Re: O-200 with very low hours 80ish had prop strike but supposed to have no Crank damage. 4,000$

Continental crankshafts are tempered harder than Lycoming crankshafts. They are less likely to deform in a prop strike when compared to that of a Lycoming crankshaft. There is a familiar saying that Lycoming crankshafts tend to bend, Continental crankshafts tend to break. Either engine type needs to be  broken down and inspected.

It's not just the crankshaft flange runout that requires inspection after a prop strike. Per Continental the engine should be torn down and properly inspected.

Wanted to see if I could get a little finder's fee for this 0-200. Guy is clearing out his hanger and said his 0-200 has around 80 original hours had a propstrike from a ground loop when he was learning to fly a tailwheel. Says that the Crank was dialed and looks fine. Is asking 4,000. I think that's probably a pretty good deal if everything checks out. Located in Indiana. The guy lives in Florida and while this engine could be low hours as he said seems a 80ish original hours engine is pretty unheard of. He could be trying to pass off a high time airboat motor? If due diligence is conducted could be a deal though.
