  1. The item nomenclature is Sheath, Seat Belt, Black. P/N 500812-35 for the one 10.75" long and 500812-25 for the sheath that is 10.25 inches long. I used the -35 and did not find them to be too long. They could always be shortened to accommodate a different seat profile.
  2. I am pretty sure it is an Amsafe product but will have to check to be sure.
  3. I installed these in all four positions on my two front seats. Helps keep the belts and buckles out of the J bar when no one is the the passengers seat. We use these in the helicopters to keep the belts out of the collective controls.
  4. As a new C model owner and going over the aircraft closely I found that I had several loose screws on the nose gear door hinges. Closer examination revealed that there were what appeared to be 3 different sizes of sheet metal screws holding the hinges to the airframe. I now have this as a post flight inspection to look for loose screws on the nose gear door hinges till I can get in there and replace the clips. It does seem strange to me that Mooney used machine screws with nut plates on the belly panels and then used sheet metal screws with clips to retain a hinge in a high vibration area. Has anyone gone in this area a replaced the sheet metal clips with nut plates?
  5. Don, I believe that the ASOD sale is this Saturday the 13th. http://www.asod.com/ Warren
  6. I have a 68 C model with bladders and CiES sending units. I had the same issue with one tank (L/H) showing full all the time. I removed the side panel (after troubleshooting with meter) and found the sending wire loose on the sending unit.
  7. New owner so have some compassion. I purchased a 1968 M20C that had been sitting for some time. After getting it flying one of the fuel gauges shows full all the time (which was how the plane had been stored for an extended period of time ). The question is has anyone seen these indicators start working after being put back into service after an extended period of storage? Described on this forum was a good description of how the indicator works with the wiper across a small coil and I was wondering if the assembly just needs to be moved around to come back to life. The airplane has the O&N bladders. Thanks Old Chub
  8. A quote from one of our customers...." Good maintenance aint cheap and cheap maintenance aint good".
  9. Jetdriven, Thanks for the photos. as they say a picture can describe a thousand words. I will start working on a like bracket for the flux valve (not to be confused with the flux capacitor) Old Chub
  10. Thanks to all that replied. Great information. Jet Drive = I am installing the same thing. A Sandel 3308 Greg Ellis = I am at Hicks Airport. Just move over from GPM last week. My Cessna 120 is also there at Hicks.
  11. I understand the gyro is mounted on the avionics shelf in the back but were is the flux valve. This item is approx 3 to 4 inches in diameter and appox 3 inches tall with a rounded cover..
  12. New Member here and this is my first time using so here goes. When installing a remote compass for the HSI in a pre J model Mooney where do installers usually mount the flux valve (Magnetic Azimuth Transmitter) Honeywell KMT 112? Thanks Old Chub
