    Prop Strike and SB96-11A TSIO 360 GB

    Thanks for all your advice. I made a mistake as the engine is an LB. I dont own the plane but was looking at a purchase. Insurance would not be involved as tha plane has changed hands twice since the prop strike. I believe that since the engine is around 1500 hours it should be regarded as run out. It was put back in service with just a dialing? Of the crank shaft an zygote ?the rest.
  3. Anyone have any idea of the cost of complying with Continental SB after Prop Strike? Prop Strike.pdf. Does this change the TBO in anyway? Prop Strike.pdf

    Thanks for your reply. The basis of my question, is the plane I am looking at has had two major overhauls at 1400 give or take a few. Presently it is about 300 from that now. If I went in that direction I was curious as to how much if any of an overhaul could be recouped if it was necessary to sell the plane. I read an article, TEST Pilot from MAPA which basically said if your looking for a M20K walk past any with the GB engine and of course this plane has a GB engine. I understand it costs money to fly, but I'd rather not waste any along the way. I didn't notice Gami injectors on your list, have you had any experience with them?
  6. I previously owned a 231 with a GB engine that was intercooled, fixed waste gate. Unfortunately I had to sell the plane after I had the engine to a level where I was happy with it. I am now looking for another 231. The question is for people who have owned GB engine, not intercooled, but with Gami injectors and the Merlyn waste gate. Did this increase you time towards Major overhaul or was 1400 to 1500 still the number. Secondly for anyone What percentage of the cost of a major overhaul can be added to the true value of the plane for resale?
