The engine is a bit of an enigma, I was told over 2000 hours on it, compression is good, and a much smaller prop was on it, so I am taking it easy until I can review the engine oil and screens for metal. A oil analysis will occur as well. I need to confirm I an flying a safe plane then I can start spinning it up and if it is the right plane for me.
And if anyone would like a metal prop with a clock from Ray Cote (he knows how to spin an engine) let me know, proceeds to benefit EAA Chapter 14.
