MORE TBO QUESTIONS
Thanks group for the many intelligent replies about going past TBO.
Now here’s a harder one. The Lycoming lead time is running a full year. That said, please share why (!or why not) it makes sense to buy a 1000 hour i0-360 from a reliable dealer like Wentworth? Provided of course it comes with impeccable logs and whatever event caused the event was NOT a prop strike resulting in sudden engine stoppage. Again logs must be impeccable.
One A&P sez it’s a reasonable move and another sez no way Jose.
Remember Mike Busch speaks about infant mortality in brand new engines up to about 200 hours…so that’s no guarantee either.
Awaiting opinions please and has ANYONE here ever purchased a used Piston engine and please share your experience if you would ever do it again.
You guys Rock.😀
