If you are an AOPA member you can access all kinds of info on how to buy an aircraft on their web-site, aopa.org. On the front page click the "Aircraft and Ownership" tab which will lead you to all the info I could imagine one would need.

FYI--The "org.uk/links" listed result in an "error 404-site not found"

Unfortunately the site has been melted a few years ago. If you notice the date that Ernie posted the first message in this thread ........ 2008.

Thanks Herb, I've noticed the dates on some of the posts were somewhat dated. I thought I'd mention the Gen Info & Tips for Buyers links as I've seen many in the forum including myself referred to the Post only to find a dead end.

Buying a 337

Here's a suggestion. Get hold of the SID's, most of these are visual inspections. Go through these with an A&P mechanic. Use anything you find to negotiate the price or abandon the purchase. The hard part of the SID's, if you are not going to stay in the Private category, is the three small screw holes in the spar, the jacking point and two next to it. To get them out you have to remove the fuel tanks as the nuts are not captured. Thanks for the foresight Mr Cessna.

JeffAxel is an unknown quantity at this point
Dirk Wittig at Northwest Aircraft Maintenance at KHIO took care of my P337 for 3 years. Took the CPA 337 Systems and Maintenance course too. If the plane you are looking at is in the Pacific Northwest, his number is 503-648-3670. Good thorough guy.

West Coast is a large area, is there a specific location that you could provide? It may help to achieve a better response.
