  4. Well the compression on one cylinder is low , So I pulled it and for the life of me , cant see anything wrong with it , so I said screw it , pulled all 4 inspected the cam , and the jugs go to Columbia engines tomorrow morning for an IRAN , hone it , check for cracks , clean it and replace the exhaust guides , and a Valve job....
  5. Don't sweat it Seth , If need be we can do it in your hangar...1 day off , One day to change the gear , and two days back on.... 4K plus parts .. And you are buying the lunches.....

  9. Nice clean GI106a 1650.00 856 419 5209 ..
  10. I have one
  11. I use the Clear-view..... It works and less than half of plexus
  12. Has anybody installed an Ashby glareshield ? just curious about the quality , also is it a replacement , or a cover for an existing glare shield , My J is missing the glareshield....
  13. Yes , buy until they actually stop , they will bend symmetric....Ehen I flew around , I thought I got it in time , until I shut down....
  14. I can tell you from personal experience , that this is not the case , I bent the tips in 2 inches on the runway , and it had NO discernable impact on performance....
  15. And you wonder why nobody likes you....How about a little empathy for the deceased , How about adding value to the thread , instead of arrogance , judgment and stupidity......
  16. Bought a used perfect one (factory) from Dave , Saw your plane there , didn't have time to do a saw pic..
  17. WOW thanks , you have really added value to this thread....appreciate the insults ....... Thank you...
  18. well started into the annual today , did the SB208 and inspected the cage , replaced the ADF antenna , Replaced the Strikefinder head , replaced the lenses on the KX155 and KR87 , pulled the interior , replaced the battery , and cleaned the box....spent two hours scrubbing off the years of mold , and trying not to scrub off the paint..... will put in another days work tomorrow , then order parts , and off to the other Mooney ( old C ) to throw on a cowl closure mod , and some new tiedowns....
  19. If they are the ones on the bottoms of the yokes , I see them , but have not had a chance to get to them yet..
  20. Not corrosion , its just the way the pic is , The only corrosion so far has been the ADF antenna was trashed , and the Dzus fasteners are rusty , Every plane is a different story , one thing for sure is that sitting is not good for any machine , There are mitigating factors sometimes....One is price , one is where they sit , ..... So far I have only put 900 dollars into the project , ( new tailpipe , used glareshield , used battery , used pucks , 70 gals fuel , new lenses for a few of the radios ) I don't go into these things with my eyes closed , You will hear the (experts) rip it apart , I love when the experts chime in and give their opinions , I have bought and sold many aircraft and over the years only one had a cam issue , The best part about this project is that it came off a property that had 40 cats on it , there is NO rodent or bird damage at all...took me a while to put the two together , also sat in an area that got direct sunlight , Anyhow , The engine purrs like a kitten , (had to clean the points to get it started ) and the autopilot and F/D ground check , So far the only squawks are the lighting in the dash , and the Monroy traffic detector wont turn on , I'm pretty confident this will make a nice bird and I cant wait to fly it....Haven't flown a J in 20 years ..
  21. Tach date stamp coincides with the year and model , so I am pretty confident it is the original tach and time , And what I thought were wood overlays , are lighted overlays....
  22. Because you don't overhaul a 330 hour engine , you run it , and then if it starts making metal , you IRAN it.....
