  1. One of the best things I've found for driving a taper pin out is (don't laugh or judge) an air chisel with a flat tipped punch. Hold it VERY FIRMLY to the pin and use MINIMAL AIR - just enough to get the internal "hammer" of the air chisel gun working. The pin typically frees within 3 "strikes" without deformation to the pin. Keep the nut in place so as not to mess up the pin threads, but back it off enough to give you free play for the pin to move.
  2. Not an expert by any means, however, has anyone considered the incapacitating effects of the fire extinguisher that's discharged in a confined space especially during flight? All of the "Clean Agent" extinguishers work by taking away one component of the fire triangle - Oxygen
  3. I distinctly remember outrunning you
  4. Oh yes - I'll be hanging around. I might just buy another and do er again! But for now the immediate needs dictate I bow out for a bit.
  5. Moving on from ownership for now.

  7. I've seen that video many times - each time (armchair quarterback for sure) I always wonder why he didn't go left - no trees, one less turn that would contribute to altitude loss.....
  8. I'm thinking that you drug the tip of the scope across the valve and it left a "pencil mark" on the face - the other valves had too much carbon build up to leave the same mark
  9. Community hangars tend to have more "fuel evaporation" than most. However it's more prevalent on planes that have a lock open sump like a beechcraft....
  10. I haven't read with detail all of the others comments - but I would submit it was the above statement that was the first link in the chain to your "not so perfect" landings. As hard as it is in these situations the passengers are a concern to get on the ground but not the main concern, The main concern is to force yourself to think about your duties and even though they are uncomfortable they will be fine. BTW - I make sure each passenger position has two barf bags courtesy of the big boys..... You experienced "get thereitis in an attempt to get your passengers on the ground in the most expedient way - lucky it was only three sub par landings and not something worse.
  11. HA! that's not a blob..... it's a double acting structural support and heat sink to prevent future failures!!!! I always super support my solder connections that way!
  12. Being on the left coast you are guilty until proven innocent. I left in 97 - will never consider returning to live and now will give second thoughts about visiting....
  13. Bushing and reamer from Lasar - IIRC less than .5 amu all in
  14. removing that exhaust riser may give you enough of the broken stud to remove successfully. Luckily it wasn't the inboard stud. consider one of these - DO NOT give into the temptation to try a vice grips......!2966!3!50916684477!!!g!66418499839! As a last resort one can place a nut - oversize in some cases - and weld the nut to the stud. But that's for someone who KNOWS how to weld. Misplacement of the ground lead can be more damaging to the engine than the broken stud.
