    newbie looking at a B 19 mouse

    Almost completed my private. Scheduling my checkride now. Am looking
    at a 1974 B19 Sport with 14,000 TTAF. Those hours seem high, but is
    listed with NDH. Am I approaching the end of life cycle for major
    components? Other than looking for corrosion, what are my other major
    concerns during the pre-buy inspection?

    Thanks in advance for your comments. I like the baby beechs!

    I also have a 1974 B-19 with over 11,000 + hours TTAF, it sounds like that Beech Sport may be one with the 0-360 180 hp engine in it.
    My Sport was at one time part of the fleet of aircraft at the University of Illinois's flight school, even with that many hours, these a/c were very well maintained.
    I can't wait to get my hands on the Power Flow exhaust and the wheel pants for more power and less drag. My only problem is whether or not to paint over the school's colors, oh well maybe one day.

    I have a 10,500 hr C23 Sundowner 180. It had one owner prior to myself (government-
    run community college in Quebec), was well maintained, and NDH. It has been quite
    trouble-free. I have 1600 on the engine. Oil consumption is getting a bit high so I may
    have to consider a top, or complete overhaul, fairly soon, but it still compresses 70/80
    and above on all jugs. The only issues I had when I bought it were:

    1) some corroded brake lines; relatively minor job;
    2) new windshield...that one was not fun, $3k, but it was party my fault, I did a loop with it
    when the windshield had a stitchec crack repair; it opened up (before people yell at me, I
    have one of the rare models certified for aerobatics);
    3) very minor corrosion under the floor boards where a hose passed through a rib; I fixed
    that myself, sanding out the corrosion and applying zinc chromate primer.

    I think one issue you will probably have to face (and myself as well) is the landing gear
    donuts, if they haven't been done recently. I'm still on the original ones; so far no issues
    though.

    I do recommend a thorough pre-buy with those hours. If it's in good shape, the hours will
    work in your favour and get keep the price low. These birds are built pretty tough.

    Check for "oil cannig" on higt time airframes. We
    bought a sport with about 7700 hrs on the airframe,
    was used as a trainier. Our A&P said the tail was
    stretched from many hard landings. It really made alot
    of racket when you got close to stall speed. You could
    also check on the ground by tappping the fuselage,
    around the area where the numbers are. We were lucky
    and were able to back out of the buy.

    Airspeed is life, Altitude is life insurance.
