  1. glare shield lighting

    It is located behind the circuit breakers, halfway to the firewall, and buried in the wiring. It is bolted down and soldered in. Requires the whole circuit breaker panel assembly removed...
  2. FASTEST?

    ARI cowl mod, flap gap, brake rotation, dorsal mod...201 windsheild is next.
  3. Autopilot porpoising-KFC225

    The King KFC225 is an attitude based autopilot. I would recommend taking another look at the attitude indicator as this is the main signal the autopilot computer is looking at during pitch mode operation. The computer and adi in that system does require a setup / calibration and also requires a special jig from King. Sending them for repair together is usually needed unless you have the 225 test set.
  4. I heard that he passed out shortly after take off and the autopilot took over, the plane ran out of fuel and landed itself. Thats what I heard on the local news at 5:00 today. I am thinking it is PC equipped and the system worked....

  6. Radio noise

    Hey Tom, I have seen the factory CD player make noise and if I can remember correctly... you have that in your panel. Try turning that on and off also to see if it makes any difference. The music inputs are also one of the main pickups for static noise, especially with PS brand of IC the barrel of the music jack must be isolated from ground.
  7. All of the Mooneys I see have been converted to -3 size
  8. Spruce sells Aeroquip 303 Hose that is Mil Spec & Fittings, or Sky-geek has Stratoflex 111-3 Hose...
  9. Been there done that Thanks anyway
  10. Yes, 24 amu is the number from straight from Steve at Mooney... We cannot change over to a manual gear as there are things called parts manuals and you cannot install parts that are not listed in the manuals...They stopped using J-bars in 69' & Mooney does offer the retro-kit so you cannot start making parts in your garage because you do not like the price. I wish that was the case but I still would not manufacture my own gear actuator due to that liability thing. I own a J-bar C model and you couldn't give me electric gear for free!!! J-bar for life (: Thanks, Brent
  11. I have sent emails to all of the Mooney parts suppliers with no luck so far. I was hoping someone had one with bad gears. Mooney makes a retro-fit kit to install a new style Eaton gear actuator for the low price of $23995 with a 10 week lead time. The customer will not spend the money on the retro-kit, the plane geared up and the cost of repairing will exceed the value if we cannot find another option. The ball bearings in the block are no longer round and were falling out literally. Anyone need parts for a M20F Mooney?
  12. Anyone else??? Please...
  13. Hello everyone, I am working on a 75 M20F with the ITT Gear Actuator LA11C2114. The bearings on the actuator failed and damaged the jack screw. Please tell me someone has an actuator with a good jack screw, I can reuse the gears from this one. Please help get this bird flying again instead of sending her for scrap. Thank you, Brent 63-C- Lapeer Aviation Inc. 810-664-6966
  14. Garmin GX60 general question

    The GX60's common problem is the display is not available or repairable. The user interface is horrible in my opinion (owned a GX55 & still own a 60 with a bad display..lol). The unit will be of no help to you in 6 yrs when you need a waas gps signal for ADSB. With the age of these units approaching 20 yrs old now I would not spend any money on avionics that are no longer supported by there manufacturer...
