    O-320-A1A crank

    I'm building up an experimental O-320-A1A and am in need of a serviceable crank. I'll be running a fixed pitch Catto prop. I have been calling around but it sounds like I would have better luck finding the holy grail. Anybody know of one out there?

    Have you tried Aircraft Specialty Services? Talk to Bobby. There is also someone in Colorado that I have been able to locate cranks from.

    I have not tried Aircraft Specialty Services yet. I'll have to give them a call. I did try Jesse in CO. Seems good to work with. He can get me a new ECI for $$$$$ but was hoping to not have to buy new.

    Contact Lycon Engine Rebuilds in Visalia, California. If they can't assist you then they'll point you in the right direction.

    There are several listed on EBay right now if your application works! Check your wallet, they are not cheap.

    Jerry moved. In Kansas now. 800 # might still be good tho. I know the number I had wasn't.

    I may be wrong but that probably won't stop me from arguing about it.
