I am installing a Lyc. Promotional material indicates a empty weight a about 800 lbs. I believe the MOD will increase this by about 25 lbs. Some of you have completed the MOD. How do your weights compare? For Lyc users-Empty Weight? Regular or light weight starters and alternators? Prop type,pitch,dia? Cruse speed? Rate of fuel burn at a specific power setting. Where is your battery? What does it weigh. Did you have to add ballast and where? Anything else?

I'm using a O235 Lyc and would like to hear from other builders.
Weight with or without paint? Lightweight starter/alternator? Type and location of battery? Fuel tanks? Prop-Make/Dia/Pitch? Cruise speed at what RPM? Any thing else that comes to mind. Ed Hamilton (609)971-8757(30 mi North of Atlantic Cith NJ)
