    A prop to really use the O-360's power is usually heavier as well. My Mac 1A200/DFA8243 at 44# was ten more than a 1A175/GM8242. And that's weight as far forward as it gets.

    Both work until cold weather occurs. Then the Marvel can continue to function while the Stromberg may hesitate. It's not if but when in my experience with two Strombergs and many Marvels.

    Just wondering what was making it fly off center and yaw left. Most folks put up with it and it's good you chose not to. Something made the change from wheels to floats.
