Description

1976 PIPER PA-32R-300 LANCE, 5431 TT, 1206 SMOH, GEAR UP DAMAGE, 3 AXIS A/P, GIVEAWAY PRICED !! THE LANCE IS A GREAT AIRPLANE, ESPECIALLY THE STRAIGHT TAILED VERSION, LIKE THIS ONE !!

THIS IS THE NEWEST “SMOOTH FORGED” 3 BLADE HUB, WHICH REPLACES ALL OF THE AD’D HUBS BEFORE IT !! OF COURSE, ALL 3 BLADES ARE NOW BENT BACK, EQUALLY. THE IO-540 ENGINE HAS 1206 SMOH, 1 CYLINDER HAD LOW COMPRESSION AT THE LAST ANNUAL, SO IT WAS REPLACED. GOOD LOGS, LOOKS LIKE GOOD MAINTAINANCE, WITH REGULAR OIL CHANGES. THE AIRFRAME LOGS ALSO LOOK GOOD. SAME SHOP FOR MANY YEARS, GOOD DETAILED ENTRIES THE DAMAGE TO THE AIRFRAME IS AS YOU MIGHT EXPECT OF A LANCE GEAR UP, WITH SCRAPING TO THE BELLY SKIDS, SCRAPING ON THE NOSE GEAR DOORS (BUT NOT SCRAPED THROUGH…
