.IT SEEMS THAT I HAVE TO MAKE ANOTHER UPDATE.
THIS IS IN RESPONSE TO A DIFFERENT THREAD ABOUT A PRESUMED SALE. The gentleman that created that new thread said he would make sure that everyone knew about his belief that he had entered into a sales agreement for this DEBONAIR. WE DID NOT! :beechslap: :hammer:

I have told everyone that called me about the Debonair that it is out of annual, and that I have only flown it about three hours a year for the last two years.... except after I was breaking in two new cylinders. (25 hours in circles around the airport) I also told everyone that there was a time where the tank vent was bent backwards and thus created a suction that drained the right tank and collapsed the bladder. An IA reposition the bladder and snapped it in back in place. Ever since that time I have had at least three times where a fuel Injector had partially plugged up with tiny little black particles. My JPI engine analyzer told me one of the cylinders was running lean. I therefore landed and had that injector cleaned. It happened twice again on the ground. Each time the injector partially plugged up it was a different injector. I had contacted Eagle about what to do with the bladder.
There was also another bladder company I had talk to. One of them said to use MEK and wipe out the inside of the bladder and if a lot of little black pieces came out to take the bladder out and have it rebuilt...if only a few particles were present the damp MEK would help “heal” the Bladder. I have not done that. I have drained the tank as was suggested and found a few particles came out of the drain. I drained the tank until my arm was exhausted. Many many times. I have found no more black particles but they may still be in the fuel system somewhere. The front copper fuel filter was replaced .One IA said the whole fuel system should be removed and cleaned before the airplane flies again. Another IA said the system will clear itself if the bladder is not decomposing. I ordered the gaskets for the bladder reinstall but I never got an IA to help me and therefore the bladder was never wiped clean with the damp MEK rag but the new gasket is there for the next IA. I was told that the fuel system “cleaning” would cost about $3000.
All that said...the plane was being sold where is as is ...with no annual..I was not in the frame of mind to find all the information that was being asked of me and much less interested in doing an annual. At the time I had other issues in my life that I was dealing with. The very first man that called me sent Larry to do a pre buy inspection. Agreeing to do ( or allow ) a pre-by inspection in no way committed either one of us to buy or sell the airplane. Larry‘s client and his friend ( an attorney by the way) Took his time making a commitment to buy the airplanes. In the meantime another gentleman said he wanted to buy the airplane and said he was really very interested and had pre-paid for a pre-buy inspection. He ask if a particular day was OK. In the meantime several other pilots had contacted me about buying the airplane. I told them that I really wanted to sell it to a local pilot and also told them that I had been talking to a few others already. I was offered $5000 more for the Debonair. I called some of the other pilots about the offer. As it turned out the FIRST gentleman (lawyer) that sent Larry to review the airplane decided he would take it at $70,000. Because he was the first to have a prebuy I agreed to sell it to him even though he was not the first to offer $70,000. So several days after he had the airplane inspected, he also made an offer to buy the Debonair at $70,000 and wrote up a contract that we both signed. It is a 30 day escrow. The sales price did not include an annual. I gave him (and Larry) the details about the fuel problem. He is having an IA come and do the annual.
This post is being made first of all to communicate to everyone that the DEBONAIR has some issues that would make it unsafe to fly. Second that I have only flown it three hours a year for the past two years or so... third that agreeing to a prebuy does not mean I agreed to sell it. I only agreed to sell this airplane to one man. There are no emails or text messages to the contrary.
Sorry you all have to read this....but a friend of mine suggested I post this. :sad:
