    They list a 914 for 16.5k new, I paid 20k for one back in 1996!

    I spoke to a gyro guy that installed one and he thought the installed weight was closer to #230/240. And then there is Jan.

    We tried one on a Europa. Smooth but could never get the carburetor right. Either low, mid or high was always bad. burned a lot of oil too. Used it about 25 hours and put a 912S on it.

    Sounds like one of the carb springs might not be working correctly? Maybe when you advance the throttle one carb is "outrunning" the other causing an imbalance? Either way I would go thru the carbs and/or see if you could swap a known good working set of carbs with someone?

    I used to run nothing but 100LL in a 914 Europa. Used TCP and always ran it hard (5,300/5,500) in cruise. It never had lead fouling but the side of the plane would turn gray past the exhaust.

    Measuring them side-by-side confirms this.
