I see ads for aircraft for sale that will show engine time but with a note that it is hobbs time. 
How does one use Hobbs to determine actual engine time for overhaul?
I have often wondered it we have to do our engine run ups and magneto checks right before takeoff Most ga aircraft checklist call for this check just before take off. What is the reason. If there is plenty of space, why not do the check in the chocks before taxi to find out you have a problem before getting all the way to the runway.
