  1. Over 30AMU now... No time on the engine since it's OH many years ago... Wings, Is there any detail regarding the recent history? Looks like it may have been related to an estate sale. I was unable to pick up the logs from that link... You picked the right place for showing Mooneys for sale... Best regards, -a-
  2. 7pm today? -a-
  3. When selecting where the holes go.... 1) some people include gravity in their thoughts. If something falls in the hole. 2) being able to see the holes easily is good for the people trying to plug the two different sized plugs in. Some PP ideas that come to mind... Best regards, -a-
  4. Great Pirep, OG! Best regards, -a-
  5. And I used a Boston accent when I did it... Antenna Faaahm. A hint that it is an interference issue, turn the other radios off and see if the GTN comes back on line. It would help if you can display the GPS sattelites being used page. best when done in IMC... Best regards, -a-
  6. Thanks for sharing the wisdom, Don! Best regards, -a-
  7. Just a guess... The white rubber is an insulator and the static wick is trying to deliver the static energy off the end. I lose a wick every now and then, usually by people walking into them accidently in the tight hangar area. I have never noticed if they work or not. It could take some special air quality like cold dry air to make them noticeable... Only missing one, less of a big deal... having one impaired, even a smaller issue. They are easy to replace. They are screw in. Probably available through Aircraft Spruce... Best regards, -a-
  8. That explains the beauty... The Marauder was a B26. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_B-26_Marauder So close.., -a-
  9. Any idea how close your GPS antennae are to each other? This was a usual challenge for new Garmin GPS installations, a decade ago. Some people have got this again when trying to use the same holes from previous antennae. There may be some hints of what worked in terms of grounding planes... Best regards, -a-
  10. Hooking up a vacuum cleaner, running in reverse, as a blower... to pressurize the air intake... where the filter has been removed... consider the alternate air as a potential location to add air pressure or have a leak... Then soapy water, looking for bubbles... just remember there will probably be at least one intake valve open during this exercise. Make sure nothing comes out of the hose but air. Sound familiar? Fuzzy PP memory of something I read along the way, somewhere.... Best regards, -a-
  11. The sole advantage is in using lighter wire. When building a new plane, or rebuilding an old plane, this could make sense... If spending gobs of money on a new alternator, throw in a few more bucks for... an updated voltage regulator a JPI to display current and voltage a new Concorde battery with battery minder buy a new shunt, somebody has lost one before... That's essentially the basis for electrical power generation and storage. Everything else is on the use side. Typical PP ideas, not a mechanic. Best regards, -a-
  12. The plane, looks like a Marauder...? But the girl doesn't meet the usual standards of a Marauder girl. Best regards, -a-
  13. Have you found the other threads covering this topic? I know, before shoulder belts were popular, the left and right buckle sets got swapped. The only thing I remember regarding this topic was just remembering not to do it accidentally. Passengers look at you funny when you disconnect their buckle... Best regards, -a-
  14. Sounds like something is worn causing the slew of other challenges... trim servos get a lot of exercise... Popping the CB stands out as an obvious hint. Might want to test as many functions as you can in the control and trim system. See if everything is smooth and goes to the limits... Auto Pilots Central may be the next stop...? PP thoughts only, not a mechanic... Best regards, -a-
  15. The white layer seems to have departed... it is some type of rubbery coating not sure if that is needed for the function... Often it splits before jumping ship. Looks like it may have hung halfway, before releasing. The anti-static unit itself is somewhat brittle and easy to break. Best regards, -a-
