  1. I posted this in another thread too, but thought I would share what I found for posterity. Called Surefly and he offered 3 part numbers. He couldn't tell me which one was right, except that the longer part number is the dual keyway part. I did some googling and found webpage which explains what is going on. The webpage is talking specifically about the robinson helicopter, but it's for the (i)o-360 Lycoming engines and the gears are the same. https://www.aircraftmagnetoservice.net/magneto-coupling For reference in case someone needs it in the future, the dual keyway part number is 68C19622

  3. What is the part number you ended up with? I'm having the same issue right now. I have the mag I can't get to properly install and I'm struggling to find a part number.
  4. I'm in the process of installing the Surefly right now. WE just overhauled the engine and installing it during the engine install to try to make it easier. But my mechanic spent hours yesterday trying to get it to install and couldn't get it. He mentioned what you guys said above that the slick gear only has the one keyway and doesn't let you turn it around. He had mentioned we may have to get a Bendix gear that has two keyways. Have you guys found a solution for this?
  5. Somehow the prints for my 75 E have gone missing. I have the J model prints and I have the 74 and earlier prints, but the 75 E/F prints are gone. On a side note, I think I have a line on a good digital copy. A 50+MB scan of original prints. I'll probably still create a visio copy so I can edit them instead of making a literal redline. I like the idea of a clean set of prints.
  6. I'm in the middle of a big upgrade on my plane. This means cutting a lot of wires and I hate to do it without being able to redline prints and know what I did for posterity and future troubleshooting. I've started drawing the prints for my plane in Visio. Before I keep going, I thought I would check and see if anyone has done this already. I'm betting no one has. I'm working on drawing up the 1975 E model prints for my plane using the pictures @Guitarmaster shared of his prints. It's a challenge tracing wires across multiple pictures so it's really slow work. It's not perfect. I'm not a CAD guy by any definition of the word. Just a plane owner that wants to do it right and be able to keep track of changes. In the meantime, I'd like to ask those of you who do have good prints to check my work. If you can redline my work, I'll make the corrections and them share them with the community. I'd like to get them right and then I'm happy to share for everyone to use. Attached is what I have drawn so far. Mooney Electrical Prints.pdf
  7. I have one I just took out of my '75 E model. What is the pressure range you need for the fuel pressure? I think the fuel injected and carbureted ranges are different.
  8. Is that a standard Lycoming part? I'm guessing not since you said Tanis. Or is that something that would have been added by another owner and returned because I did an overhaul and it was there when it was sent off?
  9. Starting to make some progress. Engine is hung and the mechanic is starting to do all the accessory installation and control hookups. I was there getting ready to install the new CiES senders and they are weird! So the bolt pattern means that the senders would be mounted upside down, or at least the stickers on the senders will be upside down. Who else has done the CiES installation? Are yours installed upside down?
  10. I have a 75 E model that I'm replacing with CiES senders this next week. Can't speak to how well they work. Replacing them because the gauges didn't work right and I'm putting in an engine monitor. Not sure if it was wiring, senders, or gauges.
  11. Yep. I had the identifier wrong. That's the one. That's the short field landing practice destination airport for this area. I've seen a pilatus go in and out of there!
  12. Is that 26A along I-26? My instructor took me up there during my private training to get some "experience" on short fields.
  13. Funny that you say that. Just north of me is a major equestrian center. When they do major horse shows, there will be 747s shows up at GSP that are used as horse stables so the middle eastern princes can bring and show their horses.
  14. There are only 4 dreamlifters. They are all owned by Boeing and operated by Atlas Air for Boeing. They have never been sold to a customer. Boeing 747 Dreamlifter 4 — Boeing owned in CMI service https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlas_Air What I'm curious about is are they discontinuing the 747 totally? Or just as an airliner? They did just do a big investment on the -800 series of the 747 a while back to take advantages of design improvements developed on the 787. Seems awfully soon to be eliminating it to me after that kind of investment. But if the orders aren't there, that would explain it. Follows suit with the rest of the industry. Airbus is discontinuing the A380 too. There just isn't much demand for super massive airliners when smaller craft like the 777 do it far for efficiently and don't need massive runways. It is more cost effective to buy a few 777s or A350s than a Single 747 or A380. Plus they can operate out of far more airports.
  15. I had heard they were discontinuing it for passenger services, but keeping it on for cargo service. Has that changed? I mean its original design was specifically for cargo service. The hump exists so that the cargo hold is uninterrupted by that pesky cockpit. When they marketed it to the commercial passenger market, that's why they came up with piano bars and stuff. They had an upper deck that they weren't real sure what to do with it.
