Default CC-340 Engine, 2019, 132hrs SNEW, 0SOH---SOLD

Hi All,

I have an engine that I ended up with that is now for sale - SOLD!
It has 132 hrs since new, but 0 hrs since complete teardown, inspection & repair/ovh at Aerosport Power. You probably know this is a terrific lightweight engine that works well on many RV's.

Here are the details:

*ECI CC340, 180hp, fuel injected, dual LSE Ignitions. This is an experimental engine, not certified.
*Conical Mount.
*Originally sold to and flown on an RV-8 in 2019. The aircraft suffered a non-stoppage prop strike last year and was sent off to Aerosport Power in BC for a complete teardown and IRAN.
*Engine was inspected & repaired at a cost of over $10K, which included four new cylinders, new conn rods, lifters, new bearings and more (can provide Aerosport work order for your review).
*The engine has not flown since and is sitting in the shipping crate here in our conditioned facility.
*Hollow crank that is plugged currently for a FP prop.
*Includes dual LSE Ignition System.
*90 Degree Oil Filter.
*Original log from new.
*No other accessories included.

If you're interested, please contact me off list via PM, phone, email, etc.. As usual with anything we sell, this is a first come first serve deal. As a comparision, "new" ones are currently over $42K.

Cheers,
Stein

Stein's doing it wrong. Should chuck in a free engine when you buy a T-shirt. Afterall, I didn't pay a cent for my brand-new OX-340 when I brought it. Not a brass razoo. Mind you, I did shed a tear about spending $30,000 for an ECI baseball cap!

This is pretty close to what we have been running in our RV-9A and it's a sweet little thing. Great fit for a 2-seat RV and you know it's coming from Stein so there's no games being played here. Someone needs to pick this up before I grab it as a spare :-D

After much arm twisting, we have agreed to throw in not just a T-Shirt, but a hoodie as well as free delivery anywhere in the lower 48! Also, you're welcome to stop by an inspect in person anytime here at our shop (KFBL).

So this begs the question - what engine IS going on the S-21 now?!?!?

Just out of curiosity, why were such low time cylinders replaced due to a prop strike?

I have no idea - you'd have to as Aerosport about that. I trust they must have had a reason, maybe it was due to the prop strike, and maybe it was just something to have covered by insurance or requested by the original owner while the engine was torn down (I don't know - but it happens). There was a lot replaced that I wouldn't have guessed would be core to a prop strike, but then again they listed it all as a "prop strike rebuild kit" on the work order.

The original owner also had them add a 90 degree oil filter kit and a few other things, so perhaps it was just a simple request by the original owner.
