OT here, but why do you think that installing HC pistons is a major change?

Thanks for your input. I thought I remembered something about a significant change in performance being a major change. I will have to go read the nebulous language again. Everyone defines “significant” differently. Maybe I can hold off and wait until I want a new prop?

Walsh Cozy III projects reduced to $5K today on the Cozybuilder's list.  Previously discussed here  https://www.canardzone.com/forums/topic/21972-sales-ive-seen/?do=findComment&comment=61273

A long-EZ builder could probably buy the wings and centerspar.  The C-III wings are the same as an EZ.  I believe the centerspar is also the same, or close but check me on that.  Seller just wants to get his hand out of the jar.    [Old joke: Little boy crying, hand stuck in a jar says, "I don't want the prize, I just want to get my hand out of the jar."]  Yep, I would like to get my hand out of a BD-5 jar.  🙂

Seen on a FB page today.  Seller says it comes with a rebuilt O-320.  Good price.  In an earlier time he might have asked $20K

I'll save you guys the hassle regarding 44TJ. Enclosed Oil Report.

Lots of metal in the engine; Titanium and Tin which could be the babbet sleeves and  crankshaft, which = Complete Overhaul

The Owner knows his engine has a problem, but is still selling at too high of a price. Will only sell as De-register. Will not remove engine, etc.

Be careful.

N44TJ-180102(1).pdf

Can't see the PDF. Any other info on this one?

I tried to attach the PDF but I am byte-limited for some reason.  Anyway, it comes up OK for me.  This airplane, N44TJ, mentioned back in April '18  here.  No recent  news AFAIK.  https://www.canardzone.com/forums/topic/21972-sales-ive-seen/?do=findComment&comment=61483

Thanks. I'm going to look at it this weekend. It comes highly recommended, but I'll be doing my own assessment.

Also, I was going to buy that 80CZ. I met the seller, agreed on his asking price, and he was going to fly it to me in a couple of days. A couple days later, I contacted him to lock in the meeting point, and he had sold it to someone else. Someone else must have made him a higher offer than his asking price.

Sorry you lost that one.  Let us know what you think of N44TJ but when a seller is demanding de-registration and you know the engine has problems, it better be pretty danged cheap.  I wouldn’t drive very far to see such an airplane unless the seller understands that.  There will be others—lots of old EZ builders are aging-out these days.  Wait for the estate sale!  🙂

Well, I've learned that writing on the internet is easier than writing on a bathroom wall. The previous commenter may be 100% correct with his assessment and claims, or may be completely false and inaccurate. His oil analysis does lend some credibility, so I'll definitely give it a close look. Not buying it immediately, but will give it a good look.
