Engine compartment

Most Vagabonds were fitted with the A65 Continental engine (65 bhp), which is "adequate". However, many Vagabond owners have fitted the Continental C90 (90bhp) engine, for much better take-off performance. The C90 is the same size, weighs the same, and fits the same engine mounts as the A65. A very worthwhile improvement, and G-AWOF had a new (zero-timed) C90 fitted. This has since done about 500 hours. For more details see Pilot Notes.

I have hundreds of photos of the engine rebuild, cowlings, exhaust, etc, but here are just a few showing the airfilter, and the magnetos being checked and retimed in 2011.
