Default A happy outcome

I actually bought the IO-360 for my RV-8 off of Ebay!

Insane! you would think, but a phone call and a little background on the seller convinced me he was a stand-up guy, and the engine was sound. 250 trouble-free hours later, I still am happy with my find.

Amazing how unscrupulous someone could be to try to sell a wreck as an airworthy airplane.
