  1. Over 300 hours now on our flying restoration since purchase Sep 28,2018. Finally got the PF exhaust installed. We’re very pleased with the value and performance of our M20F.
  2. 2018 - CSEL 275 hours all personal/com training flying 2019 - 226 hours all personal flying 2020 - surpass 3000 hours total time, all in own airplanes. - Add weight shift control rating, buy SLSA Trike and fly with aging dad as often as possible Life is to be enjoyed.
  3. Any chance it will providing heading bug info to the TruTrak while functioning as a DG?
  4. So what was the problem/cause? Have you solved this mystery?
  5. How long has it been since your fuel servo was overhauled? Use a mirror and flashlight to check the part number on the front, should be a -11. If it’s a -10 it likely needs overhaul. ”The fuel metering section on the injector consists of the inlet fuel strainer, manual mixture control valve, and an idle valve. The idle valve is connected to the throttle valve by means of a link which incorporates a "star wheel" for idle adjustments. The lever movements made with this adjustment are minuscule and not easily visible due to the slightly different thread pitch on both sides of the wheel. The idle speed is adjusted by the threaded screw on the stop at the throttle lever. The mixture control valve is a simple on-off assembly that is manually adjusted by its lever.” if there is any excessive wear around the star wheel could be why your idle problems go away at higher rpm. http://www.dgsupply.com/node/2044
  6. First year of ownership is almost here. Installing the oil cooler relocation kit this week as we continue to make improvements to our vintage M20F. Pics to follow. LIG
  7. It wasn't a total failure, the engine would run at high rpms, but not smoothly. There was some trace amounts of fuel leaking from the old pump. I've gone ahead and inspected the entire fuel injection system since the flow divider and servo yellow tags are dated 2005. we fly way too much night/IMC cross countries to have any doubts in our engine and components.
  8. Clean and polish your firewall. Also if you’ve got the original relays, cables, etc. it’s a good time to replace those.
  9. Don’t forget the pilot valve. I had to replace one on my previous Mooney.
  10. Can I get the part number the “cooling thing”? is this it? https://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/eppages/fuelpumps.php
  11. Taxied out this past weekend and the engine quit during run up. After a quick experiment, the engine would only idle with the electric boost pump on. A new replacement lycoming fuel pump and gasket was ordered from spruce and is arriving today. Requesting advice and any helpful procedures to replace the fuel pump on my 67 M20F. Are there any other proactive maintenance tasks or recommended improvements while I’ve got things apart? Thanks in advance. Anthony
  12. Plus one for Russ at D&G. I’ve used his shop for years on my last three airplanes various fuel system components. High quality work and a quick turn around.
  13. This is very good advice and the exact logic that led me to buy an M20F vs the M20J/M20K options. I’d plus up the miscellaneous budget to $15k and luckily my engine overhaul money hasn’t been touched yet after 230 hours of flying since purchase. Knock on wood!
