I’ve got a winter project and Bill Pancake’s STC to go from an A-65-8 and get 20 more horses and a push button starter to boot. I’ve pondered this for a while and stumbled on a barn find of a low time engine. However it’s got no logs but I’ve no reason to doubt the credibility of the seller. I’ve scoped it and all looks well. My plan is to replace the pushrod tubes with those by Real Gaskets, do away with the generator, install new ignition system, starter, and prop. Upon further inspection I’ll make determination about pulling cylinders but as of now I’m considering leaving it be. I’m in no hurry to remove my “leaky pushrod tubes” A-65 that runs flawlessly and continually makes great power. Worst case scenario, I build a stroker 85 out of it with zero time fresh logs.
