  1. Fuel Smell When Leaning?

    It’s an NPT fitting. No washers. Undertorquing it causes it to vibrate in the hole and strip the threads. Then you have to re tap th hole and hope it clocks right when it’s torqued. And you have to remove the intake tubes to re tap the holes too.
  2. The very title of the 337 is for major repairs and alterations. Does the beacon meet the definition of major alteration? If so, why, and if not, then why use the incorrect form.
  3. What do you think of this crazy J??

    It needs to be. Somehow we have to justify those 1.3T annual deficits for the foreseeable future.
  4. Flying the East River in NYC at Night

    That’s a nice video. Flights like that you’re probably thinking “did I safety wire that oil filter properly?”
  5. What do you think of this crazy J??

    It was a pleasure. Yours is the first paint job I like more than ours.
  6. What do you think of this crazy J??

    Are they selling for this?
  7. What do you think of this crazy J??

    That’s got to be the highest priced J I’ve ever seen. That’s A36TN money. My buddy Jim’s N33YZ was every bit that plane less the engine and it only brought mid 110s. I wish him well but it looks like he added up all his costs and listed it for that.
  8. Was this 231 flown enough?

    Well said. I would consider this mandatory on an engine these days. It’s gonna cost you 50k or more to get stuck with an overhaul. At least on contientals you can replace the lifters if they aren’t too bad and save the cam, and thus, an early overhaul.
  9. I think in your case maybe the best thing to do is what i did. Put the fittings on the engine and the oil cooler and take some 1/2” heater hose and route it and cut to length then order that length
  10. How many hours is too many??

    I’ve seen this airplane a couple of times now and the belly of it is cleaner than the top of the wing on most airplanes and the rest looks like it was painted last week. In fact I stopped by on my way from the paint shop and besides the timeliness of the color scheme, you couldn’t guess who’s was just painted and who’s was painted in 1988. That’s Imron and a meticulous owner for you.
  11. The J A3B6 oil cooler hose par numbers were generated by me and they have them. If the oil cooler isn’t in the exact same place as a J then you’ll need to measure your length requirements. Take the measurement from the center of the flare on each fitting that the hose connects to.
  12. Imron paint job cost?

    He is a bit rather old school. Just call him up he is good about answering the phone. Yes they only use Imron AF400. They strip with SPC-909 neutral stripper.
  13. M20J alternator belt

    Idk it’s a 50$ belt and by the time it goes bad, the other one is bad too from being zip tied to a hot engine for 800 hours, and 5 years of ozone.
  14. Backup AHRS

    I have an aera660 and it gets weather, AHRS attitude, and traffic through the GTX345
