This is a solid 1955 180 but like all old aircraft it needed a little TLC. Removed the vacuum system and installed a G5, got rid of the tach cable and installed a digital tach, diss assembled the tail for a in depth inspection and clean of the tail. re assembled using all new hardware and hinge bearings, rebuilt the jack screws, tail wheel. Re rigged, insulated, flies straight as an arrow.
I have been put about 180 hours on this plane since I bought it, engine runs great, no leaks, burns no oil but is high time. Airplanes love to fly.
