  1. Bill Wheat knew everything from the early days on.... And wouldn’t mind sharing the experience with people maintaining their own Mooneys... I got to speak with Bill twice in the early 2000s... talking POHs and weep holes... He is missed. Best regards, -a-
  2. Wow, Abe! I saw the other post selling the caps... and was thinking the girl in your avatar picture must have grown a bit since that pic was taken... Then I saw the new pics... they have grown quite a bit! I spun the odd pic around... Thanks for posting these! Best regards, -a-
  3. Did you make it out on Saturday? Weather has been tough in the area... Proceed with caution. Best regards, -a-
  4. Bravos are highly developed traveling machines... Their owners are quite pleased, as they get what they expected and the plane lives on for a long time... When buying... it has the quirk that comes with most TCs... The first exhaust pipe bits between the exhaust valves and the TC are worth paying attention to... usual maintenance is important to be done properly with the pipe and V-band clamps... Improper re-use of the clamps leads to failures... The pipe is under pressure at high temps and thins out over time, erosion... Broken exhaust parts are not a normal occurrence... but improper maintenance can occur that leads to failures... Don’t let the exhaust escape under the cowling... that has bad juju... Always have a CO monitor to help sense the bad juju... Good luck with the search... will you be needing TT with that? Best regards, -a-
  5. Nothing scarier than stuck controls... Best regards, -a-

  10. Kelly, got any pics of your project? Although, not really Mooney related... but something an MSer built has got me interested... And 60 extra hp sounds pretty good too... Best regards, -a-
  11. Jeremy, We have a few resources of some disassembled pre-owned Mooneys... @SheryLoewen @acpartswhse @Alan Fox The rubber bladders have been a challenge, and the company is greatly reduced... as their primary person has flown West... Fortunately, you have the required skills... Hope these contacts can help... Best regards, -a-
