    True airspeed not what book says

    Does your car meet or exceed the estimated gas mileage as advertised by the dealer? I suspect a little sizzle in the salesmanship, but I am happy with my E. Need more speed? Just descend more.

    Grounded... Repair Advice?

    Now that the dust has settled and a fix is more than likely in place, I respectfully “creep” this thread towards prevention. No doubt, Mr. Huddleston, you are beating yourself up over this, most pilot are very hard on themselves when this type of incident happens. Please consider getting the coaching, training, etc. to evaluate the decission making and performance that led to this event. In hindsight, all accidents are preventable, but it is the ability to “see” into the future the outcome of our present decisions that keeps us safe. Thankfully this all appears fixable. Now, get back on that horse, safely. (from a safety manager, cfi,cfii, mei, atp, 5 type ratings, a&p,ia, and M20E owner)

    My Engine Heater

    Here is my cheap and easy pre heater, effective, but takes awhile. Hdw store for about $25.
  5. Thanks all, looks like I could upgrade this to a new model as a minor alteration.
  6. Mine is a ‘66 M20E and want to remove it, I will keep digging and let you know if I find this stc.
  7. Hello, I heard there is an stc available to remove the cooling shroud (aka Doghouse) that covers the top of the engine on an M20E. Does anyone have experience with this, and is it worth it? From a maintenance perspective, it sure is annoying to have to remove this shroud every time I want to work on the engine. My cylinder temps run on the cool side anyway. Thanks for any info regarding this.
  8. I like “Slick Mist” by Lucas Oil, the pump sprayer really saturates the windscreen, polishes clean. Pretty cheap, because it doesn’t say anything about using it on airplanes. amazon, wallmart, etc.
  9. I’ll be there with 2 kids, Culver this year, Mooney next year. Looking fwd to it.

    The first step in the resurrection of my ‘66 E was getting it home...

    ECI for the prop hub

    bought a new b hub, hence the a is for sale, probably fine, but while i was doing the overhaul, i wanted to be done with the ad.

    ECI for the prop hub

    I just swapped an “A” hub for a “B” hub, The “A” appears servicable, and I am open to offers if someone is interested in it and wants to deal with the AD.

    20C sitting a while

    I say buy it right, fix it up, enjoy the process, expect it to take time and money, and don’t over analize it. I just got my ‘66 M20E home. Before I bought it, the last annual was 2001, I paid a fair price, spent some $, some effort, and have a great Mooney quick build kit. It will still be cheaper than an RV, or a new Mooney. Plus you will know it better, and meet tons of good people along the way. You are on the right track, if you like it, it suits your mission, you can afford it, and aren’t ignoring reality, do it. Good luck.
  14. 1940 Culver Cadet,
  15. yes, I did the restoration, the simple solutions to complex problems is one reason I was hooked on the Culver.  Picture is of gear bracket, wing upside down, didn’t want to hijack the other thread 50ADC429-EF5F-4F4A-9305-F6D7F8B695FA.thumb.jpeg.e0191c137247fd0b871db8c49e8d99b9.jpegthread...
