Honestly, how kinky is this aircraft? Apparently vintage Mooneys had the fuel pump fitted with a leather hood that was fed with a SCAT hose off of the doghouse for cooling against vapor lock. This may have been only FI engines. I am curious as to what this hood looked like, the one on my E disintegrated long before I got her and I just went through some detective work on an errant hose and discovered this hood thing. I can just imagine the Google results some people are going to get from this thread.
I removed my KC 295 flight computer to send to Bendix King for Bench Check. Can anyone tell me what the hose attachment to the unit is? Vacuum? Air cooling? Can the plane be flown with this unattached or does it need a plug to prevent a problem with the vacuum system?
Following all the discussion about the ice-chest coolers, I've decided I don't really need one, as I spend 90% of my time in cooler air (above 8000'). But it is really hot on the ground, and I've noticed just sticking my hand outside to re-direct the air in while taxiing is awesome. So, I've found these Kool Scoop Vents, which look like they're exactly what I need, but I'm reluctant to glue something to the window, and I'm also hesitant to lose even a couple of inches of shoulder room. Anyone have them, and love them or hate them? Thoughts? http://m.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/appages/koolscoop.php
