  1. Yes, he's giving me $1,100 as a trade in for the 830. I'm also NOT installing a couple of other gauges I would have needed (Fuel Pressure / Ammeter, and Fuel Level gauges). That saved me a couple thousand. Over all I'm only paying about $2,200 more.

  3. Well, I worked out a deal with the avionics guy! He'll take the EDM830 in trade and install the EDM900! It's a few more $$$, but you guys are right, it'll be worth it.
  4. Thanks! Great help! I was under the impression that the EDM830 (which I've had for over a year) was primary. I'd put in a 900, but an extra $5-6k is over my budget for now, so the manifold/fuel pressure/tach will have to stay. The GFC500 was looked at, and might be installed later, but for now the S-Tek30 is working well and will have to suffice. My G5's and EDM830 will be flush mounted. I'm also having a Garmin GMA 345 audio panel put in. It's so easy to pour lots and lots of money into the panel. LOL And as soon as you've installed it, it's outdated! I would've considered
  5. I'm doing a panel upgrade on my '68 20c, dual G5's, new com panel, etc.. I'm looking for advice about any 'gotchas' that might happen during this build. Is the EDM 830 a primary instrument? Can I remove the manifold / fuel pressure gauge and the prop RPM / Hobbs meter? Any thoughts about keeping the tilt of the left side instrument panel the same or going with a 'flat' panel. Any worries about the panel shock mounts? The current ones don't look like they are original. The new panel is still in the drawing stage so mods can still be added/removed. Any advice is greatly
  6. Empty weight is 1605, and the ARM is 45.71. Only the ELT is mounted in the back as far as I know of, but I've never looked back there. Adding fuel moves the CG back (according to FltPlan.com W&B and my own spreadsheet)
  7. On my '68 C model, I can handle 500 lbs. in the front seats and 50 gals of fuel. That puts it right at the forward limits (checked on Fltplan.com weight and balance as well as my own paperwork), and it still leaves it under GTOW by 155 lbs. As the fuel burns off, the CG moves forward, but so does the limits. I've had well over 400 lbs. in the front seats along with full fuel and some cargo, and she handled quite well. I'm over 220 lbs. and so is a friend I've taken flying, and we had no trouble fitting. As for room, the Mooneys have more shoulder room than most singles in their class. Ge
