Quadra 52 or Quadra 50?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have a for sale item in the Engines area. I've listed it as a Quadra 52. However, I've been asked if it really is a Q52, or if it is a Q50. I do not have any paperwork for the engine (got it in a package deal with a plane.) I didn't know that Quadra made a Q50.

It was suggested that I use a dial caliper to measure the bore. Unfortunatly, I don't have a dial caliper. Is there any other way to determine if it is a Q52 or a Q50? There are no markings on the engine to indicate which one it might be. There is a serial number sticker on the cyclinder. It is 391151.

Quadra made both a 50 and 52,the latter being an update of the 50.Check here www.bennettbuilt.com in the parts lists for these engines and you may be able to identify yours.
If that fails phone B&B with the engine handy and they can probably identify which you have.
