  1. Solenoid Replacement

    Merci / Thank you Yves. Looks like Ill be back in business quick.
  2. Solenoid Replacement

    Lol thanks I am a bit of a gambler but "$100 untested and uninspected" a win wouldn't feel like much of a win and as for a loss ....
  3. Solenoid Replacement

    Thanks. Before I posted I searched solenoid and came up with some information which wasn't specific enough for my lack of experience. A discussion that resolved to "Skytec metal can ones" and https://www.mcmaster.com/#solenoids/=16scf3q.
  4. My M20C has decided she loves me so much she doesn't want me to leave her alone so she leaves her electrics on after I shut off the master to keep me around. With a little help from my mechanic I suspect it's the solenoid. The parts manual lists the solenoid as part number 001464 which I cant seem to source from anywhere. Does anyone have the part number of a suitable replacement? Thanks! Dave.
  5. oil temp gauge

    Awesome, thanks. I'll let you know if I need to take you up on that offer in the next day or two.
  6. oil temp gauge

    Thanks for the great advice and giving us something to chase. $0.25 ... that's probably $0.32 Canadian.
  7. oil temp gauge

    I only assumed it was, but I suppose I really don't know. I will check for any markings if I get a chance later today.
  8. oil temp gauge

    i suppose I could do that, just doesn't make sense that it works fine when not needed; that's why mechanic was questioning its placement.
  9. oil temp gauge

    It worked in boiling water, it worked when shorted out, it doesn't work plugged into the engine. Consider it works in theory, just not in practice.
  10. Since purchase my oil temp gauge doesn't work. We pulled out the sensor, shorted it and it registered. We dipped it in boiling water and it read approx 232. I do have an engine analyzer that has a working oil temp gauge but I'd like to have the quick visual (besides the analyzer is only really supposed to be a secondary). Does anyone have any thoughts? I've attached a picture of where the probe is. Dave
  11. Taxi with pitot cover on

    Great idea, thanks for it. I will remember next time.
  12. Taxi with pitot cover on

    Noted .... I have a 50 point something megapixel camera and plenty of very fine glass to go with it ... this is the best I could come up :S.
  13. Taxi with pitot cover on

    Ahhh, thank you, I believe that solved the mystery. I also left the wing covers on.
  14. Taxi with pitot cover on

    of course I am just making an assumption that it has something to do with the pitot cover as it was the first time on when I started up.
