  2. Good news is that there are some good planes (it appears) on trade a plane now. Many will need ads-b and other things but look for a bird with good bones: flown regularly and in annual, all ADs complied with. Good luck! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. 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!
  7. We are following maintenance manual. Just curious. Thanks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. 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
  9. ...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
  10. 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
