  1. Tips and Tricks

    Judging by the number of views, I think you have a point!
  2. Rajay turbo

    Any chance of getting a digital copy of the Rayjay Manual?
  3. Effect of Carb Heat?

    Actually, somebody on this site already has a turbo for sale, you should look him up if you want one. As for a manual, everything you need to know is placarded on the panel and I have all the installation drawings and paperwork, so if an over zealous inspector asks, I have answers, but thanks for the tip!
  4. Effect of Carb Heat?

    Nice reply, Cliffy, thanks very much. That’s what I expected, same as every other plane I have flown, so I wanted to confirm. It’s back in the shop. The plenum between the filter and the carb looked pretty rough so I suspect that was the problem. The turbo was an add on and I don’t think I have a manual for it. Thanks again!
  5. Effect of Carb Heat?

    Ok, thanks guys.
  6. Effect of Carb Heat?

    On my 0-360 A1D Rayjay turbo powered constant speed prop M20B I get zero effect on idle (or any) RPM when applying carb heat on the ground. Is that normal? Sorry I didn’t notice if there was an effect on manifold pressure.. it threw me to not see any effect on rpm.
  7. M20B Weight And Balance Manual

    FltPlan.com just posted a weight and balance template for the M20B, it’s awesome! Just amend the basic weight and arm and it will work for you. Fltplan.com is a free moving map/flight planning app. Works slick.
  8. M20B Weight And Balance Manual

    Thanks but no worries guys, the weird over weight issue has been identified and rectified. I have a great Engineer ensuring the final weight and balance is accurate and up to date. She is actually 1660.8lbs with a moment arm of 45.98”. A little heavier than normal but it has that turbo kit and old heavy radios. It balanced out nice with a light weight starter and alternator and the battery moved to the back. So we’re good! Thanks for all the help!
  9. M20B Weight And Balance Manual

    I understand, thanks, and fly safe!
  10. M20B Weight And Balance Manual

    Thanks, that helps, and I’m sure that documentarion is with the plane, but I haven’t picked it up yet. PPI/annual/maintenance is still in ptogress.
  11. M20B Weight And Balance Manual

    Apparently the B Model didn’t have that info in the Flight/Operators Manual nor the Maintenance Manual, so you have to take it off your own weight and balance worksheet and equipment list which has moment arm data. Someone said the C Model arm data sould be identical, I have no way to confirm that, but if it is, Fltplan.com has the C Model in their weight and balance database, difference being the max fuel load and gtoss weight limits are higher. So use at yor own risk.

    1961 was even worse for documentation, it would appear!
  13. M20B Weight And Balance Manual

    I will try, but since I didn’t get any links to a weght and balance manual I tried a different thread. In the end, I think I finally got the answer I needed.. Sorry for the inconvenience that may have caused.
  14. I’m trying to get Fltplan.com to add a Weight And Balance template for the M20B but I need a weight and balance manual showing all the station arms and dimensions. interestingly,, neither the M20B Operating nor Maintenance Manuals seem to discuss weight and balance. Anyone, anyone?
