  1. I trained in a Cessna 152 as a 36-year-old. After my PPL I had a deal to fly that Cessna for another 50 hours. I then put a few hours on a piper archer because I always liked the low wing. At about 100 hours I was looking for my own airplane. At first I thought that the logical way to go would be with a paper arrow. But with a bit of research I soon realized that a Mooney was the airplane for me. I bought a J and received 10 hours of dual to satisfy my insurance provider. I put about 600 hours on it in the six years that I owned it. Other things got in the way and I left flying for almost 18 years. I got back into it about three years ago and have now owned another J for almost exactly one year. You should have no problem transitioning to a Mooney. GO FOR IT! Peter
  2. Thanks Brian. That is basically what mine looks like. I thought that there might be a cover for that whole thing so that the red release lever did not get knocked around accidentally. Peter
  3. The aircraft has 2800 hours total. I believe the cables are original. I have had the airplane for almost one year. It turns out that as the weather got colder, the cables got stiffer. The weather has now warmed up and the cables are much easier to operate. My annual is coming up in just over a month, and we will take a close look at the cables then. Probably try to lubricate them and then see what happens. Thanks for all the good info .
  4. I am having an issue with a stiff throttle and prop control cables on ‘93 J. What was the successful procedure with the tri-Flo?
  5. I WOULD like to know how it actually works.
  6. If I had to use the emergency gear extention in flight, I’m not sure if I would want to have to find a screwdriver to remove some screws before I could use it.
  7. My ‘93 J came without an emergency gear extension cover. I would like to know how it is secured in place. Does it just snap in place over the handle? Does anyone have a photo handy of what it looks like when in place? What are the pros and cons of having it replaced? I am trying to decide if I want or need it. Peter
  8. On my 93 J the transducer is mounted with the wires up with a 45-deg elbow at the inlet. I would not consider 45 degrees to be a sharp bend. Also, I cleaned and back flushed the transducer with brake fluid, and it has not acted up since.
  9. I am hoping to replace the glass
  10. The glass face plate on the vac gauge in my 93 MSE is cracked. Any body know how to remove it for replacement?
  11. I had the same experience. It was intermittent for a couple of weeks. I checked all connections and ground. Finally I removed the transducer and soaked and cleaned it with carburetor cleaner as per suggestion on this site. . I gently washed some carburetor fluid backwards through the transducer. It has been working flawlessly since then.
  12. Thank you all for your input. Factory tack was fairly accurate at 2000 RPM. I will check it at high RPM and go from there.
  13. Data as of March 2018 governor is a MCCAULEY C290D5G/T17
  14. I don’t hear or feel it increasing but I do notice when I bring it back down.. This is the information on the prop. Is that what you were looking for?
