Rockwood Shepard was in Denver this morning and very kindly drove up to my hangar at Longmont, LMO, to deliver my new engine. This was one of two he'd found. He's using his on his RV-9A, which is several years ahead of my RV-3B.
The engine is a Lycoming O-320-D2A, new and preserved, but ten years old.
The informal arrangements went very smoothly. In fact, this purchase was as simple and easy as it gets. Rocky, thanks!
Here's Santa with my new reindeer -
- And as you might guess from the boxes, it'll be a while before this motor gets to run. Good thing my Cessna 180 is available. Incidentally, it was just about 32 F in the hangar with the door open and the heater off.
