To those who are flying behind a O-200, what would one pay for a running O-200 with 2000 plus hours? Bill Weir _______________________________________________
I'm no expert but having gotten burned on one purchase I'll share my scars with you.
I'd not go more than about $3500 to $4000 and then ONLY if the crank is , at minimum, serviceable. That would be an engine with ALL accessories. If the crank is no good you have maybe $1500 in parts you could sell, if anyone wants them. If the old man I purchased from wasn't a bit senile, I'd have made an issue of it. My mistake for not doing my homework. No logs, red flag. Could be hiding a prop strike. Mine had .015 run out on the flange with a crack. It is now a training aid at the local university. If the crank is shot and they give you the engine you might come out o.k. but to purchase a $4500 crank and add your parts is not the way to start. That cramp in my wallet is still a bit sore.
