if its just a used 2.5 powerhead your after & your not bothered whether its all matching............... Gregs gotta be worth a call, he'd mosty likely take your old powerhead as a p/x & may even offer to stand by what you purchase.

I only live 2 minutes fro the airport so avgas is no problem to me, gives me something to think about.
Thanks
