    Perhaps notoriously was too strongly worded but it has been an issue over time, most recently experienced with a Cessna 150. It just didn't like partial power (15-1900 RPM) in the winter.

    Go for it, several years ago I bought a pair of slicks with 26hrs since new for $900. They were pressurized 6-cyl mags so maybe not as desirable as a 4300.

    Ok, thanks. This airplane has a PA-18 cowl but I'm not sure what STC was used as he hasn't brought me the logs yet. I may have to look into changing baffles.

    Another trick is to copy the timing mark to the front of the ring gear with a thin sharpie or pencil. Then you can look through it to the top of the crankcase while bumping the prop through.
