C-150 150 HP Conversion

Re: C-150 150 HP Conversion

gerado:

I read your post, and if I blow my medical next month, yes I'll be selling my Cessna 150/150. However, I don't think I would like to deal with the paperwork in regard to selling a US airplane to a purchaser in a "foreign" country. (I'm in Texas, grew up in Texas and Mexico isn't a foreign country to me... it's just the red tape associated with selling "out of country."

Here is a link to pictures of my Cessna on my Flickr account
http://www.flickr.com/photos/southwestu … 841204428/

It has leather interior (LEAGAL) with a burn test done...
Metcoaire wingtip (anyone putting Droop tips on a Cessna should be tarred and feathered)
Vortex Generators
(I spent around $6,000 on a new Narco flip-flop transponder and a new Narco flip-flop radio)
New carpet (also legal, Airtex)
Chrome valve covers (that cost me $300)
New silicon baffle seals
Fairly new battery
New Kevlar steering rod boots
Fairly new wheel discs, anti-corrosion, not plain steel
A bunch of other things.

I've owned this airplane going on 5 years.

Won't sell, unless I fail my medical.

I have a number of other pictures taken during the first annual when all the new stuff was done, I can add to my Flickr account, if anyone is interested.

Last, my shortest landing has been 300 feet on the grass strip on my farm, into a 12 MPH wind. The Vortex generators are incredible.

I can be reached through my Flickr account, "SOUTHWESTusa" where I have many dozens of aerial pictures I've shot from this Cessna.

Re: C-150 150 HP Conversion

EXCITING NEWS...

I passed my medical. Had to take an EKG and a ton of bloodwork tests and ask my family doctor to submit a medical history to the flight surgeon, but I passed. The flight surgeon sent the paperwork to the FAA and unless they have a burr in their pants, I'll keep flying for another 2 years and I don't think I'll be selling my Cessna 150/160. (Unless the wife has other plans...)

Re: C-150 150 HP Conversion

Hello RSB,
I am interested in buying or trading my 1958 Cessna 182 for your 150/160hp  Cessna.
Are you interested in selling or trading?
I have a listing I made and will attach it below.
Thank you,
Jim.......

Hello ,
I read your ad  and would like to know if you would be interested in a trade or sale of your plane for a 1958 Cessna 182A?

I will send photo's if you are interested.

I have a Beautiful, Low Time,  1958 Cessna 182A in excellent flying condition.
The Classic Straight Tail. 


Only 3155 Hrs TT Since New.

0470 230hp Engine only has 512 Hours SMOH

New McCauley Prop with 161 hrs. and cruises at 160 mph at 12 gph. 
Los Angeles  to Portland in 5-1/2 hrs.
This is a comfortable flying 182A.

The Exterior Paint shows very good and has always been in a Hangar.  A nice gloss shine.
No Corrosion.
The  fuselage, empennage and wings are as straight as they come!  A rare find for a aircraft of this Vintage.
The Interior was Restored in 2005.
New Airtex Upholstery on the Seats and Panels, 
All of the Interior metal looks like new and so is the weather striping.  The windshield and all windows are recently new. The piping around the doors and windows is also new.  The door panela and kick panels were new in 2005 and show very nice.

The aircrafts annual is not due until Dec. 1st of 2010.

Some of the Recent New Parts that have been installed are:

  1). New Fuel Cells, Bladders, 60 Gallons.
  2). New McCauley Prop, 160 hrs. SN
  3). New 4 Place Intercom.
  4). New Battery.
  5). New Seat Tracks.
  6). New Windshield and windows all around.
  7). New Alternator
  8). New Slick Mags.
  9). New Compass Card.
10). New Interior.
11). New Ailerons,  Flaps & Rollers.

Avionics & Instruments:

New Garmin 296 GPS.
New Airspeed Indicator.
New Heading Indicator.
New Altitude Indicator.
New Vertical Speed Indicator.
Transponder with Mode C.
In Panel 4 Place Intercom.
New Mark 12D Nav/Com Radio w/ Flip Flop.
Cessna Digital Nav/Com radio .
New ELT.
Two VOR'S and one Glide slope.   
IFR Capable.

OTHER ITEMS:
New Windshield
All New Windows
L&R Bladders.
New Braket Air Filter.
Spin on oil filter.
New Paint in 1999.
New Interior in 2005.
New Airtex Carpet.
New Brakes

New Tires
Wheel Pants
Exterior White Canvas Cover.
Electric Plug in Heater for the Oil Pan.
Cowl Vents.

It  had a $4,000 annual two years ago in 2007, seat tracks, Side windows, new Four Place Intercom, etc.
Then last years annual 2008 he replaced the generator with an alternator, New Slick Mags, Adjust and lube control linkage's, bulbs, etc.
This last Annual in Nov. of 2009 the Battery was replaced, New ELT and batteries, The Front Strut was serviced.
The  compressions on the Six Cylinders are from 72 to 76.
Like most 0470L's it uses about a quart  of oil every 20 hours.

The 182 does have a New McCauley prop with 160 hrs since new.

The A&P/IA that did the work for the last 12 years on this 182A is Tom Garcia, he is the same A&P/IA that works on Tom Wathens Famous airplanes....like the "Cauldron", a Famous French Classic Speed plane that won the Cleveland races in 1934 .  The "DeHaviland Comet", the "Laird Special",The "Firecracker" and a "Merlin Turbo Prop".   
Tom Garcia just completed the Annual and will not need a another until Dec. 1st of 2010.

It  a full canvass cover for windshield and windows.     
It has an electric plug in heater for the oil pan.   

The Mark 12D with Flip Flop is above the Transponder and the other Radio is a Cessna Digital Radio to the right of the Transponder.   
Two functioning radios--Both with a  VOR----The previous owner (Art) is sending me a VOR Head with Glide Slope to make this 182 Fully IFR Capable.

The older Straight Tails fly faster and use less fuel than the newer 182's.
A favorite of many.

This is a  nice, well cared for 182 and it shows.
If you have any questions please ask.
Thanks for your time and interest.
Sincerely,
James Pries
Salem Oregon.

Re: C-150 150 HP Conversion

I love reading about the 150/150s.  I have owned one for 15 years and am ready to sell.  I have had problems keeping a medical and have not flown much in the last 3 years. I really love the plane and hate to part with it, but I just don't get up much any more and as I prepare for retirement I need to sell some toys.

It is a nice IFR airplane, dual NAV/COM, 3530TTAF, 1444SMOH

If anyone wants any more details, email me.

Re: C-150 150 HP Conversion

I fly a 1970 A150K with the 150HP conversion (Lycoming O-320). This particular conversion did not have the increased grossweight allowence, so what you can do with it is extremely limited, but you cannot beat the performance. It burns about 8 GPH, and has a 444 lb useful load just to give you a picture. It's great for us because here in New Mexico just about every airport is above 4000 MSL, but if you're at sea level, I would say you're probably better off sticking with a stock 150, or consider a 125 HP conversion as you will get great performance and a more reasonable fuel burn. Just watch your fuel burn and do a careful weight and balance.
