Hi John!

   I'm Tim Kinney from Northern Ca. I've been working ,on and off on a 750. My son and I have completed the tail, control surfaces and left wing. I recently restarted flight training after a 22 year pause. I should be done with the private pilot soon and will be motivated to continue with my airframe. The big mental block I keep running into is the engine.

  I put out about $7700 in addition to the $3500 I already had into the corvair engine and I get only some of the parts and then no response from 2 of the prime suppliers. I decided to concentrate on flying to relieve my frustration. If I still haven't gotten any results from the suppliers after I have completed the private I will sell all the parts and put the money into avionics. I will then pursue a more reliable engine choice.
