How To Use This Mod Section
CLICK on Illustration notations and diagram above or Mod Description below for full mod descriptions and photos.
When determining what mods are applicable for which specific model or vintage Mooney, it is important for you to understand that our Mod Menu is presented in sort of a Building Block process. Older vintage Mooney owners should also see 201/MSE and M20K/Turbo etc. sections for many more mods which may be applicable to their model Mooneys as well.
Many of the mods listed here are only applicable for pre-201's, but many other mods listed on the M20J/201/MSE Section are also applicable for pre-201's as well as other model Mooneys. Therefore, older vintage owners should also refer to the M20J/MSE Section as both sections combined constitute the bulk of the mods available for Lycoming powered non-turbo Mooneys.
Besides contacting us directly and reading the other information available within this section, we also recommend you print the Mod Menu's 3 sections for future reference later.
Note: Most every mod listed also has a Model Applicability Note.

Usually, new ailerons are also included, but you should check with us for your specific model M20. In short, this mod duplicates the stock factory Mooney OEM Original Equipment Mfg.) installation exactly, and is not to be confused with other less efficient and un-attractive (non-oem "bolt on" type) W/Tips which retain the original aileron counterweight etc. Options: Install Internal Hi-Efficiency VOR Blade antennas internally inside the Fiberglass Wing Tip Assy. (And remove the stock cats whisker VOR antennas commonly found on vert stab/tail), add: $1,995.00+/-Strobe lights or Forward Facing Recognition or the nifty additional Peripheral Quarts Landing Lights, add: $1,590.00+/-

All Mod prices herein listed are estimates as we reserve the right to change specifications, prices, and applicability without notice and upon examination of your individual specific Mooney. Damage History or previous Mods may make your aircraft non OEM and thus affect our ability to install certain mods etc. Any and all quotes therefore, are not binding until inspection is made of your aircraft and may be subject to change due to items out of our control such as hidden damage, mods, corrosion, etc.
