  4. King KY197 Comm for 14V aircraft. Working perfect when removed. Display is very clean with all digits in excellent condition. Complete with tray connector, harness, and antenna pig tail. Would be a nice replacement if yours has a bad display. Complete harness will keep installation cost low if you do a new installation. The KY-197 also features: Simultaneous digital display of both active and standby frequencies Push button frequency flip-flop 10 watts transmit power TSO'd
  5. Hangars and extension cords...

    If I remember correctly you're based in KDVT. We used to have a hangar on the north side of the field and did run into the same problem. When we replaced our Long Ez with the M20c I had to move the fridge from the front to the rear due to the longer wingspan. I thought hard wiring a long electrical cord to the fridge would satisfy the rules as I wasn't using an extension cord. We got written up soon after and were asked to removed the fridge from the hangar because it was not compliant due to non OEM power cord.
  6. Kx 155 .where to get work done ?

    I had a very bad experience with about 5 years ago. I was charged almost $1000 for sending the radio to them and and they didn't repair anything. After the radio was returned I found out the fault was in the Audio Panel.
  7. Dual band Stratux with GPS and AHRS works with most Apps. I used WINGX and it works very nice with the synthetic vision feature. $200 shipped.
  8. Is Bruce's still the Bee's Knee's for covers?

    We bought a very expensive custom Bruce cover for a previous airplane and it deteriorated within a couple of years. On top of it the cover was a poor fit. When we needed a cover for the Mooney we decided to go with Mac’s Airplane Covers LLC and couldn't be happy with the purchase. After more than 5 years of use in the Southern California sun it withstood a 80 mph storm in Palm Springs a few month ago . During you decision making process you might want to compare the cost of living in Silicon Valley with Michigan. This might explain why MAC delivers a much better value.
  9. M20C Firewall Forward Restoration

    Looks beautiful - wonderful workmanship! Wish mine looked like that. Do you have another picture of the front after closing the gaps above alternator and starter (see red highlights). I am trying to improve the baffling in this area and it would be nice to see a good looking example.
  10. I just installed a pair of Lasar Sun Visors and would like to offer my old sun visors for sale. Included is the Lasar mounting hardware for older models without attachment points. One of the little brackets cracked during removal and was repaired with epoxy (see picture). $150 includes shipping. Frank

  15. Halo in ear headsets

    This is copied from an older post titled "Custom Molded Earplugs": I was never happy with the standard ear tips for my LightSpeed Mach I. After coming across a do it yourself kit for custom molded earplugs for only $10 I gave it a try. It took about 30' to form a pair and it was fairly easy to follow the instructions (see below). The kit supplied a little bit less material than I would have liked and the outer surface didn't come out as smooth as shown in the picture on the package. I would recommend ordering to kits for one pair. After letting the plugs cure over night, I drilled small holes from the tip extending into the ear canal to the outside and inserted small plastic tubing with the matching the size of the metal tips on the headsets earpieces. I haven't tried them in the airplane, but I am very pleased with the first ground test using handheld radio and IPAD. Even the microphone piece stays now firm in the ear without using the hinged ear loop. JUST 3 EASY STEPS - Open the containers and separate the colored and white materials into halves, keeping separated. - Mix one of the colored halves with one of the white halves. Mix until both halves are one consistent color. - Gently press material into one ear by pushing in the center of the silicone. Let it sit in your ear for 10 minutes, then remove the plug. Repeat steps for second earplug. Pirep: Noise attenuation is significantly better than with the foam or rubber inserts. I find the ear plugs comfortable on longer flights and even in the desert environment sweating hasn't been in issue for me. Getting the earplugs in and out is a little tricky and I find myself using the Bose for short flights. One issue i did run into was the plastic tube not staying in the silicon pieces. I solved this problem with Uncle Don's superglue. (BTW is stuff is magical a did wonders when repairing my interior)
