  1. @Browncbr1You have me mixed up with someone else. I installed one 430W a year after I did the windshield mod, and one a year after that. I never had water damage. I have skinned my knuckles working behind the panel since the mod.
  2. Yes. The yokes were installed IAW the Cygnet instructions and Mooney maintenance manual.
  3. I waited about a month for a new oil cooler last winter.
  4. I used Cygnet yokes when I redid the panel on my '67F. https://www.cygnet-aero.com/control-wheel-ca60-524080-17 They have an adapter for either the large or the small shaft.
  5. Mike, Thanks for the heads-up. Seeing that I will be 71 next month, it might be time to let it go. I will be happy to PM with an interested party. Glenn
  6. I am planning on flying my M20F from KBLM to KECP for the Summit on Thursday September 27, returning on Sunday, if all goes as planned. if anyone wants a ride (right seat), please PM me.
  7. Cygnet Aerospace has an adapter that allows use of their yokes with the older, smaller shafts.
  8. Maybe. I am in the process of buying a boat, so the plane may go soon, but not until after the Mooney Summit.
  9. Mike Elliott knows Mooneys very well and is a great teacher. Lives in Tarpon Springs. He is very active in the Mooney community and is one of the founders of the Mooney Summit.

  11. As the owner of an M20F of approximately the same vintage, I salute you.  What a beautiful and comprehensive update on an already capable airframe.

      Thanks.  It was a good deal of work but now is a nice aircraft.  It sat in a hangar for 26 years in Dallas.  The engine had been overhauled in 1982 and sat until 2003 when I sent it to Penn Yan and changed everything that needed changing.  Everything else in the plane is either new or rebuilt.  It is a nice flying plane. I like the manual gear.  The avionics are great and it has speed brakes, long range tanks, built in O2 and a capable autopilot.   More comfortable than most airline trips for 7-8 hour legs.

      I have had my 1967 F since 1984 and still could not be happier flying it.  I updated mine a number of years ago, but you have done me one better.  Great job!

      Given that almost everything from the baggage compartment forward except for the steel cage, wing and engine is non-structural, these are very modifiable airplanes.  You did a nice job cleaning up your F.  Mine would have been similar but I got my hands on a crashed 1998 Ovation, bought parts from it  and found a DER.  That is when I started designing a new model.

  12. If you are not using 1/2 flaps on take off, try it. It makes a difference.
  13. KSMooniac Thank you for posting the audio.
