  1. It's kind of what you get used to right? I've always known forever that I could have that adjusted but never got around to having it done. Also, all the adjustments in the world would not fix a bent flap Pump Rod (referring to my Mooney, not me! ). Not until I had to have it overhauled did I experience how flaps were supposed to retract!
  2. Just had my flap pump rebuilt by LASER and they charged me $242.95. That was the cheapest part of the repair. The 20 hours of labor to have it removed, reinstalled and system bled is what really caused a hit to the pocket book!
  3. I've read somewhere that full retraction of the flaps should be around 12 seconds. In my plane, it was closer to two seconds! So unless I wanted to have a laundry problem with my passengers I had to milk the flaps up (assuming I used them at all). Well during my last annual, the mechanic noticed that the rod leaving my flap pump was bent. After attempting to fix it, he ended up sending it to LASER to be rebuilt. Now, my laps retract very close to the 12 second time-frame. It's so nice to be able to bring the flaps up without feeling like your on a Disney amusement ride!
  4. Hi All, During my annual this year, the A&P broke the news to me that my muffler needs to be replaced. When he said that it would be around $1600 to have it overhauled, I about fell over! Does anyone have a lead on where I can find a serviceable muffler until I can get installed until I can look into other options like a Powerflow exhaust system? Thanks, Gary
  5. Its configured using the 429 interface. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk
  6. I have a GTX330ES. I'll need to check what fuel flow is installed. It was in the plane prior to my purchase. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk
  7. Interesting. This has been wired this way for several years and this error just now started occurring every so often. I'll take it to my avionics shop to see what they say. Thanks for the guidance . Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Looking at the configuration screen, it looks like it might be the fuel transducer might be acting up. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk
  9. I have a STec 50 with GPSS and a GTX330ES connected to my 430 but both appear to be working.
  10. Guys - On a flight today I started receiving the following message " Not receiving 232 input data on channel #2" on my Garmin 430W. Any thoughts on what might be causing this error/message?
  11. I'll be there as well but I'm flying into Appleton and avoiding the craziness that's Oshkosh! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. Expect to pay $10-12k for a turn-key job from a quality aircraft interior company like Aero Comfort. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. I was also thinking that a split collar like the fire extinguisher mounts would work. Maybe take the Rosen visors and flip them where they mount to the center post instead of the sides. Need to study the visors closer to see what might work.
  14. Here's an option as well... http://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/pspages/ram11-13584.php
  15. We're needing to find a way to mount the Rosen sun visors to the center post vs. the side mounts as they are sold. Not sure if possible but that's the thought.
