    Well then I'd say you're very fortunate. There's no way? Please note the 'in our experience' that preluded the 500hr statement. About half the ones we've changed had burned out flame tubes with large sections missing and the other half was due to cracks. Also, the ones replaced were around 500hrs of use (not life of the plane). Once deterioration starts, it doesn't stop when the engine isn't in use. For what it's worth -in our experience- service life of small Piper muffler cans are less. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    We're based out of KMRN (Morganton, NC). We offer a wide arrange of services, you can visit our website www.aglaviation.com to see a more comprehensive list. Or, you can ask us if you have something specific in mind - Lynn is very honest as to whether he's capable. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Another thing, in the giant scheme of things consider this: In our experience, the stock muffler lasts about 500hrs. Parts and labor costs about $1000 to change it. So, in 2000hrs you've spent around $4000 in exhaust maintenance. The PF system costs relatively the same (it'll be a wash financially) BUT... for 2000hrs you get somewhere along the lines of 18more horsepower (more with the airfilter addition).

    Our only benchmark we have for that is a flight school 172 we maintain. The exhaust system has went past the TBO of the engine (2000hrs). It flies roughly 1000hrs a year. We have several new installs (mooneys included), but they're not that old nor fly that much. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Dawley is great for overhaul. I would highly recommend them. If you would like new, call a shop and have them order from Aerospace Welding. If you'll send me a message, I'll be glad to give you pricing (our cost) for a regular, ribbed muffler (we just ordered 1 today). It's not much more than an overhauled unit. We're also a PowerFlow dealer, it is costly but it's a complete system. The flight school planes we've installed them on are lasting til TBO. However, the Mooney exhaust system seems to be inherently problematic - we do at least 1 Mooney annual a week and we're replacing approx +25% of the mufflers. They seem to have a service life (in Lynn's opinion) of about 500hrs. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

  10. It's that time of year again!!! The future schedule will start to slow down a little bit. So far we have very little written on our board for October [emoji24] Last year's slow time (which was our fault) brought us very close to shutting our doors. We certainly do not want to be in that same position again. If you schedule some work with us from October 1st to December 31st, we will give a 10% discount on ALL LABOR. Help us keep our doors open this winter! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Hydraulic Flaps Question

    If the system is working correctly, you should get immediate response pumping the handle. Lynn said it sounds like there is air trapped in the system somewhere. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Which mag do you have? Lynn is thinking it's in the neighborhood of 48-60", if you don't know exactly, err on the side of safety... You have to make up the end that goes to the switch anyway, so shoot for longer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
