Default Got my engine!!!

My new Mattituck IO360 was delivered Monday to my local airport where I had it scoped for confirmation that all was well. It passed their inspection and was then loaded in my Sienna van. Yes an engine in a crate does fit in a minivan. Now I just have to figure out how to get it out. For probably the last year I have been on barnstormers and other sites looking for an engine. Not happy with the used selection and the prices I was seeing I decided to just dip into the savings and snatch this one up when it was listed on VAF. It's weird not having to check sites every day for an engine. Can't believe I actually have one now!!!

Congrats on the engine.

Wise to have it scoped, just in case.

May I suggest you look into the Pmag paperwork, and see if the software needs updating? As I recall, the ad said the engine had been in storage for a few years.

Default Excellent!

Thats a nice looking engine. Already has the angle oil filter adapter and dual PMags, nice. Can't tell, is it forward facing induction?

Thanks Mike,
Before I bought I contacted the Pmag guys and they said I should send them in for updating. I'll wait until a little before first engine start because who knows how many updates there will be by then.

Darin,
Yes it is forward induction. This is exactly the engine setup I was hoping to get except for the 9.0 compression pistons. My beautiful 3 blade Catto prop will mate well with this!!! I'm basically going to copy a lot of your FF since I'm using your old prop and going to go with the James cowl too.
Dave

Probably too late for me, but just curious to what changes are needed for the 360 over the 320 in a -9?
