Folks, looking for a Continental C85 8F engine.  Preferably located in the Northeastern part of the country.  Please let me know if you have one for sale or know someone that does.  Thank you.

John,

Randy Thompson (530) 357-5440 is a great resource.  From what I read on the Cessna 120 - 140 site, everyone seems to be very pleased with his overhauls.  I don't know if he sells engines outright but he'd be worth calling.

Dave,

Thank you for the recommendation.  I will touch base with Randy in case he can help.
