    Reduced Price to Sell! $900 steals this gem and you won't even go to jail!

    Low time 3W157CS for sale. Parting out my big 40% airplane, simply don't have time to fly any more. Backing down to 25-50cc class for more casual flying.

    This is a beautiful engine in very good condition. It has approximately 100-110 flights on it, barely broken in at this time. Never crashed. Runs like a scalded dog, really an extraordinary powerhouse. Vertical pullout was ballistic in my heavy 43lb TT-TOC Yak 54.

    Lots of added value accessories: I am including 32 inch 3W-3D prop I have mounted, and a 32-12 wood prop,a new CF Spinner and a new factory intake snorkel (which really improved performance).

    Cold starting has always been real sweet, with couple flips choke on, pop, choke off, crack the throttle, starts in 2-3 more flips. Idle is very smooth and ticks over at a real low rpm. At WOT in level flight this beast really rips the 3W prop. Throttle response is awesome, no hesitation, no lag, and no loading up at extended idle. Never a single dead-stick. 3D performance has been flawless.

    This is an awesome value. Engine only is $1950 retail new. I have been very pleased with this engine, and I hate to see it go. It's just sitting, and that's a waste. This engine easily has thousands of flight left in her. :thumbsup:

    Ha Ha ... douh!

    I'm only asking $900. It's worth a hell of a lot more, but I realize the luxury of a hobby is low on the list of priorities in today's economy.
