Cirrus MD1 missing. Help on replacement engine

Post by Cirrus16 » Mon Aug 01, 2016 5:47 pm

Hi all. Just purchased a Cirrus.

Missing from its heart is the engine/gearbox. Everything else for engine is there.

I have read a few things on MD1 and not keen on putting that back in and finding one is difficult.

Can someone point me in direction of replacement out with the md1. I gather some engines will force me to get new prop. Not wanting to buy new as of cost of can avoid it.

Thanks again. Happy sailing

I have an old MD2b from my Centaur which I'm replacing. It'll need taking apart and rebuilding, but if you're up to that it might do.
Experience: That which would have been most useful five minutes before you acquired it.
