    The FAA website will not usually show the engine the aircraft is modified with but the engine it left the factory with. My Dad's Clipper is a perfect example, still shows the O-235

    You canít rely on anything under the airworthiness heading on the registration I query site. FAA doesnít keep that portion up to date.

    Engine up grades rarely show up on the FAA registration database. I installed an O-320 in my Clipper in 2000. The FAA still shoes the O-235.

    How the heck can I Find STCs or 337s. Where and how? It's hard to track something down unless someone has past paperwork they are willing to share. Even a C-90 would help because it is heavier than a C-85. It gives us a proof of concept and will save me a ton of money getting a DAR or DER to approve the install. Sharing information is such an important thing. Everyone here have been so helpful and kind. Thank you guys for everything.

    Most (but not all) STCs are listed on the FAA RGL web site. As for 337s, do
    Like everyone else does, find the N# of an airplane that has the alteration you want to copy and pay the $10 to get a copy of the FAA file for that airplane.

    you can add N4582H to the list. I posted the wing tank field approval on this site somewhere.
