  1. Here's another lesson you learned; Klixon breakers fail. I have replaced at least half of them over the years. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  2. And don't let him kid you about those cargo pants. It looks like it just bought them and the clothing store is right behind them. I saw him on Sunday, definitely starting to live up to his "Stinky Pants" namesake. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  3. I tend to agree with you Paul. I have never had static wicks on my plane and can't say any I have seen a problem created by not having them. Even when I had any ADF, I saw more interference by a lightning storm than by precipitation static. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  4. The fun part in yesterday's festivities was watching Mike's parrot poop on command. Guess who got the brunt of it?
  5. It'll be in the same location. Next to the pilot side cowl flap there will be a curved panel. Behind this panel is the one where the pump resides. I've owned my F for 26 years. I think I went through 2 Dukes rebuilds in about 9 years. Switched to the Weldon and haven't looked back. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  6. Yeah, but they didn't need to be back at work a week from Monday. 🤣 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. Yeah, he has a new interior. Still wears the same cargo pants though. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  8. I'll pass. Not sure I want someone working on my sinus who can't post a picture correctly. [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. Mike, I have an Aspen 2000 and my shop told me clearly that the G5 was not an option in any configuration of Aspen or G500 system. Trek Lawler from Garmin said it was not approved as a backup for either an Aspen or G500. That said, it appears that some have been able to get a field approval from the local FSDO. I would want to see an actual signoff from the FSDO before I committed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. This first upgrade I did with my airplane 26 years ago was to put in an engine monitor. The first issue I needed to deal with in flight, one year later, was an engine problem. The monitor was invaluable to let me know what I was dealing with. We depend exclusively on that single engine working correctly and the more we know about what it is doing, the better informed we are about what action to take. With the description of the problem you provided, I'm willing to bet you would have been able to see if the issue was a single plug or a whole magneto failing. I posted a thread back in the Fall about a problem I saw on my engine analyzer. It was one in which the analyzer provided the data and Paul on this site quickly pointed out what I was dealing with - multiple and inconsistent spark plug failures in the same cylinder. I would recommend you consider putting one of these on your lists of needs. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  11. And oh, as for Stinky Pant's comment about free admission to the show; it's FREE to anyone that flies in. And as for the free hot dog and hamburgers, that courtesy of me and Mrs. Marauder. No one will ever miss Bertha. Back to work. Grind, grind, grind... If any of you are coming, in addition to the hot dog and hamburgers, I'll have water, diet coke, diet Pepsi and Gatorade. There are vendors here for desserts and other foods. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  12. For those of you flying in, be aware that up to 10,000 people may see your landing. They will be behind barricades but I will make sure a number of them have scoring flash cards to help in the scoring process. I will make sure the parking attendants will be looking for Mooneys and to let me know you are there. My hangar has a view of the final approach and I will be monitoring unicom Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. And I need an accurate headcount. Mrs. Marauder will be awfully upset if I need to raid the neighbors freezers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. If you are talking about the 650, the knobs still can be used to dial in frequencies and identifiers. Unless the turbulence is really bad, I am able to use the touchscreen most of the time but do occasionally resort to using the knobs. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
