    Never run. in original crate.

    Will let it go for $600. I paid over twice that, with shipping. I just want to get it out of the garage.

    Pick up only, or arrange and pay for your own shipping. Shipping weight is 300 pounds.

    PM me if you are interested.

    Last time I shipped a small package, it cost me a fortune. I can’t imaging the cost to ship an engine given how much shipping costs have gone up.

    True. IIRC it cost me $400 shipping when I got it, and that was several years ago!

    I'm an hour from you. What is the real weight on an airplane install? I see a range and it seems heavy but need to know a specific weight if you have it. Thx.

    I believe it is around 120 pounds ready to fly, but will have to look. Depends on if you have the starter or not. It is supposed to be easy to prop start---low compression. Some users also replace the oil pan with a homemade one.

    One recommendation is to replace the carb. The original one is made for fixed speed. With the right carb, or a fuel injection mod you might get 45-50 HP out of it.

    There is a Yahoo Group for it, but I haven't seen much activity from it lately.

    Ok, thanks. I watched Lester's video so have a better idea of performance, etc. I'll think it over.

    Check out the ETLB, East Tennessee Lonsome Buzzards, if you haven't already. There are threads there on these engines, with and without redrives, used on mini maxes. Might find some answeres.
