Re: Resell value of experimental 300S

Thanks Mark. Several have made the good point that it's much harder to find a bank willing to finance an experimental airplane vs. a certified airplane. I've seen this when trying to sell my experimental Pitts - some buyers immediately go away when they find out its experimental. That would shrink t...

Extra 300S Mods

I'd like to start a thread on mods for the venerable 300S - both experimental and certified. Hopefully those of us with certified versions can swap approved 337's. My 300S has no mods but will probably swap the battery for the Odyssey SBS J16 this winter. I have approved 337s from other airplanes. T...

What all has to change to swap a 540 to a 580 in a 300S? Does it fit in the original cowling? Different motor mounts? Has anyone done this on a 337 and kept the 300S certified? I have an L1B5D with the dreaded death mag. If converting it to the dual mags is going to cost me an arm and leg I might ju...

Little oil in filter during change

I changed my filter for the first time on my AEIO-540 on my Extra at 50 hours. No oil leaked out as I unscrewed it, and there was little oil in the filter itself. Maybe a shot glass amount of oil. I had drained the oil over 48 hours prior to removing the filter, and the filter sits in the horizontal...
