• The Biplane Forum is a large global active community of biplane builders, owners and pilots. From Pitts to Skybolts, to older barnstormers, all types are welcome. In addition to our active community, our content boasts exhaustive technical information which is often sought after for projects and maintenance. This information has accumulated over the 12+ years the forum has been in existence.

    The Biplane Forum is a private community. Subscriptions are only $29.95/year to gain access to this great community and unmatched source of information not found anywhere else on the web. We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction).

Still trying to sell the engine from my Pitts S-1S project. I have two good offers on the airframe so I really need to sell the engine. Lycoming O-360-A1D with 0 hr since rebuild with solid crank, connecting rods, bearings, reconditioned cam, divco reconditioned case, new gaskets and seals, factory new Lycoming cylinders. Includes Bendix pressure carb (orange seals), magnetos, new mechanical fuel pump, B&C lightweight starter, oil cooler. Beautiful work by Midwest Aircraft Services stored in climate controlled building. I bought a new plane so I need to sell this engine. The engine has never been installed or run since the rebuild. Located in Newton KS can ship anywhere. Questions call or txt anytime. Asking $16,000.

Pictures are here:

PS The engine is NOT subject to the new Lycoming service bulletin on connecting rod bushings.

At $16,000 sounds like a steal for someone. That less than a overhaul cost on a core

The picture link isn't working for me. Not that I'm in the market for an O-360 at the moment, but I'm curious. (I'll probably kick myself in 5 years when I find I've spent $20k on rebuilding a run-out O-320.)

AHHH!!! Ok I fixed the link to the pictures in the top post. Thanks for the heads up on that.

Yeah the folks that did the engine build do great work. Midwest Aircraft Services in Newton KS. They are currently doing an overhaul of the IO-540 out of my newer plane. Stock engine with custom paint!

Just to keep us all focused, here is the one for sale. Not quite as fancy as the yellow one shown above but still a great job by the same shop. I've got $19,000 invested in the rebuild. $16,000 is a steal. Probably the biggest strike against the engine is the solid crank so it can only take a fixed pitch prop. Still great for Pitts S-1C, S-1S, DR-107, simple RV, etc.

Solid crank would mean that it is configured similar to an O360 A4A.
