    Hello all. I'm currently in the market for a new to me aircraft. One of the possible options is a ch601 powered by a Subaru EA 81 with a Johnson redrive. I can't find any recent information about these engines and how they hold up long term. Does anyone have any experience that can help me? Should I persue this aircraft or scratch it off my list? Thanks.

    The engines are ok. Is Dave still around to support the drive?

    No. I believe he passed away.
