  1. This happened with my 530 and I did what @N201MKTurbo said above and it fixed the issue.
  2. I have run the tank dry before on my C model per the POH (if that is what you want to call the pamphlet that came with my airplane). It was and is a non event in my airplane. Not even a hiccup. Just did it this past weekend to completely drain a tank that needed the fuel drain replaced. On my C model there was plenty of time between a drop in fuel pressure and engine stoppage and never really got to that point. I do have a friend who had an A model that when he did this it shocked him how quickly the engine quit with no real time to get prepared. So I think that you will find something different between airplanes even with the same engine and fuel delivery setup.
  3. The audio is here. The controller told the Southwest to line up and wait. This one may be on the controller…but also if it is accurate that the Southwest guy was taxiing as slow as the animation suggests then that could have contributed as well.
  4. My avionics shop uses three different places. airdallas.com, rudyaircraftinstruments.com, fieldtech (ftav.com) Field Tech is at Meacham (KFTW). They don't use them as often because they said that even if they can't fix it they charge you quite a bit. Rudy Instruments is in Arkansas and they are a small Mom and Pop shop. Air Dallas is big, in Lewisville, Texas and currently where my Airspeed Indicator is. They told me they sent one in there in November and just got it back. But they are apparently very good and that is why they use them.
  5. Although I do not have an answer to your question, VOR's are not being completely discontinued. The FAA is developing the MON with select VOR's remaining as back up if GPS outages occur. They would allow for station to station navigation to continue as a back up. So it may be wise to have the ability to use this back up if ever needed.
  6. I made one out of some PVC laying around as well. It works great even if you are big or tiny, just makes it easy.
  7. The avionics shop that I use in Fort Worth sent one off for me. I will contact them when they open this morning and find out who they use. However, just FYI, the backlog has been something else. Going on 3 months and still waiting to get my airspeed indicator back. Fortunately, it is a back up and not the one installed in my airplane so I am still flying....
  8. This guy does a lot of aircraft detailing and he uses ceramic coating. He does not really get into the chemistry of it but he does show some great results. Search Youtube for Aviana Aircraft Detailing.
  9. Garmin has stopped with the 1962 C model as the earliest supported model.
  10. It was Dave Morris who owned this airplane, not Dan Morris, just FYI. I do not think he installed it. I believe he purchased the airplane already outfitted with the Accu-Flite but he does lurk on Mooneyspace so he may be able to chime in. The issue with any Brittain product is availability. They are scarce. You would probably have to spend many months to years cobbling together a system. The company is of course not making them any more either.
  11. @pagirard I feel your pain. When I overhauled my panel, removed the vacuum system, including a mountain of wiring that had collected behind my panel over the years that lead to nowhere, etc...etc...etc... I also had a decrease in my useful load. The scales were calibrated and certified, etc... I have not poured through the books to see if there were any errors on previous W&B sheets that would make this any less drastic. However, a glance at the AFM for my airplane shows a W&B sheet done by the factory that was full of errors. I guess the slide ruler or the ENIAC that they used back then were not calibrated.
  12. Mine has velcro. I do not know what actual Brand velcro it is but I wish I did (put in before I owned the airplane). It is about 20 years old or so and is still sticking just fine even in the Texas heat but the velcro grips better than any velcro product I have ever used. It takes quite a bit of strength to get the carpet out.

  14. I thought the Rockwell Commander 112/114/115 had wing life limits as well so a quick search showed that they do. Page 11 of the following FAQ page. Commander Aircraft FAQ
