    Richard Bristow Crash

    I saw a report of Richard Bristow who crashed in his RV-6 yesterday at Petaluma. Richard was a longtime Mooney Owner and friend to many of us. Early reports were engine failure on departure. thoughts and prayers, phil

    Hot CHT #2

    Another quick check is to swap CHT sensors and see if that’s the issue.

    Oil Consumption and CamGuard

    I love CamGuard.. It works. My original question is just to see if other IO550 owners have experienced increased OIL CONSumption.

    Turbulence + V = chicken

    Often, forecasted turbulence is not encountered. If I want to get somewhere, as opposed to a fun lunch run, then I will check PIREPS, and make a go/no-go. Moderate turbulence is tiring and annoying. I slow down for moderate, but mostly for my passengers comfort. I found Don Kaye's article on how to mitigate the effects to be very useful. If I get anything more than moderate, I will land.
  7. I did a test on my M20S with IO-550. I was burning a quart every 9 hours using CamGuard. At last oil change, I did not use CamGuard. My consumption has gone down to almost 1/2. Anyone see this type of difference? Is it possibly a red herring?

    Taxing around without any cowling installed

    Just remember that the engine is not getting baffled any longer so I would not run it for very long or at higher power settings than necessary.
