    How to install LED Strobes?

    You will not connect the LED to a strobe power supply anyway. What is the technical reason why it should not be possible to remove the power supply on one side an replace this with a LED? Only that the other side is on the same supply wire ? The whole aircraft is on one supply wire ... If thats the case than the high voltage supply would be a massive EMV disturber which disqualifies it as an aircraft part.

    Small GFC 500 Update

    They have updated their Website again. Looks like they have a strong Cessna preference ...

    Small GFC 500 Update

    If the smaller ones do the job the bigger ones will only add weight ...
  4. I think this version of the KMA24 does not have an internal intercom.

    Sabre Cowl Gen2

    Would you mind to explain whatt the Sabre Cowl is and for what models it will fit?
  6. Nop - I was interested if he found a way on a stock 231. But thanks for your answer anyway :-)
  7. Do you have that installed in a 231?

    First Mooney: 231 vs. 201

    The 231 can be flown LOP very nicely and it in fact makes engine handling a lot easier. For what it is worth for you - having 6 jugs instead of 4 makes a smoother running engine

    First Mooney: 231 vs. 201

    I was in the same situation a couple of years back, decided for the 231 and never regretted it. Flying IFR in Europe the turbo really helps, because you usually get better routes when flying higher. Crossed the Alps with a friend in his NA B36 on a summer day last year. Climbing to 10.000ft took pretty long and had us divert to a shallower route - doing the same in the Mooney was a no brainer in FL160. I heard the same engine stories as you, but even with my GB I can keep the CHTs below 380 which is one major key for engine longevity. Engine management is definitely more complicated, but no black magic.

  11. Just tried to visualize my thoughts. The first picture is with tanks half full where I understand the fuel gauge starts to read correct. The second one is with the outboard fuel sender (red dot)hittong the top skin. That looks to me that a recalibration should make it possible to get at least a descent reading up to a value of more than 72 and less than 100. Probably the 85 you mentioned Jose? Do I overlook something?
  12. How did you configure your EDM with the longrange tanks. Did you change the max fuel (72->100)? Did you recalibrate the senders? If so, how did you enter the values after the senders went to the max position?

    Trim Jackscrew Binding

    I know - Lasar is where I got the new bearings from. The problems are more customs, high shipping costs ( interestingly it is much more expensive to ship from the US to Europe than vice versa ... ) and long turnaround times. I might need to go that way when we don‘t succeed - but for the time being I keep my fingers crossed :-) Anyway, thanks for your help !

    Trim Jackscrew Binding

    I would love to send it to Lasar, but as I am based in Europe it is more complicated. I do intend to install new bearings and will take a close look at the shims.

    Thanks for the pics, Vance! They help a lot - hope we get it right next week ...
