  1. I used the Jet Center last year and found them to be pretty helpful. When I landed there my windshield was covered with bugs and the line guy didn’t hesitate cleaning them off. I went to the FBO the next day and asked if I could use their courtesy car for a few hours (more like 4 hrs) and they just gave me the keys.
  2. I’d like to order 2 Shaw 531 O ring Kits for my M20R, would you please send me your address and I’ll get a check out. Also do you sell the lube for the O ring installation? My phone # 631-885-1253 or you can PM me through mooneyspace.

  3. I also forgot to add that 7FL6 has 2 self serve fuel facilities and a couple of maintenance facilities on the field.
  4. Spruce Creek Fly-In Community 7FL6, been here for 12 yrs. now and enjoying my retirement. The 4000ft recently paved runway has an instrument approach. If you enjoy playing golf and tennis we also have an 18 hole golf course in the community. The Fly-In also has 2 restaurants on the property. Hangars and hangar space are always available for rent.
  5. After about 25 yrs On my 1980 M20J I used rivnuts on the holes that were stripped out and they worked great.
  6. Check and make sure that the Hobbs meter is not running after shutdown. I found mine did and I just disconnected it, pulled one wire of the back of it. You can also hear if the Hobbs meter running if you put your ear close to it.
  7. I believe I bought a universal tail pipe hanger from an auto parts store and cut the rubber out from in between the metal brackets.
  8. I had a 1980 M20J and I believe I bought a right side cowl flap and it fit the left side without a problem.
  9. What I did on my M20J was install a right side exhaust cowl flap on the left side, there both the same except the right one is for the exhaust pipe. By doing this you’ll have more air flow which will lower your temps.
  10. My oral stall warning didn’t sound on the ground either only when I got a couple of hundred feet in the air taking off. Move the tab up and wiggle it from side to side and see if it hangs up, that’s what happened to mine.
  11. I had the same problem once after washing the airplane, I must have pushed the stall warning tab up and over to the outboard side of the wing and the tab got hung up. I found the problem after landing and that was the last time that happened. I now make sure after washing around the stall warning tab that it moves freely.
  12. I just replaced one of mine, second one in 7 months. Aircraft Spruce sells them about $100 with shipping, ALCOR 86252. I would only replace the CHT probe that’s not working, very easy to replace if doing it yourself. As far as the tach goes I found that replacing the connectors on the three wires coming from the left mag solved my problem with a flickering tach. The plug in connectors are located on the left side aft bulkhead. PM me if you’d like.
  13. The Ovations have 2 static drains, one under the left wing close to the fuselage the other is located on the bottom of the fuselage left side aft of the wing by your access panel.
  14. The one thing I’ve learned when landing my O2 is never think about using the breaks until you get the flaps up. When I had my M20J I used aerodynamic breaking with the control wheel pulled all the way back with the flaps down and apply the breaks, never had any problems with flat spots.
