  1. I used Ken at Precision Avionics at KPOU in Poughkeepsie. Great job at a fair price. Easy to get to from NYC on MetroNorth.
  2. Actually, I think it’s the Bourbon capital of the world.
  3. I keep thinking of Don Kaye when I read this post. He came through his ordeal with his beautiful plane. I’m hopeful you will too. Best of luck.
  4. TiT 100 degrees over EGT sounds right. Some engines run further LoP than others even with fine wires & Gamis. If you can go further LoP without losing too much speed, try it.
  5. That’s the thing with airplanes (and ourselves), rarely do they just fail outright. There are warnings that something is changing. In both cases it’s critical to your health to listen.
  6. If you’re getting to 70 LoP, you’re good.
  7. Just renewed my insurance. Sizable increase, insurance agent said Mooney insurance rates have been going up.
  8. A while ago, I was helping a mechanic pull a prop off a ‘K’. ( not mine). When the prop was removed, there was a lot of what looked like lead paste inside the flange. I guess from centrifugal action. I’m guessing that it could get into the workings of the prop and gum things up. Id pull the prop and take a look before I’d do anything else.
  9. Just amazing what you guys are doing to these wonderful airplanes! A real collectors prize.
  10. Saw these the other day. Looks like a few kts to me.
  11. Flew under one a few months ago. Clouds are cool!
  12. I spoke with Customs yesterday at FXE. They told me to either enter my 2018 DTOPS # or “Pending” in that field of eApis. Bring your receipt for the DTOPS sticker.
  13. The problem with going by the book, is that the book has your mechanic adjusting high/low fuel pressure while doing ground static run ups. I had a fuel pressure transducer connected to the unmetered fuel pressure line, displayed on the JPI. Then test flew while noting the actual pressures. It took a few iterations to get it dialed in but I’ve never had an issue since.
  14. First things first. Idle should be set to 700 rpm. As was previously mentioned, on roll-out with the wnd pushing the prop, you are probably below your static idle rpm. Simple adjustment to idle, and see if that fixes it before doing a full fuel setup.
