Default I've talked to him since posting

I've talked to Dick after posting this and talking with Mark at AeroMomentum. Dick took a Viking off his 12 to put a Suzuki on it. Its my understanding that he is flying. We are still waiting on our engine.

We bought an AeroMomentum AM15 for our Zenith CH750 but are not flying it yet.

That they have been selling these engines for over 10 years to airboat customers, where they see lots of hours and abuse, finally sold us on them.

I just saw in another forum that a guy posted a presentation by Mark Kettering at an EAA chapter, in case you're interested:

I am really impressed by his level of experience, knowledge and openness. We also thought about other engines, after Lycoming and Conti (too heavy) and Rotax 912 (too weak), the AeroMomentum came out on top.
