In response to several inquiries with different questions, I am posting this additional information.
Aircraft Model #: M-II-48 Original Owner: The original owner was located in Manning, South Carolina and worked on the fuselage of the aircraft. The next owner, John Mihalia, located in Wichita Falls, TX, purchased it from his friend (the original owner) and completed the center section and fitted the wings to the aircraft and fitted the skins to the wings. This purchase was made six years ago. John Mihalia was a head supervisor for the construction of bombers during WWII and taught men and women working in the factories how to rivet the planes together and manufacture them. He has built three Thorp T-18s which he sold about nine years ago and all have flown perfectly with no problems. He is now working on a Cyclone 180 which is almost completed. Needless to say, his workmanship is excellent and unquestionable. The kit was sold to me in November of 1999 at which point I helped close out the wings and begin construction of the canopy. Shortly thereafter, 9/11 occurred and since then, very little work on the plane has been done to date. Wings: As stated the wings and center section were constructed by John Mihalia. The leading edges are straight. Canopy: T-18 rollbar for a Thorp T-18 Canopy Plans or Kit Built: Aircraft is built from plans, back then there was not much in the way of kits Engine:
Model #: Lycoming O-320-D2J L-13834-39A
TT: 2001.3 hours
TBO: 2000 hours
Engine History: The aircraft was bought from Bobby Osborne. This is a corporation located west of Fort Worth, Texas that sells hundreds of engines. It came off of a Cessna 172 for a 180 H.P. conversion. I believe the aircraft was a CAP airplane in Arkansas.
Accessories: Engine includes slick mags, nothing needs to be done to the mags. Also starter, carburetor, vacuum pump, and brand new alternator.
Overhauls: None yet. This is the first time run out for the engine. Jugs are in good shape. No top or cylinder work done.
Engine Use Plan: The engine is in good shape as you can see. Both John Mihalia's and my plan was to run the aircraft with the engine for about another 100 hours before getting it overhauled.
Fuel Configuration: Aircraft has 25 gallon header tank Self Etching Primer?: yes Prop extension for spinner: I'm about 90% sure that it is on the aircraft in the picture but possibly could be mistaken. Prop Diameter and Pitch: I honestly don't remember this information, but am having a friend look into it and get back to me since I currently live two hours away from the aircraft location. However, the prop is a brand new wooden prop still in the original packaging.
