    I have the same question, but for 180s. Specifically a '55 180 with a field approved O-470R. I hear conflicting stuff about the lightweight starters on bigger bore Contis - is there a consensus?

    I love these threads so much. Erry time I lift the carpet, or lie on my back and look up behind the panel of my 66 year old aereoplane, I dream of building my own experimental super cub!

    I hate to argue - actually I love it so I will anyway. ;-)

    The C90 may makes great torque - IFF it's on a different airplane that allows full RPM. Redline on the C90 is 2475 in the J3, compared...
