    DA 150 / 170... same size?

    Hi guys... I just have a quick question... mostly out of curiosity at this point.

    I am buying a nice used Trueworthy Pitts 12 that has a DA 150 in the nose currently. What i am wondering is if I ever decided to "upgrade" would a DA 170 bolt right on in place of the 150 or is the length, mount pattern etc different?

    That's it for now!

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Hi Scott,

    Yep, I went from a 150 to a 170, other than changing the headers (150 are oval at the exhaust port, 170 are round), it was a direct bolt in

    Hey Bill!

    Good to know! Thanks for the quick reply ... Can you tell I am at work and working hard? LOL

    How ya been? Sounds like we have both come a long way in our taste for planes since I sold ya that Goldberg Ultimate a few years back! Ha Ha

    I can't wait to get my hands on this thing... it will be BY FAR the biggest, nicest plane I have flown.

    What do you have the 170 in?

    Talk to ya soon!

    Thanks again,

    Scott

    Hey Scott,

    Work, what's that....

    My 170 is in a 40% Carden Cap232

    One thing is the 170 is a bit lighter and in a short coupled plane like that bipe, you may need to rebalance it
