The heart of the beast has arrived! Custom Aircraft Engines in Palmer, AK built this wide deck O-320 B2B 160 engine for us at a significantly reduced price as their generous contribution to the 2016 Alaska Airmen Association Super Cub raffle plane.
Also, donated were Lycon port, polished and flow matched cylinders that were donated by TCM San Antonio, a Sky Tec lightweight starter, Tempest spark plugs, oil filter, and harness, B&C oil filter adapter, and TCM magnetos courtesy of A.E.R.O. Alaska.
Yet to be installed and also graciously donated are custom fabricated baffling from Airforms, Inc, a lightweight B&C 50 amp alternator, Marvel Schebler carburetor, Sutton exhaust and MT reversing governor. This bad boy should be turning the MT propeller at nearly 180 horse power!
