I don’t really know anything about the plane, I just remember stopping there once and seeing it parked on the ramp, and I think I remember seeing it at another airport once.
There are a couple of AI’s where I live that are well versed in Grummans, if you want to get a pre-purchase done I can hook you up with them. I am at 7S5.
Thanks for the response this was super helpful. It is the Fletchair STC on the 160hp. Nothing in the logs for the weight increase STC but that is just a matter of money and paper work.

Update, I sent an email to David about the bracket. He located a -501 bracket and will be shipping it to me tomorrow.
Also, the Vans RV baffle kit from Roscoe should arrive tomorrow. More fun. This will go with the Vans wheel pants I bought from Fletchair.
