Asking $9000. I replaced this engine being sold with the engine I bought here:

http://www.biplaneforum.com/showthread.php?t=15881

In the process I removed the Bendix fuel servo, flow divider, fuel injectors and high pressure fuel pump to switch the "new" engine from carbureted to fuel injected. This engine comes with no fuel delivery system. You could argue that it is therefore no longer a IO-360-B4A but I have to call it something :D. To add to the confusion I also transferred the mags to the new engine (after having them overhauled). So shipped with THIS engine will be the Bendix S4LN-21 mags (both with impulse couplers) that came bolted onto that other "new" engine. Likewise for the new low pressure fuel pump that is included here. If the owner wishes to reinstall a fuel injection system he will need to purchase a high pressure fuel pump. Also included are a B&C lightweight starter, oil cooler and serviceable ignition harness. The mags and starter worked well enough to make a "proof of life" video for the "new" engine that I purchased. Logbook is complete. Solid crank. Last compression check from June 2017 was 77/78/77/78. Engine ran great at the time of removal in November. TT 1935. SMOH 1131..

So this one is no good for a constant speed, or does it just have a non drilled flange? I can't tell if that is a plug in the crank.

Jack....this might be just the ticket. Sell your io-320 as a core after you get this and would be a pretty cheap option?

I considered it when I saw it on BS. "Cheap" is relative and I had no luck selling the IO320.

BTW, I suspect the metal is the cam. As soon as the weather breaks my plan is to take it apart and if it is the cam/tappets maybe fix it?

How do I find out what my cam part # is? There was a reconditioned cam/tappets offered for $800.....I don't want to buy the wrong cam?

Thanks,

Jack

This is more than a shameless push to the top. I added a link to the engine log.

I deleted me this time. Not too long ago we used to have a delete function but somehow it got....deleted.....so now when anyone messes up or for any other reason decides to change their mind on a post they have to put ''delete'' or a minimum of three characters to be able to post a no post. Before, you just hit the ''delete'' window and poof, it went into infinity and no post would ever show up. Now you have to live with the stark proof that you did in fact make a mistake and there is no way to hide that failing on this particular forum....the horror, the horror......
