Ah. That puts it in perspective. Thanks. He had me worried there.

I find Ed Anderson's recent story interesting. He was visiting family in Loiusianna when his 13B developed "internal issues". He removed it, stripped and rebuilt it in his nephew's garage, then reinstalled it and flew home. Total cost - approx $220. The story begs a question, however. What caused the problem? - seems that he made an assembly mistake during the previous rebuild.

By comparison, my '64 Cherokee 160 developed "internal issues" a year after I sold it for around $12,000. The engine rebuild quote was $14,000. He walked away from it and gave the plane to the engine shop as payment for work already done.
