Had 6 new Superior cylinders left over from Cessna 170B project. Looks like the fellow who bought the ac isnt able to come up with futher money to buy the cylinders. At this time I'm thinking of using 4 of the 6 new Superior cylinders on the C 90 that I'm building for my J3. That will leave 2 extra new cylinders to peddle. Pistons, pins, rings, gaskets included.
Also, the old Continental cylinders mic standard everywhere -- they are 15 over and have 15 over pistons with less than 800 hours. Serviceable. These should be good for a few hundred hours before needing work. These cylinders will fit C 85, C90, O 200, C 145, 0 300 engines. The 85 takes different pistons....I think.
Cash or a propeller for the C 90-8 on the J3 is what I'm looking for.

Prices? Let's see if anyone wants any.
New...I would like $650. Used 4 they would be about $200 shipped. Each.
Someone wants them with new springs and locks I can do that if they send the springs.
And specify what series engine so I can put in the correct 2 springs or correct 3 valve springs.
I will check the rocker bosses per the AD on the used cylinders if someone is serious.

The 2 extra new Superior cylinders are gone. Anyone needing C 85, C90, O 200,... cylinders (NEW) can buy as many as you want from Airpower 877 278 2210 for about $750. Shipping is free. Several other places....check display adds in Trade a Plane ... are about the same.
My 4 used C 90 cylinders are as removed. If I didn't have new cylinders I would put new springs and rings in the used ones and put them back on for a few years / 200 hours or so.
If anyone wants any of these I will dye check the rocker bosses first per the AD.
