units with the cluster gauge I'll buy them for 300.00.
  9. Can you show a picture of the back of the Garwin cluster gauges.

    Mhemperly made an offer April 26 2016 for $50.00 Regardless of that what do you want for the cluster gauge. You posted a picture of two units sitting on top of each other.

    Do you still have the cluster Gauge pictured on top with the cannon plug and individual gauges? It looks like you wanted $50.00, if so I'll take it.

    Slow Starter

    As it turns out the problem was a bad battery. It's only a year and a half old, not impressed with Gill's battery. I installed a new battery and all is good. A lot of extra work but after 50 years of service new solenoids, clean connections and a new battery cable, I should be good to go.

    All good information, thanks for the feed back. I removed the power relay mounted on the battery box. The power cables needed cleaning as did the mounting hardware. I'm replacing the power and starter relays. All other connections looked good. If this doesn't fix it I will go with the Concord battery. I'll let you know the outcome in a couple of days.

    The engine starts fine usually 2 or 3 revolutions when cold and about 4 or 5 when hot. I'll trouble shoot with the Skytec troubleshooting guide tomorrow. Thanks for that.
