Jim Bede used such a swing-away mount on the BD-4.

I seem to remember one 235 installation had a swing away mount. Or maybe I am imagining that.

There was a guy in Albuquerque in the 1990s who was putting an O-235 in his Dragonfly. I know because I bought the 2180 VW he removed to do it. An O-235 is wider than an O-200. I don't think it would fit very well.

I believe Sammy Hoskins and Bob Malecek were faster both with 0200’s both “pumped”

Gary, was the O-235 any faster than a pumped up 0200?

Yes, flown 2 o235 Qs, both in europe. both LS1 canard. It is perfectly doable but suggest you hang engine as far back as possible.

Anyone tried an O-235 on a Q2? I know it may be a bit heavy. Only asking because I have two hopped up ones sitting in my hangar and it sparked my curiosity
