Default WANTED - IO-540-D4A5

Looking for a 260hp IO-540. I would prefer one that is sold as a core (is at TBO time) but will consider a recently overhauled one.

Post IO540 D4A5

I happen to have 1. It is a complete IO540 D4A5. It is from my Comanche 260B and was running when I changed it out. Oil sample was good and compressions all in the 70s. I was thinking of keeping it for rv6 project but I may never get around to it. It has about 3100 hours total 2000 on the top and was running very strong.

The engine has been off the for about a year. It was pickled when removed and lives in a crate in a heated hanger.

We have an IO-540-C4B5 that's at an engine shop now, torn apart and the cases were sent to Divco. would be happy to sell as a core instead.

I have an IO-540-C4B5. That is ready for assembly. Everything has been yellow tagged. Easy conversion to a D4A5
