1972 Taylor MK II Lt65 Experimental Aircraft Lycoming 0 145 B2 Engine Sensenich Wooden Propeller.
I bought this at an estate auction and have not seen it run. It reportedly has 366 total hours, but I do not have flight or maintenance logs. It reportedly last flew about 8 years ago and then was going to be restored and repainted by the previous owner. I was told that it ran good when it flew last, and has been siting in a barn since then. The engine turns over nicely and has good compression. The fuel tank is relatively new, and there are lots of small parts in their original un-opened containers, mostly various fittings, hoses, and other small engine parts. I see no obvious damage to any of the structure or surfaces other than normal wear. This plane definitely needs some TLC, but I think all the major components are good, and it would not take a major investment to get it airworthy. I don"t know enough about it though to tell you exactly what needs to be done however.
