    M20 F cockpit fuel drain.

    I was reading through some recent threads about the cockpit fuel drain this week and there were viewpoints shared for and against utilizing the fuel drain next to the fuel selector in the cabin. I filled my tanks today and sumped each tank and used the cockpit drain pull as the plane has been sitting for a few weeks. I later noticed a slight and slow dripping outside my hangar coming from the fuel sump under the cockpit. The dripping continued throughout the day. After 4 hours of flight time it still continues. Has anyone else experienced this and if so what’s the fix? A new O ring / seal? Thanks in advance for your suggestions. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I went to my hangar tonight and took this photo of my Mooney shining her new PAR 46. Thanks LANCECASPER for your great service and assistance. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    LED Landing Light Recommendations

    So much great information. I was at the hangar today and I didn't measure the diameter but it is a landing light that I also use for Taxi so based on what I am seeing above it might be a Par 46. Is there any difference between the Par 36 and Par 46 besides the diameter? Sorry for the newbie questions but I am in the early stages of the learning curve.

    Thanks. I'll take a look.
  7. Hi everyone. I've got a 67 M20 F. I'd like to upgrade my landing light from the old (burned out) halogen bulb. What does everyone suggest for a bright and long lasting replacement? Cost is a concern but from what I have seen I expect between $300.00 - $600.00... OUCH. Any less expensive solutions and is there a need to involve a mechanic to replace or can it easily be done on my own? Thanks, Michael
  8. Hi everyone. Happy Friday! As you prepare for your weekend flights, I invite you to read through the latest edition of The Mooney Flyer (digital edition). Thanks to Phil Corman for the invitation to contribute this month. I am proud to be associated with this months magazine with an article that I wrote about the recent MooneyMax event in Longview TX. You can find the article on pages 14-15 & 16. Enjoy and safe flying! THE MOONEY FLYER - NOVEMBER EDITION

    Honestly, how bad is this?

    Doubling down on my post above. DMax is the call. He Re- Skinned and painted to match mine and the plane fly’s like it’s right out of the factory. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I’d send pics to LASAR or Don Maxwell in Longview TX. They can give you solid advice as to the next steps. During the pre buy on my plane Don noticed substantial issues with my flight controls after they were re-skinned by the seller after hail damage. He replaced both ailerons and flaps and repainted to match. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thanks for the invite and the kind words. Sadly, I’m heading home this morning back to LA. It was a great time this week and if you are ever on the West Coast let me know. Enjoy the museum. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
