These two pictures show the correct way to have these connections installed. The right side had been installed incorrectly and the person  who did this had to add extra washers to make it fit. This was missed from a previous annual by another mechanic. You have to trust that these mechanics are ...

I am interested in purchasing one or the other Saratuga II TC or early Malibu and Malibu mirages to 1995, but I can't  make my mind, any owners only that have had these that can give feedbacks, pros, cons. I already know about cost of operations so please no feed back about cost of operations. ...

That is better than one that will not stop dripping or running.  I replaced both of my drains this last year.  I ...
Replaced them.  But afterwards I took the old ones and soaked them in Hoppes No 9 Gun cleaning solvent.  Look brand ...

Great Tip - wish I had thought of that!  Happy Flying!
Unless it was something simple like foreign matter stuck in the drain I wouldn't bother with trying to clean it and ...

I am looking to purchase my first airplane and the Comanche 250 seems to be a good pic.  t will be used mainly for pleasure but also some business trips up Northern CA. from SOCA.  and possibly Washington.  The years I am looking at are 1964,1965 or so at around $70,000.  Any thoughts on the is ...

My Piper is a bit long in the tooth at 77 years old, but she still flies beautifully, as evidenced by this shot from the ...

Well, mine's not 77 years old, but it's nearing 50, so it was time for new paint. Just got it back from the shop 10 days ...

Here's a reminder to be extra vigilant when pre-fighting, especially when the birds are busy with building their nests in the spring time.
Here's what I found during pre-flight one morning! Took a peek inside the cowling after checking the oil and something caught my eye. Decided to look a ...

Has anyone been successful in solving the 6 seat vs 7 seat dilemma that prevents us Saratoga drivers from using basic med?

We have a 1980 Saratoga FG with 6 seats and the club seating arrangement. However the type certificate for the Saratoga specifies 7 seats as standard with 6 as optional. ...

Hi Edward,
Unfortunately, it looks like all four variations of the 1980 Piper Saratoga would require the issuance ...
