Weight is the common question when talking about conversions like mine. Therefore; I am attempting to keep a semi-credible accounting of weights.

Took an interesting photo today - thought some of you might be interested in seeing it. Since this is a bit dated, it is important to note that this was with the OEM EFI system.


This is my entire engine (with oil, intake, exhaust, mount, flywheel, prop hub, starter, fuel rails, etc...) sitting on a scale.  The scale is showing 250 lbs.

Aircraft Weight = ~700 lbs
At time of weighing plane contained 6-8 gallons fuel (35-50 lbs) and came in at 738 lbs. A more precise weighing will be conducted prior to flight.
