I had a C-85 engine built for my J-3 and had the excellent C-65 engine removed and stored Feb of this year. I am selling the C-65 engine, with around 300 hours since major, and the Sensenich prop that was on it. This is a first class engine and prop, complete and ready to install on your aircraft. All logs and records come with it. The engine is at the aircraft/engine shop in Bartow, FL. E-mail or call if you are interested and I will provide contact information for the shop. I would rather sell the engine and prop together. You won't be disappointed with this engine.

I'm guessing you meant to say it's an A-65 engine.

I'd second that guess. No such thing as a C-65 engine.

C'mon guys, we all know what engine he's referring to. No different than calling an R-670-5, a Continental "C-220". Seems someone is always quick to jump on anyone who refers to an A65 as a C65. GUP

I think we all mention it because, in an ad, it throws doubt on the validity of the other information incorporated into the ad, thereby making it harder to sell the engine.

Could be important when talking about the 75 hp Continental to get the A or C applied correctly...Different legal props ?

220hp Continentals are W-670 according to Continental, no? ;D

"The Continental R-670 (factory designation W-670) was a seven cylinder 4-cycle radial aircraft engine produced by Continental displacing 668 cubic inches and a dry weight of 465 lb (211 kg). Horsepower varied from 210 to 240 at 2200 rpm. This engine was used on many airplanes in the 1930s and 1940s. The R-670 was widely used in the PT-17 Stearman primary training aircraft of the U.S. military." Janes

Proves my point (I think). Referring to an A-65 as C-65 is not uncommon and one shouldn't be criticised for doing so. ;) GUP
