I took the garbage out tonight by John Clonts
You know that life is good, when your garbage bin contains 12 empty quarts of aeroshell W100, and 6 empty MGD bottles. Today I installed the oil "quick change" valve, then went flying for 30 minutes, then changed the oil. Oh that makes it SO much easier! No safety wire, no "channeling" the oil...

Whats the deal with counter-rotating props? by Dico
Hello, We're looking into a twin and the Twin Comanche is on our list. I know that the later models have the counter rotating props -- although i don't know too much about what this means, other than its "better". We fly a mooney now and thus I don't worry about the prop -- as long as it keeps...

bad cylinder by blanche cohen
Looks like cylinder #1 on an O-360 is dying. Shop says I could get more time out of it -- good compressions, no metal, but the bottom plug is covered in oil. Since it has 2500 hours on it, I figured that it's time. So -- the big questions 1) Overhaul or buy a new one? 2) If buying a new one,...

Removing original equipment by Robert M. Gary
Is there any reason I can't remove my factory OAT and throw it out? I have a mechanical OAT gauge but would rather just use my EDM OAT gauge. The JPI says their gauge is only certified as "supplemental" but does the FAA even care if I have an OAT at all? I've been replacing the original OAT gauge...

The Lycoming 0-360 A4M in our Archer is now 2250 SMOH and we are intending to fit an exchange overhauled engine very soon. The decision to pull the engine out was easy compared with trying to decide on the engine to buy. We have a number of quotes and researched factory and field...

Prop Balancing Question by A Lieberman
Past couple of flights, found a screw that was loose on the spinner and actually lost one in flight. A&P replaced them, and said during preflight, check them. If they work their way loose again, need to get the prop balanced. Logs show no maintenance on the prop, so I am sure it's well overdue...

1 Attachment(s) Nasa Icing courses by Jim Burns
As many of you probably know, recent midwest weather has been a steady stream of low overcast, misty, and foggy days prohibiting most VFR flight and making IFR flights a spin of the icing roulette wheel. I thought it may be a good opportunity for us to review NASA's icing online...
