  1. Firm numbers

    There are very few turbo J models out there, much less for sale at any given time. Performance should be like a 231 but with a bit less fuel burn if it has an M20 Turbonormalizer kit. If it has a Turbo Bullet kit it should burn fuel like a 231. Both are unsupported/out of production. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk
  2. Keep an eye on eBay and classified sections here and Beechtalk. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk
  3. Forgot to specify that the steel is magnetic, not stainless, so it could be possible. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk
  4. Mooneys have a structural steel cage that surrounds the cabin (like a roll cage in a race car) as well as tubular steel landing gear components, and a steel crankshaft and other parts in the engine. I'm not familiar with search technology, but perhaps with that info you can get an answer from an expert. It sounds like a daunting task. I'm sorry for your loss. Not having closure is awful.

  5. Economic ANR solution

    Consider the QT Halo or a used Lightspeed. Your hearing is too important! Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk

    Still very happy with mine on my J. Would do it again. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk

    Should be the same. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk
  8. Weighed my Naked Mooney Today

    Your service manual has a procedure for weighing the plane. You'll need an IA to sign it off, too. The procedure involves leveling the plane, and maybe with empty tanks, full oil, etc. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk
  9. Yoke upgrade

    I'm sure you can buy current production yokes new from Mooney thru a service center, but you'll probably faint over the price. Best to scrounge the internet looking for planes getting parted out. Years ago I sold some 201 times and shafts for $750/set. Just one data point... Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk
  10. Looking to Buy Mooney M20F or J

    Someone posted a link on the FB group for a GSA Auction '77 J. Looks like an IRS seizure in SE TX. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk
  11. That is the magnetometer, which would replace the King KMT112, likely in your left wing. You'll need it. You might get lucky and it could drop-in the same location,, perhaps with a connector swap. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk
  12. The G5 + GAD29B would replace your entire KCS55 system and GPSS module, so you'd lose the mechanical gyros and some extra weight. GPSS is included in the G5 box natively, so no need for the add-on module. If you have a good backup, you could likely remove your vacuum system too. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk
  13. Not Bob, but his autopilot needs the outputs from his vacuum AI. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk
  14. @MooneyBob how many hours were billed for installation, and did the shop say anything about ease or difficulty? Any idea if they had done one before? Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk
  15. Because they want you to buy their autopilot, in addition to the G5's. If it could fully run the old stuff, then you would be much less inclined to upgrade! Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk
