  1. Super 6 gave up, there’s another buyer who has acquired N69ZZ. I encouraged the new owner to join Mooneyspace. hopefully he will listen and learn better than super 6 did.
  2. I’d like to recommend the three states region of SE Alabama, northern FL panhandle and SW GA area for consideration. Land is still widely available and affordable. There are numerous small airports with inexpensive hangar space or room to build as well as airpark options. It’s nice living in an area when the country goes full stupid you’re mostly not affected by the big city/big government nonsense. If you’re a self sufficient type looking for long growing seasons this area is worthy of consideration.
  3. FWIW I was a long time GP user (1400+ hours) and it did close out on me numerous times. So much so that I made sure I had two devices iPhone and iPad running while shooting approaches to have back up ready. For the past 300 hours I’ve been using FlyQ and am so pleased with the performance that I purchased a lifetime subscription at a very good price. YMMV
  4. New blocks installed, gear tension went up just a needle width. No adjustments made. Test flight complete. There is absolutely zero wobble on the Johnson bar handle when stowed in either position. Thanks to all who made this possible.
  5. I’ve got two new (Left and Right) LP Aero windshields still in the box I’ll sell you. They are the expensive UV thicker versions. See part numbers in attached photo. Full disclosure, I decided to install the one piece which is why I still have these. You will notice reduced noise and vibration with new thicker windshields.
  6. My new blocks arrived today. The craftsmanship looks outstanding. Great job! Thank you very much. Anthony Hanson
  7. Hardware is ordered, annual coming up, looking forward to this upgrade and the corresponding peace of mind. I think the gear up/down blocks were my last major concern with flying our vintage M20F on my 100th birthday. A big thank you to everyone who made this happen. Anthony Hanson (still averaging 20 hours per month Wuhan be damned)
  8. I’ve got a 67’ M20F with the oil cooler relocated, power flow exhaust, plane power alternator conversion and skytec starter. Let me know when your cowling is ready. Count me in!
  9. Works great. Inexpensive ADS-B in cockpit traffic and weather along with an emergency AHRS. Includes mounting base and AC charger.
  10. 1850+ hours since May 2011 in vintage Mooneys will teach you a thing or two about maintenance. :-)
  11. Almost 300 hours since install, working great.
  12. Finally upgraded to a thicker solar LPAero one piece windshield several weeks ago. We have noticeably less vibration and noise in the cabin as well as safer margins in the event of a bird strike. Be careful out there. Now have 360 hours on our M20F in the past 18 months of ownership.
  13. Order placed and message sent. Thanks for leading this effort. Anthony Hanson
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. Any chance it will providing heading bug info to the TruTrak while functioning as a DG?
  17. So what was the problem/cause? Have you solved this mystery?
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. Clean and polish your firewall. Also if you’ve got the original relays, cables, etc. it’s a good time to replace those.
