That sound right to you?
this has exhaust studs but no prop bolts yet. I think trevor weighed his new 180 when he got it.

So about 8 lbs 9.5 ozs
Trev posted the zdz 180 pics at 8lbs 1.8 ozs
About 1/2 lb heavier

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

The chart needs to be updated. As it shows 7.79 lbs for a ZDZ-180. Which would be the vintage of mine.

Dale, who did you get super suk from? You would think a guy that owned a 40% comp would figure out how to move things around without adding 2 pounds on the nose
