    1962 m20c rotating beacon

    How about 75? It’s likely to only become a paperweight on my desk

    Anyone what the service life of these old rotating beacons are? I would predict at least 500 hrs.

    1962 m20c rotating beacon

    Thanks and I’m sure your right, gonna go with the 10 rpm and see how it works, yes will eventually get the strobe replacement unless this thing ends up working ok. Thanks for the comment!

    1962 m20c rotating beacon

    Does anyone know what the rpm should be for the geared rotating beacon? The reduction is 12 to 1, so thinking a 500 rpm motor will give me about 40 rpm. A 125 rpm motor will yield about 10 rpm, is that too slow? Any info is much appreciated. Joe
  6. I have a Garwin cluster out of my 1962 M20 C, all works fine except for r fuel is intermittent at times. It came from Air parts of Lockhaven.

    Fuel selector drain

    Thank you, I will try the drain probe in the metal tube, I know about laying on my back for nose wheel gascolator, it’s not fun, but must be done every preflight imo
  8. I have a 1962 m20c, maintenance manual says there’s a gascolator under the fuel tank selector, looking under I can see the drain tube, but how do you drain it? Manual says there’s a ring by selector that should be pulled to drain on each position, but there is no ring. Should I try to lift the selector itself? Thanks in advance for any info

    Grease zerk

    I broke 2 grease zerks on main landing gear on 1962 m20c. Anyone have any ideas on how to replace and the thread size of Zerk? Looks like a very small ez out is needed.

    Fuel Gages

    Thanks Clarence, Tried a new sending unit and that was not the problem. These dont appear to me to be very good gages even when new, you know,, 1960's technology

    Fuel Gages

    I have a bad right fuel gage, it barely moves and shows empty with full tank. Left gage seems to be ok. Both fuel gages are part of the Garwin 6 gage cluster, anyone have any ideas where I can get replacement fuel gages? I've heard of a place in PA.,, Air parts of Lockhaven. Was gonna contact them tomorrow. Any advice would be appreciated
