  1. Your right, but there are a lot of variables like the peak draw that may happen when you transmit. 1.5 to 2 hours would probably be safe. That being said, what you did was superb. Find the closest suitable airport and get down. Don't take new risks, but get down. If you have to ferry...figure that out in VFR. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  2. Couldn't find the ATC. Do you remember what freq. you were on?

    Acclaim Ultra purchase group, thought experiment

    I'd do it, but I doubt there are three other similar pilots at KHFY....if there are let me know.

    Dog house parts

    Lasar has most of them. I wonder if you can buy a complete kit somewhere?

    Carb Heat Box Actuator Failure

    Found one in salvage, hoping it is in as good condition as they say. We'll probably get a spare or new one in the near future. Some of the parts for our 1962 M20C are near impossible to find...otherwise there's going to be a lot of minor/major forms that we'll need to start filing.

    Lasar's out of stock. Any other ideas.

  11. So, this happened on run-up today. Where can we (me & A&P) get the parts for repair? Or, do my A&P need to send it out for repair ;-(

    New Owner of a M20E

    Given it is a new engine I would make sure the OH shop is involved in the process. The temp could be correct... ...and they may have different processes to diagnose. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Quick Question about Carb Heat

    I agree. Going to have the carb overhauled just in case there isn't something else going on. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Quick Question about Carb Heat

    I have heard that ever since I owned a Mooney and so I only used carb heat at run up. Big mistake....engine almost quit on me three times this year and each time carb heat resolved the issue. It's a roll of the dice. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
