The O-235 is/was popular on C-152, Tomahawk, Grumman Yankee. It is not as good as a O320 150/160HP from stand point of parts and obviously power. I believe the parts are more expensive for the O-235. An RV-3 with 115 HP would be fine but 150/160HP way better. Also the O-235-L2C was subject to lead fouling with 100LL.
The O-235 is super popular with the Long EZ crowd. You could sale it and get a O320....
