170B needs more power

170B needs more power

I have a 1953 Cessna 170B which is a great flying aircraft but falls short on horsepower with the standard 145hp.  What are my options?  Is there still a 180 hp conversion available? Or do I bite the bullit and trade for a 180.

Re: 170B needs more power

I think Del-Air is the only company actively marketing a 180 HP STC for the 170. They are in Trade-A-Plane. I think it might be economically viable to do this upgrade.
