  1. IO-360 Fuel Servo

    The impact tubes since the airflow into the engine ( like the pitot tube) and adjust the fuel pressure inside the servo. The tubes lead to one side of a diaphragm and that has no outlet. I would not think very much of the debris would get there since the air is static or almost. I would not use anything stronger than avgas to clean it if I were doing it.
  2. N201XG

    The high compression helicopter engines have a 1200 hr. TBO. They also have a manifold pressure limitation on max power settings. These engines are hard on cylinders and I have seen lots of head separation problems.

  5. Oil Leak? Ideas

    The weep hole on your tach cable should be turned to the bottom. It's there to let the oil out of your tach cable if the seal starts to leak. It will fill your tach with oil if its turned up and make your tach inaccurate.

  7. Plastic Interior Question and Pirep

    On most shop vacs the vacuum air is circulated thru the motor after passing thru the filter, the motor has a set of brushes that are producing a spark. This means you are mixing flamable fumes with an ignition spark, Your vacuum might explode !!!

  15. First Annual

    Use your local A&P he can give you as good of service and do it at less cost because of no travel time. And if your not a regular customer of his don't expect him to help you when you need it the most like evenings and weekend when you have a fouled plug and have a must to trip. Mooney is a simple airplane and he should be able to handle it. If not then he should not be working on any airplane.
