Default 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!

Scott

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
