Compliments of Joe Marsala:
In my search for someone to overhaul an IO346, so far I have found 2 shops that will undertake the job. G&N quoted a price of $21,000 – $22,000; Poplar Grove Airomotive quoted $17,900. Thought I’d pass that info on to all the Continental drivers out there. I have found a nice 1965 Mouse for sale, but I’m a bit leery on the motor.
Editor’s note: There is also a good reference on the BAC website for Chuck Ney Enterprises, and for Western Skyways in Montrose, Colorado.From Bill Passinos:
I referred your querry to “Tropic Airpower Inc.” located at the Lantana
Airport (LNA) , West Palm Beach, Fl and they responded with the message
below. I know this shop to be a quality overhaul facility ( I do all my
engine work there). Please note that their overhaul price is for
“New Limits”. For further information, please contact the owner, Mark
Young at firstname.lastname@example.org
