         Interestng question but can only help by referring you back about
3-4 weeks to my inquiry about overspeeds and their affects on IO-360's.  Got
a nice variety of answers.  Question, what's the source and meaning of your
3100 rpm number?
            Cheers,  Frank

> This time I have more of a nosy survey question for S-1S (fixed-pitch
prop) owners, especially those with AEIO-360s.  How long have you gone
between major overhauls?  In the time between MOHs, how hard were you
pushing your engine (e.g., do you typically run it flat out on downlines, or
pull it back below 3100 RPM)?  And (the big que$tion) how much was your last

low, mid, or high time, and how much to sock away in the engine fund (please
don't say, "how much ya got?").  Thanks in advance!
