I had a problem where my carb was fowling the
plugs bad, to the point where the next start up failed the
mag test. I pulled the carb apart and thoroughly cleaned
the passes related to the idle mixture area. Seems if a
tiny hole gets plugged in the idle needle then the carb
pumps fuel into the mixture circuit.
So what I thought was fun today was... called in to
land 8 miles out. got a right downwind for RWY 18 (9730
feet long). The wind was a 12K left crosswind (my
personal limit is 15K). Then was cleared to land #2
behind the Airbus on final. Gota hate that. So my plan
is to stay high, way over his wing tip turbulence. I
was planning on landing long anyway as the taxiway to my
hangar is at the end of this long runway.
So I turn base after the Airbus goes by and I'm way
high. All the VASI lights are white. The Airbus lands
and I note where he touched down. The tower tells me to
do an S-turn. Then the tower clears a Cherokee for take
off. I see the Cherokee sitting on the numbers and
think to myself...this isn't going to work out. After a
couple of really slow S-Turns (I'm at 90 mph), I see the
Cherokee making some progress getting off the runway.
The Tower tells me to land long. I hear the tower tell
whoever is following me that it's going to work out as
I'm landing long and he needs to keep us only 3000'
apart! I get back into landing mode and make a good
landing and hard braking to make the turn off that I
need to make. Never a dull moment at KPIE!
Back at the hangar I do a runup to check the mags and
everything looks great. Hopefully my plug fouling is
