  1. Yes this is a legal thing to do, just get yourself a few male and female D sub connectors and do a one to one harness... That being said since you are dealing with temperature probes i would contact JPI and get their opinion on it, specially on what type of wire to use. You might have to get chromel alumel wire for the extension except for power and grounds.. The note below is from the installation manual. NOTE: Unlike most other EGT & CHT installations the probe wire length is not critical and should be trimmed to any length as required for a clean installation. Do not extend the thermocouple wire with copper wire. Hope this is helps. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  3. Congratulations!!! That is fantastic news... I’m base at the SW ramp as well.. Im not sure of hanger big enough to fit two airplane i know they have some big ones but it a bit pricy.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Good deal man! Are going to be base at the SE or SW ramp? Anyhow let me know i’ve been looking for people to go flying around with.. Im part of OSFC they have a few airplane. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. By the looks of this diagram it looks likes the oil goes from the sump to the pump, from the pump if the temperature is below 180° F some will flow trough the oil cooler and the other directly to the filter. Onces the temperature raises above 180°F and the vernatherm closes all oil is forced trough the cooler then the filter and finally the engine.. This is my understanding of the system i could be wrong... Hope this helps. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. Hello everyone, Just wondering if there are any Mooney owner in here base at KSFB? I recently move my Mooney to SFB and would like to meet some fellow Mooney owner.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Thank you much sir! This was done old school way, we do have a panel pro at work but it would of taken longer to measure everything and draw it on autoCAD.. I will post pictures of my progress, there’s some hardware i would like to replace now that i’m in there and re prime that section now that it is accessible. Then moving on with installation. Here are some pictures of the making, it took about 4 hours to go from a piece of metal to prime part. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Check with your A&P but i replaced mine with this one https://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/appages/a7401.php?clickkey=4047 if the outer sleeve is good i would pull the cable out from the cockpit and slide the new cable into the existing sleeve. Here’s is the bulkhead clamps as well. https://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/appages/bowdenclamp.php?clickkey=32140 Hopes this helps. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  11. Im going without use hi loks, It a direct replacement for huck bolts. Thank you much for the tip. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I was able to remove the rear huckbolts by very very carefully grinding the head off and then drilling them off.. Also there was a few i could get from the collar side with a low profile angle grinder and lots of patience. The forward once were very easy, the rudder hinge bolt that go trough the H stab structure were easy to remove as well.. I fabricated a new panel out of 2024 T3 .032 already. Thank you much for all the input, im going to prime and replace some rusty hardware in the H-Stab before i put it back together. Paint gun crapped out towards the end. Im going to run some scotch brute on it. Add some more primer and then print it.. This part will probably outlast the rest of the airplane. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Thank you very much for your input, I’m sorry for the late response I’ve been really busy lately. I was able to go to the hanger today and finally remove the vertical stab. I am going to hold off on having you drill out the. I removed the damage skin and I think I can make a new one at work, it looks like a fairly easy piece of sheet metal. Again thank you much for the input. Here’s a better picture of the damage. Glad i found it... Definitely a time consuming project to get to it, but still better than sealing the thanks haha Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Thank you very much sir. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Im interested.. I can measure the gap from rivet to rivet to see if the holes match.. How much would you like for this part? Also did you remove the vertical? Im wondering what would be the easiest way to remove the huck bolts. Thank you Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
