I have the books with it, I'll look the total time up this weekend when I'm at the hangar. The overhaul was a field overhaul done by a mechanic at the Swift Museum when the airplane was getting rebuilt by them. The 17 hours were the ferry flight back here to the west coast, where the former owner promptly wrecked it again.
The prop strike inspection was done by Tim's Aircraft Engines in Long Beach. They're a solid shop. Engine has Millennium cylinders which I believe (but will have to look at the logs) were new 17 hrs ago. Engine got a crank, new bears, cylinder hone/rings and all the normal NDT during the prop strike inspection.
I'd also consider doing some kind of exchange for your engine if we can make the numbers work out.
