I'm not interested in the engine or other parts, but I am interested in what happened.
Was it just a situation where the plane didn't have enough fuel or did something else happen?

Howdy,

Prior owner had pilot error, very ow on fuel, banked turn 30 degree, engine quit, didn't get fuel valve in correct position after level flight for re-start, safe landing, as they walked away!

My take away, better pilotage set-up (more fuel on board & shallow turns when low) & fool proof gas valve device (inability to set pointer in off directions without Additional effort).

Emergency good landing skills and lucky for a field available to set down in.

Good argument for an Andair upgrade. Would have saved a nice airplane. And they cost so much less than a wrecked airplane.
