    Correct battery

    As stated in the original post, my plane came from the factory with a Gill 243, which does not require a battery box. It was a flooded battery, but was designed with a dam, an aluminum cap and a vent nipple to save the airframe manufacturer from making a box. My plane was not listed in the correct area of Concorde's STC or in the Mooney parts catalog. A call to Mooney was met quickly and efficiently with the factory drawings (the specification that is used with each plane in order to account for changes) which shows the exact point at which Mooney changed the J to the G243. They also supplied an SI that allows the owners of G243 equipped aircraft to change to the Concorde RG24-11M or RG24-15. I received the contact info from a MS lister and I couldn't have received better service from the factory on an airframe that left 28 years ago. If anyone needs the above info for their J (SN 24-3076 - 24-3218) let me know and I'll send it.

    The listing on Concordes website only shows 28 volt with a serial number above 3200. It doesn't address my SN. I have a call into Concorde engineering, maybe they have a work around. Anyone with a 1989-1990 J probably has the same issue.

    Correct battery

    There are several 201s that have the same issue. I'm hoping that someone has already been down this road. I try to keep things legal. I don't want to deal with a sharp eyed IA one of these annuals and have problems. I've emailed Mooney, I don't know how long they take to answer. Larry
  4. I have a later 201 serial #24-3149. It was delivered from Mooney without a battery box using a Gill243 manifold vented battery. The problem is that Concorde, Gill, the TCDS and the Parts manual all call for serial numbers between 3000 - 3200 to have a battery box and a Gill 242. Has anyone else had this issue? If so, how did you handle it? Thanks, Larry

    Landing Gear Horn

    Paul - Thanks for the reply. I'll check and let you know. Larry
  6. I have a '90 J and am having a problem with the gear horn. The horn will sound for about 1 second, then stop. The throttle microswitch has been cleaned with contact cleaner and hits the detent at the correct MP. The Sonolert was replaced, but still the same 1 second warning. Any ideas? Larry
  7. Watch out. Cliffy talks about Airbus all the time, so he must think highly of them.

    Rain cap for fuel

    I know that these are more durable, but are they Mil-Spec? IOW, what is the IA going to say at annual?

    anti seize on spark plug insulator.

    Why not just use engine oil instead of anti-seize. It is even suggested in Lycoming SI 1042AB. Larry

    Ignition harness

    Thanks! I'll try to find the springs tomorrow. Thanks to Clarence also. The local Spruce shows them in stock. Larry

    Ignition harness

    If you can post the repair manual, it would be great. The number that I was given for the spring turned out to be a dead end, as no one stocked it. Larry

    Ignition harness

    It's a Slick harness. The spring that I'm asking about is the one that is attached to the "cigarette". Thanks, Larry

    Ignition harness

    A couple of springs on my ignition harness are heavily worn and need to be replaced. Being a CB, I would prefer to not replace the entire harness. How are these replaced? where can I purchase them? I've tried the usual online sources, but am not able to find them, or I'm not using the correct term in the search. Yes, I know this is not owner maintenance. Larry

  15. Set of Wisor Visors, right and left, for all Mooney aircraft that have corner mount visors. These are in "like new" condition. My daughter bought me a set of Rosen’s. To keep family harmony I removed my Wisor Visors and installed the Rosens. One of the visors got chipped while in storage, so I am providing two new lenses. One is mounted, as shown, the other you can use as a spare. $250. Plus shipping. Call Larry (760) 715-7097
