I have a MA4-SPA Carb in good working order with ~1000 hours SOH, all ADs complied with.

Can anyone give me an idea what it is worth and where best to advertise it?

Thanks,
Glenn

Glenn, what's the part number on the data plate? With that much time I'd say it's a core price. Check with Aviall or your parts supplier of choice and see what they charge for core exchange on similar carbs.

Thanks

Pretty common for many O320"s. You can buy one for about $1000 and the last one I had rebuilt was $750 so core is worth about the difference? Does it have the latest "blue" float? The float AD's on these things is about as convoluted as it can get.


I had a O435 carb on my O290. When I had it rebuild she found an "antique" brass float that was probably original. It was an accident waiting to happen. But by the latest AD it was legal. I replaced it anyway
