    preciseflight speed brakes

    I love my speed brakes. When I first bought my Mooney last Spring, the left speed brake failed to deploy, and after reading these forums, I found a suggestion to simply open and close it with my fingers and try it again. Sure enough, that worked. I would suggest trying that! Save you a bundle!
  2. We are following maintenance manual. Just curious. Thanks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I’ve been looking through my 1965 M20C POH and service manual and have found no reference to any way to bleed flaps without use of pressure pot, no reference to any “self bleeding.” Can anyone point me in right direction? I’ve read most threads on subject, seen a variety of methods ranging from traditional to what appeared to be simple yet genius. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    ...of course I’m partial to the old paint jobs. I like yours! I like the old leather-looking seats too. Rawhide! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Opinions on this M20F

    I bought my 1965 M20C from SkyWagons, back in March. I would be happy to share details on the phone if you like. Just PM me. I will say that my plane has been great, and that Mark at Skywagons was honest, courteous, and a very nice guy. I would have no problems buying another plane from him. He had no issues with me taking my plane to Top Gun (he actually flew it over for me no charge). I think it’s important to remember that aircraft brokers buy planes (yours looks familiar) that are on open market, and flip them. They also sell people’s planes for them for a markup. SkyWagons moves a good amount of metal and in my case I am very happy with the plane they showed me and sold me. Mark treated me and my family right and we have a great bird we are flying. I recommend him highly. I know everyone has different experiences- just my two cents. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. That’s a beautiful plane! I like the panel too! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Yes, shoulder harnesses are installed! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Pretty dated interior! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. It’s amazing how good she looks in pictures! When you get up to her, it’s a different story. There are quite a few patches and some surface corrosion. Still, a hangar does wonders. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Yes you’re right, black might be a better choice than the brown. My kids fee the same way! I’ll ask the boss what she thinks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. That’s amazing Jim! I actually like it! So what’s it look like now? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. This Mooney came from Southern California and lived in Santa Monica, Oxnard and Camarillo before I snatched it and took it here to Ohio. It’s interesting yours had same color! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
