Looking to see if anyone has a set of base wrenches to fit a Lycoming 0-290 that they want to part with.
PM or email me.

Thanks, yea those will work fine. I am spending time on 16JL engine needed some TLC.
Getting close to attempting to start it. New firewall forward hoses are ordered. Once I have them installed I will be ready to start the engine. Not sure yet If I got a deal or if they did. I love the airplane. He did some really nice work. I located a A&P willing to do my condition inspection and help with the reassemble of the wings. If things keep going well another couple of months I might be ready to fly her again. I am cleaning and flushing the fuel system this weekend.

I am spending as much time as it takes to inspect, clean, lubricate check and test and learn everything that I possibly can in the airplane. Once I am sure everything is 100% I will turn the A&P loose to see if he can find anything.

I started at her nose and as I go along I am headed to her tail :)

My friends think its fix or repair daily.
So far it has been little things that are stuck, stiff showing age deterioration. I found a couple of vibration related wear issues with chaffing but nothing major. A tweak here and there took care of them.
Worst thing so far is a couple of spots on the cabanas need touch up paint and primer
I say worst because I suck at painting.
