Since it's now been sold, I guess it's OK to comment.
Far as I know, the T41B came from Cessna with a 210hp IO-360 Continental & c/s prop.
Interesting that someone would have converted it to a Lyc O360 with 30 less horsepower.
Still, seems like a pretty reasonable price for what is no doubt still a good performer.

Hey Hotrod,

It was common for the Airforce or Army to downconvert them.  They flew them in the CAP program and in flying clubs, and doing the conversion took the airplane out of the high performance category, and reduced maintenance costs by going to an engine (O360) with a reputation for reliability.  I'm told the IO360 was less reliable, and substantially more expensive to fix.  Most of the T41B's I've seen are converted, rather than original.

I've only seen a few, maybe three.
One was indeed converted to Lycoming power.
But a friend of mine owns two and they're both Continental powered.

Mine has the 0360 C/S prop. Seems when they hit TBO and CAP had them ,they converted them. I previously had a c182 some years ago.  Lotta good things going for T41B.  Not quite a c182 but better than C172.
Useful load on mine is 1004.49lbs (just did paper work today).Im happy with mine
Just my opinion.
