  1. You are in a tie with @EricJ who posted one earlier in this thread.
  2. AircraftSpruce.com sells one of these. I have not used it because it is damn pricey for a glorified box cutter with an attachment to it but they are available. Tempest AA471 Oil Filter Media Cutter | Aircraft Spruce
  3. I have a 63 C model with an O-360-A1D. What is the lubricant of choice for the slip joint between the exhaust down tube and the rest of the exhaust? I have heard people use mouse milk but McFarlane makes their DAM exhaust lube as well. Is there a preferred lube for this? Thank you.
  4. @Centeno You may try here. 200HP INTAKE DUCT M20 E&F - 600115-005 — LASAR They say they have it but it may not be in stock but they may be able to help you get one.
  5. You can buy seat belt extenders on Amazon and other sites. It just depends on the type of attachments you have. There are different types. I have one from a company that was called Free The Flyer but they are apparently no longer in business. I couldn't find them online.
  6. When I took the cylinder back, the shop did a quick measurement and as I said earlier, the bore was at its maximum limit. They called me later after actually doing close inspection and the bore was also out of round.
  7. What was missed is the fact that the number one cylinder was pooled with oil and both upper and lower spark plugs were wet. I showed photos earlier.
  8. That’s what I would have suspected but he didn’t say. I should have asked but I was just kind of happy to possibly find a solutIon. I’ll ask. Though my EDM 900 never showed any issues of overheating or any other problems.
  9. An update on my cylinder. I dropped it off at the overhaul shop this morning. It is nice that they are only an hour away by car and I saved the shipping. Anywho, while I was there the mechanic measured the cylinder bore and it was at its limits. Also the rings were bad. Visually they were okay. But he took one and twisted it expecting it to break and it never did. Just kept twisting on itself. I was told that they eventually should snap but mine never did. So, they are going to have a cylinder ready for me next week. Hopefully I can put this to rest and get back in the air just in time for my annual in January.
  10. I don't know if this helps you at all, but this is my panel in my 63 C model with a 530W, GNC355 and GFC500 all in the same column and has a small amount of wiggle room at the top. It may give you an idea of the dimensions you need to do what you want.
  11. I cannot make out any cross hatching. I would have to check the logs to get you info on time in service, etc…. I can check tomorrow.
