Someone needs to buy this basic VFR workhorse of a 140 so we can upgrade to a 235. Asking $32,000 CAD so I think that is almost free in US dollars these days.

Low time engine, new prop and well maintained. The 160 h.p. with the gap seals and other mods help her climb like a homesick angel. I burned around the circuit (pattern) the other day at light weight in cooler temperatures (Sea Level, 50F, 1800 lbs) and she climbed out at more than 1600 fpm.

I loaded in the girlfriend and two disassembled mountain bikes and the plane had no trouble with a 2600' grass strip with an uphill take off run and west coast 100' Douglas fir trees on the departure end.

Looks like the clone of mine in Alberta. Good luck with the sale, kinda low price IMO for a low time engine, im sure it will go quick.

In the link the it is written that the engine is 400 SMOH, with a bottom end done in 2013? You may have better response clarifying actual times for everything. It's a little confusing the way it's written. Just a thought. Good luck with your sale.

I don't believe a teardown inspection and reassembly resets the engine overhaul time if that is what you are getting at?

I found your add a little confusing in that you haven't stated the hours since the "bottom end overhaul" only that it was done in 2013. That's all.

Ahh gotcha. I'll have to look but it would be in the 150 hour range I think since then.
