I have a used C 85 engine which I want to Overhaul and want to use the STC issued by Aircraft Specialties of Tulsa, OK. Has anyone used this STC and had good or bad luck with the results.

It replaces the Crank, Con Rods, and Pistons with O-200 parts similiar to the Don's Dream machine STC.

Any thoughts would be helpful. This is to be put back in our 1946 J-3 Cub. Also any thoughts on which Wing tank mod is best, as more fuel will be required with the C85 engine.

Any idea what a 300 hr OH time A-65 engine is worth?
