I'm with the gallery on here, on a vintage cherokee (140/180/basically anything fixed gear hershey bar wing), you're better off swapping the motor for another used one or doing a more aggressive shopping for a field overhaul. But your money, your circus. At least you don't have angle valve cylinders like I do. Pricey. I'm an IRAN guy though, I have a lot more risk tolerance to running Lycomings on-condition. To each their own.
It was an O-540...6 banger...235HP. Overhaul because I had a cam issue so I figured why not....motor was past 2,000 hours 30K for a carb and magneto overhaul as well plus new cylinders. Hoping I get another 30 years out of it.
