    M20 Turbos Pressure relief valve

    I just tried to google search your part number, 470930-9018. A number of sources come up. John Breda

    M20 Turbos Pressure relief valve

    This is not a difficult problem. Contact Aircraft Accessories in Oklahoma. https://aircraftaccessoriesofok.com/ They have the ability to take a pop-off valve of similar type, and change its crack pressure, and re-label it with the new part number due to the change. Should not be difficult finding a valve that can be rebuilt, converted and re-tagged. John Breda

    Stupid question - M20K Oxygen

    I have the Mountain High O2D2 Oxygen conserver: http://www.mhoxygen.com/index.php/portable-pulse-demand It is well worth the price. It will accommodate 2 people. It works well as a conserver. A 7 hour flight drops my O2 cylinder pressure from 1800 --> 1500 psi. When you breath ism you can hear as feel the puff of O2 so you know the system is working. It is quite comforting, kind of like a clock ticking. When you don't hear and feel it with each breath, you will know it and the box will alert you. Highly recommended. John Breda

    Play in trim shaft, normal?

    There were originally phenolic blocks which served as a means to reduce the hole in the aluminum and act as a guide. However, the phenolic material itself was abrasive. With a DER approval we made similar blocks out of nylon which not only act as more effective guides, but also are much less abrasive. They are installed just as the phenolic blocks were installed.

  10. Has anyone tried this flexible funnel: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B016KTC3FO/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_2?smid=A1UMBRA5ZTBCX8&psc=1 I have a quick oil drain on the left (Lycoming IO360-A1A) which I can reach by opening the L cowl flap. Tried using amazon doggie bags (which fit over oil filter) but there is not much of room to bring the opening of the bag around the filter so it indeed catches the oil. I am trying to not take the lower cowling off. Is there enough room (Under the loosened oil filter) to snake this flexible "funnel" sheet to direct the oil that is inside of the filter outside of the cowling, perhaps through one of the cowl flaps?

    There is such a device - it is a pre-oiler. It is available by STC. I have one, originally planned to put it on the airplane but then chose not to as a weight saving measure. I spoke with Dugosh back in the day when I was doing my rebuild and they though it was not necessary. I still have the pre-oiler and all of the paperwork should I want to install it. The manufacturer of the pre-oiler states that it absolutely decreases wear. Reportedly the bulk of engine wear occurs at start-up, particular in colder temperatures. Any thoughts? John Breda
