  1. SB's and AD's

    Yeah, I know of the AD's on the FAA website, but they lack SB's and SI's. The Mooney website has SB's and SI's but dropped the AD's. It sure was convenient to have ALL the AD's, SB's and SI's all in one location as the older Mooney site had. I guess I can get all the SB's and SI's in one place and AD's on another. Cheers
  2. SB's and AD's

    The previous Mooney Corp owners had on their website a full library of service bulletins and Airworthiness Directives archived on their web site, linked to Mooney make, model and year. Are these pdf's located (hidden) on the new Mooney website, or may I find them archived elsewhere?
  3. O-360-A1A in M20C?

    Find a good A&P and talk about the possibility of doing a user-assist tear-down and overhaul. I have done it MANY times and enjoyed the process. Last overhaul was done for a very reasonable price... FAR less than the big shops and just as good end product. I have ZERO reservations doing field overhauls.
  4. M20B Weight And Balance Manual

    well, whadda ya know. Just because I am OCD, I went back to triple check my work, and indeed did find a small error of my envelope at 42 inches which changes things slightly. I pulled the links from my previous post and will replace them with updates soon. Sorry for the error. EDIT: Updated (corrected) files below Weight and Balance M20B .pdf Weight and Balance M20B .odt
  5. M20B Weight And Balance Manual

    Caruso, did you find some errors in my w/b sheet?
  6. M20B Weight And Balance Manual

    Here is my W/B worksheet for the M20B with graph envelope. I derived the chart from the text description in the TCDS. Your aircraft empty weight and CG will be different than the example provided, so it is up to you to make sure that it works for your particular aircraft. Also, it is up to you to make sure I didn't mess up the calculations or the entire concept for that matter, but it should be a good reference for you to start from.

  7. M20B Average Empty Weights?

    it only had a turbo and paint job added ... What?!!! A TURBO in a 1961 M20B?!!!
  8. Identify this Mooney?

    Flamingo pink. A color option listed in the M20B parts manual. I have it too, but it doesn't seem quite that intense.
  9. Identify this Mooney?

    It's a 1961 M20B... 100% EXACTLY the same as mine... mixture control, prop, throttle, cig lighter... EVERYTHING is the same (with a few expected updates in radios and digi stuff) and YES, it's a Mooney!!! BTW, look at where the master switch's to the right of the ign switch.
  10. Identify this Mooney?

    BTW, That ugly pink color is close to the original too! There was a "flamingo" color option available which part of my panel still has.
  11. Identify this Mooney?

    100% guaranteed it is an A or B model. This is EXACTLY how my B model (was) set up with the mixture control up on top of the center panel and the ign key in the middle. Mine now looks radically different with the removal of ALL the Fred Flintstone hardware and a spankin' new JPI EDM900 making up for the loss of steam gauges! Woo HOO!
  12. Strange Mixture Issue

    Forget to put your prop back in to proper pitch for climb or were you still in cruise setting? Did it ONCE and it left me wondering what went wrong...
  13. Apollo GPS data updates

    Jeez! Almost $200?! Now I remember why I don't update more than once every 4 or 5 years! Good thing I am not IFR rated.
  14. Apollo GPS data updates

    I need a skybound g2 reader as well. By the way, how much are updates for the Apollo? Since I don't fly all that much, can I get an occasional update as needed instead of paying for a full year? Phil
  15. Apollo GPS data updates

    Clarence, What database do you download from Jepesen to work with the Apollo GX 55? Is there a database specifically for the Apollo, or do you use one for some other Garmin product line? I ask because I have never used Jepesen products or services before and don't want to get tangled up with accounts if it isn't going to work.
