  1. The flapper valve plate and shaft on my heater box are pretty badly rusted. It’s a ‘66 E model. Anybody have one they want to sell?

    Ok I just took a closer look at the parts manual and I should have a flap type valve on the forward side of the firewall as you said. That has a seal P/N 640047-013 it looks like. Here is the link on LASAR: https://lasar.com/baffle-baffle-seals/seal-640047-013?rq=640047 It looks like a circular piece. Does that make sense? I’d go check the plane but it’s far away.

    I’ve got the old slider style heater box valve not the newer flap type (1966 E). Looking at the parts manual I don’t see any seals listed in the heater box. Anyone know how to improve the ability to shut off the hot air in the slider type? The mechanic that has the plane right now said the valve works normally but I know it has felt like hot air still is getting by.

    I found this one on beechtalk. I think there is one listed there currently.

    Good idea. I did make sure it was closed but I will check the seals. I had been thinking the air was too warm even with the heat off. Can’t believe I didn’t see the danger there. I called Dawley and Knisley and they were both a month for overhaul. AWI said about a week and $1020. I’m sending the risers as well so they fit.

    Anyway the only reason I had a monitor was from hearing the story about the guy that woke up in his Mooney in a field in North Dakota or somewhere a couple years ago. Thanks to that him for sharing his story.

    Yeah it was probably higher since I was about lights out. I’ve done the hypoxia simulator trainer in the Navy several times and this was felt about like that but with a headache added in.

    Vague memory of 240 or some number after i opened the door. The sensor was in the door strap handle.

    Seriously. I would likely be dead now if not for that CO monitor. My wife would have been pissed.

    Anyone know the best place for a ball and socket type muffler for an M20E? Dawley quoted me a month to overhaul. Also, check your mufflers. I almost died today. Flying at 8000 with low cielings below my CO monitor started beeping. Ended up almost losing consciousness several times. Opened the door and window to try to get air. Was able to do an ILS and land but it was close.
  13. I found a tear in the step servo boot. It is available if anyone still wants it, but for $50.
  14. Removed from my '66 E last month. They were all working. The four PC wing leveler servos (two rudder and two aileron) and the LSA-2 gyro from the wing leveler system were all gone through by Brittain last fall (2017). The vacuum step servo was last at Brittain in 2005. $100 each. Update - Items Remaining: 1 Torn step servo -$50
