  1. Congrats, Seth! Great job squeezing it in between family, work and Summit prep!
  2. But he can install the new AP and sell his still-functional Brittain parts to his CB brethren whose upgrade funds are committed elsewhere at the moment!
  3. Enjoy the bumblebee! Sorry about your coming fuel bills . . . . .

    Seat Rollers

    I didn't swap mine, they continue to work just fine. The PITA was moving stuff in the seat back pockets, so I could reach the manuals in flight.

    QUESTION: M20E Vs M20F

    I was burning 9 gph in cruise, traveling with my wife, not running wide open on a speed run. P.S.--gave an F pilot a ride to pick up his plane. Well over an hour later, I was still close enough to watch his pattern entry into downwind; then the ridgeline blocked him. That was before my doghouse resurrection and carb heat rebuild gave me an additional 8-10 mph.

    Mooney short body interior

    Alan, when yiu get the ceiling panels out, take a picture of the vent system between the back seat and front seat vents. I may want something up there, all isn't right with mine and I don't have pictures of the wreckage. Thanks!

    QUESTION: M20E Vs M20F

    That's the same as my C, which would also be higher without that heavy Hartzell 3-blade on the nose. But I can load up full fuel, add people / baggage to 970 and fly for 5-1/2 hours (theoretically); my longest leg so far is 4:45, landing with 12 gallons = another 1:20 to completely kill both legs . . . . It's all how you slice it.

    Quiet Technologies

    Last time I needed anything, I called them. It was outside their hours, i was going to leave a message, but the good Doctor answered the phone and took care of me. Suggest placing a phone call in the morning. Hope you get your troubles resolved quickly and painlessly.

    Let's talk about tires...

    Yep, that's how it went for me. She lasted 15-20 minutes, not quite long enough to get on the ground with a straight-in while someone waited at the hold short.

    BTDT, my wife's cousin had to wash her tshirt in the FBO, and i bought a new microphone cover. Didn't have to scrub inside the plane, though. The dangers of a zoom lens on a bumpy afternoon!

    Seat Rollers

    Do the right seat first. The left side of the left seat will hit the outside wall when sliding forward, and can be difficult; the right seat has that nice door opening to slide into. Then you have room to push on the left seat, and you will need to push!

    Whereabouts in West-by-God, Virginny? That's where I got my PPL, IA and Mooney.

    10 Hrs. Dual? Really?

    I did notice that the F lands differently than my C. Not better or worse, just different. While I don't mind receiving instruction, if you can stretch a duel out frim a few minutes to 10 hours, you're both doing something wrong . . .

    Seat tracks

    Should be retainers at the back of the rails. Remove them, slide the rear rollers off the rail, lift seat and slide forward until the front rollers come off. Then lift the seat out.
