Some comments from satisfied pilots,

This engine is the best Top 80 I have flown.  Smooth and tons of power.  You did a great job. One of my best decisions to rebuild. Thank you so much. – Top 80 owner

I just wanted to thank you for your article on seal removal from the prop shaft. I struggled to remove my seal for hours trying every tool I had at my disposal and scouring the web until I found your article. It worked first try! Thank you again for sharing this knowledge! – M.L.

I just want to give a formal thank you for all of the great stuff on the Polini 130 engine on your website! I cannot tell you how valuable that information is…..including info on the starter (I’ve been lucky, 100+ hours on the starter and no issues yet…likely as you told us how to start the motor first time, every time!!)….and all of the comments you made in the “Servicing Intervals” section…its truly GOLD! – Top 80 owner
