    Oxygen leak

    When you say you left the valve open overnight and no loss of pressure, I presume you did not have any cannula (mask) hoses plugged in. My best guess would be that there is a leak at the valve where one of the hoses plug into the system. Plug one hose in, but shut off the flow valve. Use soapy water around the connection of the hose. Repeat for the other one(s).
  2. If you are avid, you can send the metal bits off for an analysis. The specific make up of the metal (as I understand it) can often determine where it came from.

    Braking After Landing

    I assume if you find a spongy brake, you would conclude likely air in the line, and you would not do it that way.
  4. Looks like you are in for bearing repacking. Not fun, but it could have been a lot worse.

    Bad Shoulder and Johnson Bar

    Good luck with the surgery and rehab.
  6. It is my understanding that the boost and the primer squirt fuel at a different spot in the induction system. I forget which is which. The amount of fuel is the same and the results are very similar but slightly different. I use high boost for about 5 seconds on all starts except for a start within a very few minutes of shutdown. I then use primer for a varying length of time, depending on temperature. Usually a little longer than indicated in the POH. This works for me. In my limited experience, if the Continental doesn't want to start, it needs more fuel.

    Braking After Landing

    When you say "the braking is worse", do you mean it doesn't slow down much? The brakes lock up and skid the tire? or what. If they lock and skid, it may be not all the weight is one the gear yet (still generating lift), or the fluid is gummed up. If the brakes feel good (not spongy), but doesn't slow down much, it may just be a Mooney.
  8. Congratulations Don. Well deserved.

    Don't get confused. DMax is Don, the father and PMax is Paul, the son. Both good guys and Mooney gurus.

    Below about 8, the J is a tad better. Eight to 12, about equal. Over 12, the turbo shines.

    Tank Reseal ... best options

    Houston Tank Specialists can patch or reseal.

    That's tough Larry. Advice? First, don't panic. It may well be that your orthopod guy can get you going such, that with the help of these guys who know, you will be able to adapt and do fine. But definitely, call Don Maxwell as well. He will be knowledgeable about converting to electric, it that should turn out to be necessary. It would not surprise me if the conversion could be done with a high percentage of used and available parts. Let us know what you learn about the feasibility of converting. Other folks may be very interested.
  13. Yes, they are expensive. The people who make them do not have an overhaul procedure in place, thus no one can rebuild them. If you want a fully functioning one, I will sell you my spare for about half of what the new ones cost.

    Any tricks to pulling oil screen on IO-360?

    What did those turn out to be?
