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

 Thrust flanges are prone to cracking after ANY strike, but they don't always fail right away. It's a big unknown WHEN. I've seen a live example that I refused to allow my pilot and friend to fly with. He swapped in a similar engine "great deal" O-200 in front of his Taylorcraft and when I pushed/pulled the prop (right after he landed at the grass strip my aircraft was hangered at, flying over Arkansas swamps!) it moved at least 3/8" in and out of the case. I flew him home in my aircraft..next day we proceeded to swap back the original. 

 That O-200 crankshaft ended up being soup cans, the case was toast as well. 

 Good angels protect some I guess. I'm not that lucky.

Glad you brought that up Sam. I was going to say the same thing.

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.
