    Fly more. Less downtime after a long year of mechanical and avionics work. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  4. Baggage door piano hinge

    The actual hinge at the top, not the part that holds it up Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  5. Has anyone replaced the piano hinge on the baggage door and fuselage? Ours is showing some fatigue. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk

    I've even added one step to the shutdown list: close air scoop. Only really important when parking outside. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk

    Thanks for the offer. They've got to get somewhere that has a hub like CLT or further north. They were just able to get a rental car, so worst case they have a few day drive.

    Anyone in the Orlando area taking their plane north out of harms way? If so, two friends of ours are going to be stranded there because SW cancelled their flights for Saturday and there isn't anything available. They are going to PVD, but honestly anywhere north where they could get to a commercial hub would probably work.
  9. Mag Timing ...300RPM drop now won't start

    Of course as luck would have it, I jammed my heal into the corner of a jack stand while working with the mechanic, brused the bone and ACL. So, I am in a walking boot for several weeks. I guess we have time to figure this out. ...well except the other two owners would like to fly.
  10. Mag Timing ...300RPM drop now won't start

    Got the plugs out spark on any of them. Since the mags are new and they should send a spark even if miss timed....ideas?
  11. During our annual we replaced or mags on our M20C. Once we got everything tougher we checked the timing using a tone box. Looked good. Started, did a run up test and there was a 300RPM drop on both sides. Turned it off and the plugs which had been cleaned were dirty. Cleaned them again, checked timing, and tried starting... Will not start. Ideas? Mechanic thinks the timing might be off and wants to pull the mags off to check the gear alignment. Or, a fuel supply issue.
  12. Camera Mounts / Location?????

    I mounted my Garmin Virb about 8 inches to the top left of the center of the windshield. I'll try to get a pic.
  13. Flying to see the Eclipse

    Yup, but no NOTAM or controllers to keep it organized.

    Planning to orbit with 20nm legs over the Kentucky and Illinois border.
  15. Clear AvGas?

    There is an ATSM standard for 100LL. If what you buy does not comply, the supplier is liable for misrepresentation and damages. Just be sure the damages are a drain, cleaning, and refuel and not bent metal...because one can also argue that the PIC is responsible for ensuring the fuel complies with the systems on the airplane.
