Sorry it took so long for a reply but had to get scheduled with a busy mechanic.
So the problem seems to be the prop. RPM about one hundred revs too low.
The prop is supposed to be taken off tomorrow and sent in to be re pitched.
Hopefully this will result in the increase in performance I'm looking for. Possible
lower cruise speed but improved clime performance. I'll post the results. Thanks for
your replies most helpful.

For reference, my O200 powered 415E is generally at pattern altitude (1000' AGL) by the end of my crosswind leg. At Nevada County airport, elev 3150'. That's with two medium guys on board.

Re interiors: Airtex; Skyport (they'll probably send you to Airtex); Univair

thanks for the help. today found in the prop log that the prop has been re-pitched to 48.
the rest of the checking is to be done by mechanic hopefully soon. will pass along what he comes up with.
on another note, my instrument panel has been modified over the years with various radios and an intercom
some things working and some not working hung beneath the panel ,and various replacement instruments some
not working in odd places and switches scattered about.
I'm seriously thinking about a new panel rearranging some instruments and some replaced with new , including radios.
with switches centrally located panel.
If I can get advice on how to go about this what not to do and perhaps what to do and even were to purchase
things I would appreciate it.
Also the interior is comprised of left over carpet samples and would like to replace that.

This is off topic a bit, but I took digital photos of my logs pre purchase, and it has been super handy to have them in this form. Maybe you can access them and do likewise. Ercoupes are great little planes, so once you get the climb issue solved, you'll be fine.
