    M20C
  1. Mine did this as well... Sent it out to Butler avionics... They worked two different times on it and finally said it needs a new board which really means it is doa ... Apparently the older ones had leaky parts that after almost 40 years of service just kills the controller board .... If yours is like mine it means it is time for either a referb 155 (about 2k) or wait on the tkm that comes out later this summer and will be a simple plug and play type option for about $3700. Of course could be time for that Garmin 650 you have always wanted.
  2. I will simply echo what everyone is saying. I almost never use carb heat especially on a hot summer day. If I think I am needing and descending from cooler weather once I get almost to pattern altitude (before entering the pattern) I might pull carb heat for 30 seconds or so just to be sure.
  3. I am in Houston my 20C just went on the market as for sale or for partnership. I currently have a couple of people that would like to do a partnership and maybe looking at either a 50/50 or 1/3rds. You can see pictures here or on https://www.trade-a-plane.com/search?category_level1=Single+Engine+Piston&make=MOONEY&model=M20C&listing_id=226 Also, congratulations ragedracer. I know you will enjoy her. I have enjoyed my 20c tremendously. So much so I might be staying in as a partner even after I get into my new one (the new one is a whole nother story for another day).
  4. I know mine is not the fastest but actually hit over 200 kts ground speed on this trip. Of course at that altitude had almost a 50 kt tail wind. Makes for a fast trip when the wind is in your favor.
  5. I really like you panel. Great job, but I love the quote I don't think anyone here cares about how fast our Mooney is. We just like to have plenty of elbow room, useful load, and nice paint.
  6. I hanger over at Hooks and am willing to take you sometime. Also, my 20C just went on the market as for sale or for partnership.

  7. A local upholstery shop here in Spring. They have done some cars and a boat for me (they had done a few planes but this was the most extensive on plane they had done). I bought all the FAR'd material, brought them each item and they did the work in there shop.
  8. Thank you. Yes I will be adjusting it today in-fact.

  12. https://www.trade-a-plane.com/search?category_level1=Single+Engine+Piston&make=MOONEY&model=M20C&listing_id=2267232&s-type=aircraft Here is a link to my M20C that I have listed. I have it listed at 37k or I will stay in it as a partner. This plane is mechanically in tip top shape (if it were not I obviously would not stay in as a partner) and has a new interior. You can also see some of my pictures on here. Would be nice to add a G430W and fresh paint but other than that I would fly it anywhere.
  13. I just did mine as well. I kept it simple with the seats but did everything in leather. Black leather yokes and everything else in tan leather. When I say everything in leather what I mean is wrapped the plastic window trim, side panels, post trim etc. (everything but the new tan carpet). I need to get a few more since I have also recently my m20c on the market.

    New Leather Wrapped Yokes
  15. Forgot my C is also listed on barnstormer, trade a plane, and controller. I have spent a lot of time and money making this plane mechanically right and would be willing to fly it anywhere. Check out the newly wrapped yokes. The yoke pictures are only on here and not in the adds.
