  1. Yeah, the Lord mounts are insanely priced. The McMaster brass direct replacement that just requires a little trimming is under $3. I'm trying to decide if I want to switch to the male female setup to lose the acorn nuts or even possibly go hard mounted with no gyros.
  2. Thanks, that makes a lot of sense. Gives me some more to think about!
  3. Hey PTK, any idea of the screw length you used? I want to make sure it's long enough to reach the min thread depth but no so long that I can't snug it up to the panel. I'm thinking about using your technique to secure the panel. any idea if this McMaster mount is the Lord equivalent? https://www.mcmaster.com/93945K108/ Also, I'm about to lose my last gyro instrument. Anyone have any parts solutions for hard mounting instead of shock mounting? I'm not really sure which way to go. My panel on the right side, which I believe is hard mounted, has significantly less visible vibration co
  4. Yeah. It seems they pick up the timing in 2 different spots but are powered off the alternator. So as a backup you need another alternator or battery backup. Not ideal from a weight standpoint. I am removing a standby vac soon so I guess it’s something to consider when it’s time to overhaul the Mag.
  5. Great to hear there is a real forward looking solution.
  6. Are you down there? Can you confirm it's all approved? Any idea of details? If it's 2 systems I'm curious about weight etc. Thanks
  7. Any news on this with the opening of SunNFun?
  8. Hey all, just wanted to pass on my experience at Paragon Aircraft Services at KCDW this week. I have been looking for a data driven, knowledgeable shop after some less than stellar experiences elsewhere to deal with some troubleshooting and small fixes to my ‘78 J. Steve at Paragon was ultra-responsive, smart, and friendly. He was able to fit me in for an Engine monitor upgrade, took care of SB 388C after reviewing engine monitor data, plus a few other lingering issues. They seemed well versed on the Mooney and gave daily email updates on the progress of the work. I’ve found that at
  9. Looks like Spruce only sells the full kit (more $) and I can get the individual part directly via McFarlane.
  10. Yup. Definitely plastic. It’s wrapped around a vacuum pump for cooling apparently.
  11. SOLVED thanks to user: Freemasm https://www.mcfarlaneaviation.com/products/category/vacuum-pump-cooling/
  12. Hey all, I found this cooling ring cracked and have been looking through the parts manual and LASARs website to try and figure out where I might be able to find a replacement. Ijust haven't found it yet. Anyone have an idea of where I can find one of these? Thanks!!!
  13. SOLD Hey all, I just pulled my FS450 for an 830 upgrade and am looking to send it on to someone else. It’s the unit only as I am using the transducer in my new setup. It’s in great shape and working perfectly when removed. $200 OBO -Matt
  14. Reviving an old thread, but does anyone have a source for all-weather mats? Not a huge fan of carpet as a floor mat. I find they tend to slide around and bunch up by the rudder pedals. I have these in my car and absolutely love them https://evannex.com/products/tesla-model-s-all-weather-floor-mats. They are trimmable and I'm tempted to buy the trunk mat and cut it to fit. The flammability issue is there and I don't have the data sheet. Anyone know if something like this exists in the aviation world?
