  1. Yes that’s how I have done it in the past.
  2. They seem to be hard to find, I guess I do mine the old fashion way
  3. Looking to upgrade my 67 M20F left instrument panel, anyone have a CAD or a drawing, or an old panel that I can get the measurements from so I don’t have to remove mine until I’m ready Looking to install 2 G5s and remove the bend.
  4. My 67F with 3 blades, well rigged, flap gap seals, lower cowl closed, 8-11K DA, 65-68% power, 9.9-10.1 GPH 155KTS TAS
  5. Found this same rub on my first annual on my F with OEM cowl, split rubber hose over the aluminum, High temp RTV, and a slight squeeze on the scat. Easypeasy
  6. I have a few of them but I’m out of town for 3 weeks
  7. We have all done things in aviation that if known about, other aviators would think we are dumb, silly, or incompetent. Hell this is in every aspect of life I think. My .02
  8. My F handles grass just fine. Pucks handle the bumps very well, increase your TO and landing distances, pay attention to morning dew!
  9. I would prefer someone produce the old style slider for a fair price, as my old slider has lasted 50+ years so I would only have to buy 1. Some younger folks. Might have to buy 2
  10. +1 on this. The only question would be, when is it a hot start? How long after shutdown do you consider this procedure? At what time does it turn into a normal start. best thing for starting that I did on my F was to install a sky tec starter.
  11. I use one of the non lighted versions on my motorcycle to ensure I travel the better roads and not the ones the GPS wants me to travel . Airplane I use my own laminated or ForeFlight’s checklist.
  12. I pulled new wires to each wingtip strobes on my 67F ads they had them connected to the nav lights, not to hard, a few bad screws, used my daughters skinny long arms to run the wires, then a new a breaker Switch for the strobes, maybe 4 hours to complete. Well worth the effort so I can turn strobes off on the ground at night and IMC at night.
  13. I will also add to check the clamp bolt that attaches the cowl flap Assy to the motor mount, these can become loose and the whole assy will slide down, causing the rod end to contact the firewall and if loose, your cowl flaps will not stay in adjustment. I have not been able to find a measurement for the correct placement, but mine were loose, I was able to move mine up 1/2 inch, leveled both sides, getting space between the rod ends and the firewall then adjust cowl flaps. As stated before if your rod ends are hitting the firewall you will struggle with pushing and pulling the cowl flap knob. After reading again I see this was already address by shad
  14. Looking for a Brittain altitude hold chamber PN 11353 . If anyone has one laying around let me know
