    Try "Trade A Plane." Does it have logbooks? I've seen them start at $6,000

    Very Impressive. There's also an impressive book worth having on the R-2800, written by Graham White , which provides a great deal of detail on the design, construction and components of the various R-2800s. Reading it I can say, for example, that the ignition system uses the GE "turtleback" combined magneto/distributor units, with the simplified tubular harness...:glasses6:

    I thought it was only an engine it turned out to be a full package which included, trailer,carb,prop and lots of spares and a manual.
    I'll take some pic's of trailer its a nice bit of kit.

    Aozora, thanks for the info on the book.
