  1. So, we decided to have our cracked spinner repaired by AeroSupport. They strip the spinner before repair and it will return to us as bare aluminum. Spinner was originally white and we will return it to it’s former color. Does anybody know where I might go to get it painted and what paint is best for spinners We are located in the San Francisco area. A
  2. RH Galyen, Thanks. I did send them a picture of the crack, but haven’t heard back. I’ll try again. Al
  3. Guillaume, That is awesome. Thanks. Exactly what happened to our spinner.
  4. Thank you everybody for responding. Status update: Loewen’s doesn’t have the part. I sent pictures of the cracked spinner to AeroSupport, inquiring about whether it’s repairable, but they haven’t gotten back to me. We found a spinner from a 1977 M20J 201 (our’s is a 1985), which fits perfectly except the holes along the U-shaped prop blade cutouts do not line up. So, I guess we’re still looking for the perfect replacement. The prop is the standard McCauley for that year (#82D34Cbl4/PODHB-16E or -16EP*). If anybody has a potential replacement and has pix, I can tell by sight whether those cutout holes would line up or not. KS Mooniac - I would think we’d be happy to sell our cracked spinner. Alan Fox - I’m not certain what fair price is for these, but any reasonable price would be fine.
  5. Hi everybody, I am getting somewhat desperate: Our M20J 201 spinner has developed a fatal crack (fatal for the spinner, not me). Anyway, I am having a great deal of difficulty locating a replacement spinner at a reasonable price. Does anybody have any suggestions? Al

    Nope. Replaced a failed Bendix, which failed at worst possible time (plane at small airfield, without MX or FBO). Now has a new Sky-Tec. Works fine.

    Thanks everyone. Sorry about the dramatic title. We got it covered. JD from Western Oregon Flying Services just happened to have the correct Sky-Tec starter and flew down from Rosenberg to Cottage Grove and installed it today (Saturday). Absolutely incredible customer service!

    Advanced didn’t have the part, plus they’re 2 hrs away by car. Western Oregon Flying Services, in Roseberg, not only has the part, but they’re will to fly down to Cottage Grove and do the install! Super nice!

    Not yet. Still looking. My partner is not mechanically inclined and she’s up there on business, so not much leisure time.

    Help!

    Does anybody know of an A&P in the Eugene, Ore area that can replace our M20J starter motor? My partner is stranded at Cottage Grove (61S) unable to get the plane back to SQL.
