    Parts For Sale Cleaning out the hangar MM1, O-320

    I still have the engine. I took some pics this weekend and it is an O-320A first run conical. Apologies I couldn't remember all about it since it is in a friend's hangar. No mags, but it does have the fuel pump and carb, along with a brand new starter, alternator, filter adapter, and oil cooler...

    50 years without complete overhaul

    I agree with Dothetime. It needs to be overhauled. It has to do with the crankshaft part number I believe. I can't remember which one it is, but I know of a guy that took a crankshaft out of his O-200 meant for his Cassutt project purchased way back (I mean from the early O-200 days-you should...

    Parts For Sale Cleaning out the hangar MM1, O-320

    It is the single seat. Dana, I am not at home until tomorrow, but I got it 3 or 4 years ago from a guy that pulled it slightly before TBO and installed an O-360 in his RV-4 if I remember correctly. He was in Sisters, Oregon. I don't believe it was pickled, but we are both in dry climates.

    Parts For Sale Cleaning out the hangar MM1, O-320

    I have a Midget Mustang Project with the fuselage bones completed and the wings ready to close along with the plans. The dihedral is set, but the wing attach points still need the final ream to fit the bolts. Bolts are included. There is kit support from Mustang Aero. This particular one is to...

    Airplane plans inventory

    One of the Hummel Bird plans is the version sold now (or was in the early 2000's) and the other is the WIndwagon conversion I believe. I haven't got them out for a while though. I can go through them this weekend if you are interested. The conversion I will keep. The Knight Twister is my...

    GP-5 or Polen Special similar designs.

    Those 400 MPH laps...the majority on do that for just those 400MPH laps. Everyday flying would be a no go pushing engines like that. My Cassutt with the O-200...I push 2800 cruise. That is where the least vibration is-but it's 50 over the factory red line. Some owners don't like doing that.

    GP-5 or Polen Special similar designs.

    Lancair Legacy? How about a Turbine Legend.? If money is of no object, Epic? There is one two hangars down from me. One mission...High, fast, burn lots of gas...the owner can afford it. I like the Rocket...Next for me is a MM1 with a 320. A Polen Special would be a stretched MM1 O-320 with...

    Lycoming O-290G Core for sale $800obo

    I got a better look tonight. I'll attach a couple of pics. I moved the board on the prop flange and it did have compression. There is no data tag-the 4 rivets for it are on the front of the pan. The oil pan has some cooling fins. I had heard this may be a pre-war c model. Anyway, it may be a...

    Varnish under steel fittings

    I've been looking as much as I can for the last couple of days for this...is it correct practice to varnish under the steel fittings in wings (strut attach brackets for example) or to leave it bare and just varnish the structure afterwards? Second question-in a wing restoration, when removing...

    Cassutt - looking for anyone who knows anything about it

    I am guessing right around the plans date it was started. The wings are the oldest part. Plans date 9-95.
