  1. The Mooney Summit doesn't have calibration equipment anymore. Some how it went missing after one Summit. But I will be bringing mine and I believe @PeytonM will have his equipment also. So we should have ample ability to calibrate the Sensorcon units. Sensorcon will also be at airport day so they may be able to calibrate also. Cheers, Dan
  2. Thanks Anthony! Lots of good suggestions in this post. I would examine the examine the exhaust carefully. 137ppm does seem very high for a normally operating exhaust system and a leak into the cabin someplace. @Junkman had 200+ppm with a broken/loose V-band on his Bravo. Thanks for posting and please let us know what you find! Cheers, Dan
  3. I'll be there from Sunday through Wednesday AM. I'll bring the calibration gas if you or anyone else needs to calibrate. I'll be camping in the north 40. They were having problems with people reselling after using the coupons. I'm going to spend some time with them at Osh next week and I'll see if they plan on having another coupon. Glad you were able to get a new code! Cheers, Dan
  4. Sorry for the delayed response. The Sensorcon discount is still in effect. aircraft2021 still works on their website for 20% off. Please share with the C120/140 guys! Cheers, Dan
  5. Hi Ryan, I don't have the manual available but for performance specs take a look at an Alon manual. The performance will be very similar. Cheers, Dan
  6. Thanks Anthony. Another Mooney friend emailed that to me this morning. I'm all for every GA airplane having a CO detector. But I am concerned over the cost. If the FAA were to adopt this recommendation I'm sure high resolution portables wouldn't be included. It would be close to $1K on average for a panel mount. Cheers, Dan
  7. I hope you are wrong also, as I was hoping to do this in the next year. I'll watch this thread closely and see what it yields. Cheers, Dan
  8. At Airventure this past year I got a quote for a vernier throttle cable from McFarlane for my 231. The price was around $700 I think. I don't think a 337 would be required. It's just a simple mod as stated above. McFarlane Mooney Cables Cheers, Dan
  9. The oil pressure transducer is on a line coming off a T fitting on the turbo. So if he disconnected the turbo you won’t show pressure on the ships gauge. I’ve cranked with the top plugs out to “pre oil” with the turbo hooked up normally and it worked fine. cheers, Dan
  10. The Continental IO360's have a suction screen. It's not really a screen but a perforated tube, It only protects the oil pump from the really big stuff. My TSIO-360-LB1 also doesn't use much oil. I'm at 25hrs since last oil change and have only added 1/2 qt about 5 hrs ago. Also stays very clean. 125 SMOH. Cheers, Dan
  11. Try Aircraft2021 If that doesn't work let me know. Cheers, Dan
  12. Thanks Anthony, I don't think I have seen that one. I'll comb through it tonight. Cheers, Dan
  13. That’s what I used to do. Then that one time I slept too long Dan
  14. I know the last two radar tags are probably not very accurate. But simple math with the information there shows that the airplane would been around 265kts of airspeed. (121kt ground speed over 2 sec=410ft horizontally, 800ft vertically over 2 sec, = aircraft traveling 899ft in 2 sec. 450ft/sec = 265kts) I'm guessing that last return is about the point they exited the overcast and it happens to be about 2 blocks south of the impact. The natural instinct would be to pull when you see all that ground in front of you, I'm sure I would have done the same. I'm betting the structural failure happened in that last 3 sec to a structurally sound air frame. It's all so sad. My thought's and prayers are with the families. Dan
