  1. David S (@Sabremech) is trying to get a 2nd batch of the infamous CNC'ed Johnson Bar up/downlock blocks run again for us. The more orders, the better. If you want one or a set, please post your intentions below (IE 1x downlock only/set of 1x down and 1x uplock). I will be working on a payment system and once we have that squared away, I will be gathering contact and shipment information from everyone. Lead time is 6 weeks from the time we place the order. 30 or more Uplock - $233.37 each ----->40 or more Uplock- $205.36 each<------ 30 or more Downlock- $265.86 each
  2. I'm posting this to the General list because it deals with both Vintage and Modern Mooneys. When Pablo Casals was 93 years old he was asked why he continued to practice his cello three hours a day. His reply: "Because I'm beginning to notice some improvement." I've flown my 201 since 1993. I'm on the other side of 1,000 hrs. PIC. I keep at it because I may, in fact, be starting to notice some improvement. But I've led a sheltered life in the sense of flying other Mooney models. No turbos. No 6 cylinder engines. And on the other end, no Johnson bar gear and hydraulic flaps.
  3. Nice day, took the Moonship for a spin. First landing the J-bar didn’t feel right, but it was solidly in place and withstood solid tugs on downwind, base and final. Still hear bit chin’ Betty on landing, and the gear unsafe light was on. Damn, I’ve danced this dance! Flew to my second destination, this time decided to do it right, get the gear safe light. Couldn’t do it with one hand. Hit the autopilot, got both hands on the top of the bar and pulled up with all I had. Got a nice click and a gear safe light. Flew home with the gear hanging out. What really honks me off is the panel mount
  4. The dohicky that holds the Johnson bar in the panel is getting really sticky. It was all I could do to get the J-bar seated flying last night. The whoodanger (really, I don't know what to call it other than the Johnson bar holder, which sounds more like a lady of rentable virtue) is quite new, it was replaced last year. I'm getting concerned, its getting harder and harder to seat the J-bar and lock the gear down. Any ideas?
  5. I am a few hundred hour private pilot with 90% of my time in tail draggers. For the first few years it was just my wife and I but now the family has grown. We are a small family and are considering a short bodied Mooney. I am wondering if anyone local (PTW, SE PA) would be willing to show their aircraft or perhaps even give a demo flight. I would be willing to pay for the fuel of course. If anyone is available or interested please PM me or reply below. Thanks! edit: I neglected to mention, I will be in SE FL in March if anyone is willing and able to show or fly down there as wel
  6. I'm doing transition training in my new to me '68 C and have a gear issue. A reputable MSC mechanic in GA who is also an experienced pilot and CFI did the pre-buy on it. He subsequently did work on the gear that included replacing all biscuits, which were '68 original, as well as changing a corroded nose gear spindle and bearings. Afterwards he operated the gear on jacks and also flew it himself - apparently the gear worked fine. I've flown it twice now while getting instruction from a senior Mooney instructor and former C model owner. I have no issue pulling the gear up- surprisingly
