  1. I have been a Dawley customer for a long time too. I received a flyer a few months back announcing his retirement and the referral to aerospace welding. I just had AWM overhaul my entire 231 exhaust. I think the prices were fair(comparable to Dawley’s recent prices), craftsmanship appears good. Turn around time was fast, about 1/2 of the 8-9 days quoted. I’m happy with them. Well as happy as you can be when you drop 4amu on an exhaust OH. cheers, Dan
  2. You can remove the clip mount in the back with the single screw. I mount mine on the panel with Velcro (with the clip removed). If you have any GoPro mounts laying around the clip can usually be coaxed into one. Sensorcon sent me a prototype mount and it is very much like a GoPro mount. cheers, Dan
  3. My wife often justifies a bed time snack because she doesn’t want to wake up hungry in the middle of the night. I started intermittent fasting just over a year ago. Either one meal a day or 20/4. It’s been nothing but positive, I wish I figured this out years ago. cheers, Dan
  4. A few more photos to go along with the story. cheers, Dan
  5. With the exception of Eric’s pi post that may be the longest Mooneyspace post. But I didn’t notice its length until I scrolled up after reading, Wow Seth! I have had my share of ups and downs the past few years but these posts sure put everything in perspective. If there is anything I can ever do for you down the road. Anything, just reach out. Cheers, Dan Here is a bad cellphone photo of you, Mari, Alan, and Anthony departing the Summit. Ron Jarmon and I took the golf cart out and watched you guys depart.
  6. Once you hit peak egt and leaner, HP is mostly a function of FF. With the 8.5:1 compression ratio in your J the magic formula is around 14.9hp per 1 gph. Example: 8.5gph would be about 63% power. 8.5*14.9/200 Most LOP settings with a IO-360 would be 0-15 LOP. 50 LOP would not be practical in most cases for the reason you mention. The Continental IO-520 usually runs well at 50 LOP, most Ovations are very happy there. Cheers, Dan
  7. I can always count on Anthony to do my dirty work. Thanks! @FJC congratulations on the O! You are going to love it. Now order a CO detector cheers, Dan
  8. I'm planing on doing this with my K. It might cost me a quarter of a knot at cruise, at most. Cheers, Dan
  9. Thanks Jim! I didn't intend or want to be the "CO Guy", I sort of fell into it.. pun intended. The response from the aviation community has been fantastic. Particularly here on Mooneyspace, I thank all of you for that. We are making a difference, but there is still a ways to go. Worldwide there has been 14 aviation CO fatalities (that we know of) since my accident. Cheers, Dan
  10. The basic one (inspector) has preset alarms and only flashes and beeps. The middle one (industrial) adds a vibration feature to the alarm. Helpful for CFI's that might wear them from plane to plane. The top of the line (industrial pro) adds the ability to have custom alarms. I personally don't mind the default of 35ppm, I have only had the alarm a handful of times on the ground. But I see the merit of @cnoe argument of not wanting to alarm passengers. I watch my ppm so closely now (imagine that), I wouldn't even need the alarm. It's my understanding that the only difference betwe
  11. I'm by no means an expert. But I like to see no or very very low readings. Most of us see 0-2ppm in cruise. If it's higher than that it's worth investigating as to why. Often time people find very serious problems with relatively low CO readings. CO monitors can be used as an early indicator of exhaust health not unlike what engine monitors do for the rest of the engine. I have had people report to me simple exhaust leaks all the way to a broken engine mount, found my their CO detectors. Keep an eye on them and listen to what they are saying. Folks like to quote OSHA numbers for
  12. Thanks for sharing this Vance. Good stuff. I also make my own checklists tailored to me and my airplane. And encourage my students to do so. I think it's also important to number the checklist items. When running the checklist saying the number out loud before the item helps to keep your place and not miss items. Cheers, Dan
  13. I flew into Airventure with the Mooney Caravan in 2018. It was my first flight with the Caravan so I had not yet been assigned a call sign. Of the 70+ Mooneys on the ramp at MSN this little guy chose to lay under my plane. He was sound asleep when we arrived on Sunday to fly into OSH. After a few photos he ran off, toward the Air National Guard facility. So at the Caravan Banquet I was given the call sign "Groundhog" I wasn't thrilled with this name as I was hoping for something cooler, something more personal. About a week later it occurred to me that my little run in wi
  14. Sensorcon is still offering a 20% discount. The new discount code is: Aircraft2021 I have edited the original post. Cheers, Dan
  15. The yearly bump reminding everyone to get CO protection! 4 years ago today I became the luckiest man alive. Sensorcon is continuing to support us pilots with a discount. The newest 20% off code: Aircraft2021 Cheers, Dan
