  1. Picked a tube up at my local shop, Linda Lou on Monday. She has one more if anyone needs it. The tube will shelf life out before I use it all!
  2. So happy to hear you are safe!
  3. Induction looked good, plugs ohmed out to 884 and 992, i think that is good, I'll check the board as I know I saw the resistance somewhere as 800-1200, injector was dirty and the hole was about half sized. Ultrasonic cleaned injector, looks great. Did not put it back together as I need some fuel lube for the injector and spark plug thread lube. Back to work tomorrow night so I might not get to fly till next Sunday or Monday. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. Thanks for all the suggestions. I am headed to the airport. Going to check induction security, pull spark plugs first and check resistance/wear. If no finding there, I will pull the #1 injector. I'll let you know what I find. Will take it all one step at a time until I find a fault.
  5. Ok, I. Did leave out some info. Number one was around 1460, the rest were around 1350. Thanks for helping me out! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. I will try it on the ground at power and see if I get the same results. I don't want to fly her until I get this solved. Definitely will look at spark plug resistance and test that. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. I will give it a shot. You think I could take plugs from a different cylinder and just swap them out? I do not have any data except what I originally posted. High EGT on number 1 that did not previously exist until this event. When leaning at cruise he vib starts after only a little bit of movement and gets progressively worse.

  8. Good advice. I just changed the fuel pump then had this problem. I'll drain and clean the gascolator as well. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. EGT was about 110 hotter than the rest. I was able to lean a bit before it started to vibrate getting progressively worse the more I leaned. I see the EGT as abnormal as my experience thus far has been no more than 30 degrees between all four until the vib started. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. Thanks Neil! appreciate the feed back!
  11. Last flight out after leveling off for cruise (3500ft) as I was pulling back mixture to lean, the engine started to vibrate. When going back to near full rich the vibration subsided. The digital EGT showed #1 around 100 to 110 degrees hotter that the other three. Pulled the plugs and they looked good, no oil and normal color as would be expected for proper burn. In looking around here on the board, my search turned up what points mostly to a clogged injector. Will be pulling the injector probably Tuesday and see what I get. In the mean time, was looking for thoughts on this issue. Up to this point the engine has run flawless and smooth for the 40 hours I have owned her! I do not have any type of engine monitor except CHT which was fine, and four position digital EGT. The run up on the ground was a 50 RPM drop left and right MAG.
  12. So far it has been no more than a month and only due to maintenance issues I was tending to.I sent out the DG compass for overhaul. The altimeter failed, and most recently my boost pump started leaking from the shaft seal. I do feel a little jittery if I go more than three weeks. I always take my time and do a thorough pre-flight and departure brief out loud to myself.
  13. GUMPS 3 times. Mid field, abeam the numbers and final.
  14. I budget 12k USD a year. I just took my fixed expenses plus figured I would average 60 hours a year. At that budget it is $124 USD an hour total, fixed and variable expenses. When my insurance goes down next year due to experience, I will be able to fly more hours for the same 12k, and my per hour cost will go down as my flight hours go up. I hold an A and P as well and can do most of my own work. If I run out of the 12k before the year is up, no flying.
  15. A hand operated vacuum would have helped in a pinch. 1-3 inches on the tank vents will help keep the spillage to a minimum. The best alternative is the empty the tanks. Good that you got it done and all is well!
