  1. I saw a video from the guy doing most of the test flying in it. Performance is pretty marginal. Climb rate is poor and so is cruise speed. Like c-150 rates or worse. I’d hate to see the specs with one engine out

    Typical M20C speeds (TAS)

    I don't know about the yokes, done by someone before me...
  4. No Merlyn yet, but I have the intercooler. I use those power settings but I do 125 deg rich of peak in cruise... That is usually around 1530 on TIT.
  5. Great post! I'm getting one installed hopefully soon. Just ordered it and waiting on the MSC to call back to schedule the install...

    Need 12V+behind Avionics Master

    I think one of the changes from 231 to 252 is a change to the 28v system. Most 231s I see are 12v. My 84 is at least

    Holy cow that’s nice. I like the textured fabric of the baggage area rear panel

    Lol. I hope you’re enjoying the plane. She treated us well for 12 years.

    Whoever got that thing painted before you got it, wow! They did a great job!!! Look, the tow bar even matches. Amazing attention to detail

    Do hubcaps offer any advantages?

    I don't have any mechanically inclined hangar elves...I'm stuck with dirty tires. I should get some better elves.

    Could your elf provide a link for the hubcaps it found?
  12. Do you not have a primer? Why boost pump? Is it the same system?
  13. This seems to work for me: Cold throttle/mixture full forward prime 5 seconds throttle 1” starts pretty quick hot start throttle/mixture full forward prime 3 seconds or no primer if I just shut down within 5 minutes or so throttle half way in starts every time have been using the Hot start method above a lot in the last few days because trying to do fuel flow set up and it’s worked every time

    231 cowl flaps

    One of mine likes to drop below 250 degrees too in cruise with flaps partially open. Do you have a reference source for it being ok to go below 250? It would certainly make me more comfortable...
