  1. Today’s data... unemployment numbers improved... a surprise for everyone... (Wall Street ran in a strong positive direction...) Many businesses in NJ have been given the ability to be open to the public... Scheduled out over the next few weeks... Lots of modifications and restrictions to go with that... My favorite restaurant is serving take-out, and has outdoor tables for your convenience... No sharing a waitress... We got it to go... When going out around here Masks for everyone... and gloves just in case... The gym is going to have different ways to walk in the business and to leave is a different door... Lots of video conferencing for family get togethers.... Lots of working from home... Small steps... no giant leaps... Traffic around town is back at a more normal level... Doesn’t look like the end of the world is coming, at least not quickly... Best regards, -a-
  2. I see that as well... But, the lower cheek Cowl seems to be all original... This would set the length from front to back, same as the original cowl.... And what seem to make up an extra inch is that part between where the guppy mouth ended... This cowl seems to have extended guppy lips... Looks like a Kcowl might be being employed for some reason? The Kcowl is longer because it has to house a pair of extra cylinders... Lots of extra work was used to put this cowl in place... the logs hold the info... PP guesses only, -a-
  3. DOK, That area has been sealed with everything over the years... 3M is a supplier of choice when it comes to sealant materials... they live in the automotive space... It is possible that Mooney didn’t use anything originally... that just doesn’t work very well... My C used a gray 3M putty material... easy to get out every year... easy to put back... It is good to have access back there... the heater controls and other things need to get lubed... and the brake fluid is up there as well... Best regards, -a-
  4. The C is nice for all the small things they learned about on the B... If you can... get a copy of CloudAhoy for your iPad and record your flights... You will remember more detail about the five hours after you review the flight... There was a free pandemic upgrade that went with that too... Best regards, -a-
  5. +1 on the Jeev experience... Good advice Good experience Makes things happen, gets answers direct from JPI... Good price too... Best regards, -a-
  6. Somebody should have invited Andrew... @Hyett6420 Oops, my bad... Best regards, -somebody-
  7. the AOPA seems to have the ombudsman position at the FAA... Best regards, -a-
  8. Fantastic Father’s Day gift for the man who has a Mooney/forever-plane.... Best regards, -a-
  9. Welcome aboard Christian. +1 for AGL... Unless the plane was going there for usual maintenance already... then find another source... we can give you a whole list after that... Best regards, -a-
  10. See if this helps with the perspective... Will you be needing donuts with that? We have a donut guy around here... I added a red painted frame... it comes from Italy... made by a group called Ducati... similar in size... Best regards, -a-
  11. Needs a this side up sticker... John would make a great plastic surgeon... Best regards, -a-
  12. Good luck Omar! Check in on MS when able. You are always welcome here... Best regards, -a-
  13. There must be a select Saint in charge of weary mechanical devices that we can pray to... for support... Best regards, -a-
  14. Misery likes to share experience... (I think I just made this up...) We have another MSer that had their IO360 engine in a car wreck... See if that was Aaron...? If you want to sell the project... Alan seems to take on these types of projects... Let me know if you need better contact info... Sorry to hear about the rest of your troubles... Stay healthy! Best regards, -a-
  15. How old is it? How many amps goes through it? They wear, and lose their click, over time... Having too much click, sounds like it may be dirty or broken... Lights that get used a lot have a tendency to wear The cb switch ... Takes less time to replace than it does to troubleshoot... So do the best you can with cleaning... PP thoughts only, -a-
