    Stroker cam profile allows more rpm than a 90, but the Stroker's reduced valve lift chokes it
    at high rpm.28 won't give anywhere near 115hp. More like 95+/- at 2750 rpm.

    The vibration isn't the fault of the mounts. You have some other issue.

    The alternator is just the opposite of 'value'.All future owners will be stuck with transponder
    and ADS-B.The 12 exhaust mods are simple and described in detail here.

    And why do you want to permanently reduce the resale value of your plane?Seems to me there are
    easier ways to skin this cat.

    "on a STC for TCDS 691"Or on the TCDSs for the J3F or J3L, as appropriate.

    Consider pulling a mold and vacuum forming them in kydex.

Hey Jim, finally got to fly my new engine from don's, running a 74-42 1b90 2600rpm on climbout at 70 mph 2350 indicated 80 mph still running my 24x11x4 seems a lot stronger than my old engine

Jim, please tell me where you got the engine mount rubber adapters that mated the O-200 to the J3 engine mount? Thanks! Bob
