  1. Gann did the engine on my B55. I’m a very satisfied customer. He also can make your hoses in house.
  2. I would go with the F but I’m biased. Get an annual from a reputable shop if the prepurchase inspection goes well. Even with that it’s possible to get burned so have some oh shit money left over when you buy. Enjoy it!
  3. I think someone told me continental cranks only had one turning in them. I don’t know if that’s true or not. Any of you know? IE only one oversized bearing offered.
  4. Not to be a jerk but it looks like the oil return line has been rubbing on the thing that supports the baffling front to back. I had the same issue with my return line.
  5. Here is a photo of the one I copied. This picture is on the internet if you search Mooney nose gear tool.
  6. I thought the guy who owned Dawley retired. They did great work for a reasonable price. I’m sure the new shop will be glad to charge you more.
  7. I think it’s Sabermech that came up with the design. If I’m not mistaken he had a write up on what to do with measurements. I don’t think it would be expensive to have a welder make one. I have a mig welder for car work and made my own. I’m definitely not skilled but it did the job.
  8. I thought the 2 blade from a J wouldn’t work on the motor in the F. I think the F doesn’t have a counterweight on the crank.
  9. That’s the one I made. I also read one guy that used the strap that you crank down. If you don’t have a welder it may be worth a try.
  10. It was on a IO-470L. I used to have a B55. I was able to pull the pump without too much trouble. When I had the motor overhauled they had to replace the pump housing because of how chewed up the old one was.
  11. I was facing the same issue with a continental. I talked to a rebuilder about it and he said I could do it on the cheap and get some life out of the engine but before I do that I should look at the inside of the oil pump. When I did that I could see scratches from where all those little bits were flying around inside the motor. I went with a field overhaul and it ran great. I slept better at night too. It sucks at the time of payment but then it’s done.
  12. I lost my medical for a year. I feel for you.
  13. I have an F. The weight of the plane was enough for the main gear on mine. Have a friend rock the wing if needed. I made a tool for the nose. Google will come up with a picture of it. I read one guy that said a tie down strap with the crank on it will work on it too. I can believe it.
