This engine was said to be down on power - about 50 hp tops...

Flew one for several years on a BL65 Taylorcraft. Nice engines but not 65 hp.

Cylinder barrels are cast iron...  Crankcase and heads are duralumin...  Cylinder jugs are made into the case half so no pulling a jug, you have to send in the case.

Continental's  parts are ubiquitous and you can still buy new cylinders.

They would not be doing you a favor if they gave you an O-145 if you ask me.

Some very good information on the small Continentals from Harry Fenton, and below is an EAA webinar featuring him.

Careful  --this information has the potential for making you into a hoarder.
