After doing quite a bit of research myself and enjoying a "high time" engine that is super reliable and checks out with oil analysis and regular inspections, there's not too much to debate any more about an engine hours indicating health.

My lower price reflects the high time on the engine. I'm a realist and know there's no way I'll get back what I put into her.

Thanks for looking.

I totally agree. If it has good oil pressure and oil analysis, i would not hesitate to fly it for many more hours.
