Engine Upgrade

I plan to upgrade my debonair from the IO-470K to the IO-470C. It looks like a straight forward swap but are there any "Got ya" issues I should be aware of

Model: Debonair 35-B33
Aircraft Serial Number: CD-450

Baffles and exhaust are all different. Research what you have for what the STC calls out for governor & prop applicability. May be some engine instrument marking changes. Engine controls should work, but if they are needing to be changed due to condition, check that before you order the new ones. Any other engine-specific STCs you already have: Check application; Mogas not available for the C. Different GAMI-jectors, things like that.

If you are in the "looking" for an I0470C, do not ignore the IO470N (which were on the N and P model Bonanzas).

I looked for an IO-470N but most were asking a kings ransom for a run out engine. I know this 470C , I helped rebuild it so it is an excellent engine.
