I ran across this beautiful motor and just had to put my hands on it. I can see my teeth in the piston skirt looking through the exhaust ports. Never been anywhere near an airplane. The foam packing had begun to degrade so I replaced it for shipping. Compression is as new from the factory. I read up a bit on these engines and this one appears to be circa 1989 ish. I`d love to put it in my Stinson project but it`s a ways off for me. Somewhere somehow this thing needs to be flying.
