    Gear Switch Replacement

    And yeah, I have experience doing this. It was part of the troubleshooting we did years ago when the breaker would pop. Bought a brand new switch and installed it. Kept the old one as a spare when the new one didn’t fix the issue. There are a ton of wires to that switch and I think it would be best not to try to disassemble it. I would get a good look at the back of your switch first to make sure your replacement matches. On my F the gear switch sits high in the panel and access to it can be from above after the glareshield is removed. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

    Gear Switch Replacement

    That’s not what he said in post 6. He was referring to photo 1, the broken one. I don’t see a cotter pin on the white wheel in photo 2. This is what I am calling the set pin. Which lines up where the other one is broken. Roughly 4 threads up from the base. I have a spare gear switch at my hangar. Will look at it tomorrow and report back.

    Window replacement

    Thanks John. I’ve been leaning towards the 1/4” glass and it is good to hear it is doable on an F. Do you recall the supplier of the glass? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  4. What your describing makes sense. Those inner gear doors add more drag and I believe this is the reason the J models have a different ratio on their electric gear. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

    Gear Switch Replacement

    Anthony - that isn’t a cotter pin. It’s the remnants of the hole that a set pin was in. When the threaded part broke, it tore the shaft where the set pin resides. If you look at the second picture, you can just make out the set pin by the nut on the threaded shaft. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

    ADS-B troubles

    I’ve been using the rebate site to do the ADS-B validation. What is the public report site? I’m generating rebate codes every time I test it. [emoji1787] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

    GFC500 Update

    Does anyone know if the GFC 600 is subject to the GPS restriction? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

  10. The roll works. I typically roll out as well as in. Nice of you to join us again. Where you been hiding? We are long over due for another Mooney Fly-in. Can we make the next one someplace warm like Aruba? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

    Hoping @JerryTJ will see this thread. He has some extensive experience with transponders and might be able to help with some ideas. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

    Attitude Indicator Question

    It sounds like his budget will force him to refurb what he has. BTW - how are the ESI-500s working out? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  13. And he wants to know why no one wants to fly with him. [emoji1787] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

  15. All I can tell you is if you have human sized legs, the Bonalization technique doesn’t work. Here is a thread showing the Bonal technique and my retort to his technique. Posts 52 and 56. https://mooneyspace.com/topic/19850-oh-man-are-we-going-to-fit/?page=3 Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
