    Seat Rollers

    To get us back on track..... this is what my worst roller looked like. It had been sliding on the rail and rubbing against the carpet as you can see that in the photo. The new ones roll perfectly. I think the carpet was out of adjustment and what caused my problem because the roller was otherwise fine and no real flat spot. Oh, and take s little time and the right size drill bit in your fingers and shop vac get the debris out of the seat rail.

    It just feels strange because the muscle memory for 10 years had the female end of the buckle on the left side in the pilot seat, now it's on the right side.

    No shoulder harness, just lap belts. If there had been a shoulder harness they obviously would have to be set to work correctly.

    Considering Mooney purchase NE Oklahoma

    Any of the M20 models especially the C, E, F, and J would suit you well to train and get hours and ratings. You might get away with 3 in the back seat under perfect circumstances but I wouldn't consider that, but I have traveled with 4 adults many times. None of these are practical to haul your entire family of 5.

    Seat Rollers

    I swapped the seats when I installed the new rollers, but did not swap the seat belts. The buckles are bassakwards and it kinda feels weird, but they work just fine. I'm definitely not gonna pull the seats out or try to swap the buckles while on the rails, but I'll swap them this winter at annual.

    My IA put new brushes in as Clarence suggested and never a problem since.

    Engine rough at 2400 RPM

    I will plan on service on my 40 year old servo as a maintenance item at annual in the near future.

    Congratulations 18Q !!! I just read this thread and we certainly do have a wealth of knowledge here. Sounds like the advice you got not only helped you diagnose and fix your plane, but maybe even saved your life.

    Antennas

    I had the same problem you are describing so we replaced my front Seven antenna with a new CI-196 and replaced all cable with new RG-400 and it made no significant difference. Dual Magnet overhaul gave a small improvement. I just replaced the ignition harness and now have the best radio I have had in 10 years of ownership.

    Seat Rollers

    I had the same problem and bought 8 new rollers from LASAR and installed myself with signoff. Even though I didn't like the price, it was well worth it.

    Radio issues finally solved

    I am now sipping on my favorite medicinal victory beverage, and preventing Malaria and Scurvy at the same time. Anyone know what it is ?
