Default AP .061 for trade?

Hey gang. I have an AP .061 w/box and instructions about two months old and has only had a 3oz tank ran through it for the break-in process. Still not broke in all the way as it has only had 3oz run in it.

I would like to trade for a plain .25 engine such as an OS LA 25 or similar.

I did post an ad, so excuse me for posting it here as it may not belong.

If you are interested I can send a photo and what not.

I've got a GMS .25 that hasn't been run for about 3 or 4 years. It never was real powerful, but it ran with no problems. It never got much run time. I'll go see if it will run decently and see that it hasn't got rusty inside......but let me know here if you are interested, otherwise I'll just let it hang in the rafters.

I've got a plain bearing Thunder Tiger GP.25 left over from my HoB Texan pylon racing plane. It's in great shape just collecting dust. I might even have two...or three...[&:]

Combat,
It's been a while, man! You doing alright? I've been away from the forum a while.

Yeah, that sounds great! I will even throw in a Sure Start Cox I have - brand new, but missing the needle. I can ship out in the morning if you like...

Well, once again this engine dispelled the old wive's tale about needing after run oil...it runs great after sitting idle for about 1500 days and nights in a dank barn.
Almost let it go with a Rossi carb! I forgot about doing that swap, must already be senile.
You will just have to get by with the stock carb.........[]
Run it rich in an easy to fly [light] plane. This sucker leaned out 1/2 way through the tank and really screamed with a 9x4. The 9x4 is THE prop for this engine.
