0-360 conversion

0-360 conversion

Has anyone ever installed an 0-360 in a 1963 172-D or nearby year?

Re: 0-360 conversion

The best I can do is a 1973 C172M. It was a great conversion by PennYan Aero. I later added long range tanks.

It should not be too difficult.  You will need the STC.  You will have to change the engine mount (from Continental bed to Lycoming dynafocal).  New baffling and maybe changes to your cowl.

Re: 0-360 conversion

Our flying club's 172M is due for a major next year and I'm trying to persuade them to upgrade to the 180HP. Have you had any disappointments  with the insallation? We already have the 50 gallon tanks.

Rick,
I am very interested in the IO-360 conversion you are putting on your C-175.
You may also want to put this information out to those on the C-175 website  http://cessna175.net

Re: 0-360 conversion

Guess I should have addressed my question to Brad.
Is the IO-360 a turbocharged engine?  I fly a Seneca II and it has a TSIO-360.  Excellent engines with very little problems.

Re: 0-360 conversion

I was referring to a  continental 0-360  as  a 172  Hawk  SP  caugh my  eye  in september and i noticed it had that  large engine on it . MY  1963  Skyhawk is now  ready for  an overhaul and i was wondering which would be the most cost effective:  a regular 0-300  overhaul  or an 0-360 with more power?

Re: 0-360 conversion

Avcon Conversions has an O-360 for model years 1962 and forward.  So does AirPlanes.  PenYan may as well.  The conversion makes one heck of a difference.  There are three skyhawks on my field that have conversions, all of different STC, all are different years.  I'm aware of a couple of C172G (1964) that have Avcon conversions.  They are more economical to fly than a C182, don't have quite the performance, but are still very good.  You'll not go fast because a C172 has an amazing amount of drag.  You will get off the ground right quick, however, and climb at a respectable 1000 to 1400 fpm.

Re: 0-360 conversion

The Avcon conversions go back to the first 172's, as I am now the happy owner of a 59, Lycoming 360 with the Hartzell constant speed prop.  This conversion was done in 1980.  Only disadvantage I can see is I don't think the early ones have any kind of gross weight increase available, unlike the later 172's.  I'd ask questions to the seller of the kit/stc on whether the 62 would qualify or not for the gross weight increase.

Any help will be appreciated, Noel

Re: 0-360 conversion

I have recently purchased a 1960 with the 0360 Lycoming conversions and STOL mods.  I weighed the aircraft and discovered it has a very forward CG, with pilot and co-pilot it gets worse.  It still has the G-25 battery in the stock location.  Do you know of any STC or of someone who has changed the battery location to aft of the luggage compartment.  My aircraft needs more elevator authority.

Thanks,
Terry

Re: 0-360 conversion

Hi Brad, Question about the 175 you are converting.  Might it be a 1962 175C w/go-300E?  I am looking for a prop that was only put on that model and is the only one that will work.  Prop is McCauley, 2A31C21 w/ 84S blades.
