Holy Cow... I found an Engine....  A guy offered it at a Bargin Price.

I found it on Barnstormers... The guy had an ad.... But he didn't reply right away...

So I placed a "WANTED" ad ( free under 100  letters )

The next morning... the guy I wrote to made the great offer... and I bought the engine...

(  It was a 4 hr drive to Iowa.... 1/2 hr to load it and pay for it....  4 hrs back to Mpls. )

But I had other people calling me and writing me about a whole bunch of other 0-235 engines...

You might keep that in mind when "YOUR" looking for an engine....

Here's a few more pictures...

Also... He threw in the Spinner and base plate....

The engine came out of a Cessna 152   ( 1,520 hrs )

It has a Dynafocal engine mount... I like this better...

I made the dynafocal mount fit my landing gear on my Buttercup.

I bolted the gear back on the Jig , Used it to hold the engine mount in the exact position...

I tried the mount by putting it on the engine , While the engine was hanging from the rafters...

Once things fit good , Welded everything... and put the gear back on the plane...

Then mounted the engine....

Gotta Fly...

Nice! I was trying to find an O-235-L2C to do a low time engine swap for my 152 but nothing ever panned out. Maybe I should try again.

Hi Sean,
Can you just imagine how this Buttercup is going to perform with this engine..... Wow...

I've bought my Prop from Craig "Catto"..... it's a Climb Prop - 66" X 46

I should be good for LSA

Gotta Fly...
