no, different back cover.


By "back cover" do you mean accessory case? If so, then that's what I would swap out to a 2-mag case.

Accessory case for single mags will not fit your crankcase.

I know of one V4A5D (dual mag 260) out there. Tried to convert to single mags on the build but would not work. Hell of an engine though.

Thank you so much for this comparison, Jeremy (& Gary). Like I said before , I have the W1A5D. Would it be possible to change it over to single mags at overhaul just by swapping out the accessory case? I think it's crazy to think I'm looking forward to spending far, far more to upgrade my airplane than I paid for it. Engine, prop, Panel, Tires, Wheels, brakes, floats...Where does it end?[/quote]


I think it’s awesome you enjoy your ship enough to put so much more into it. It is a love affair! I hope to get to that point some day!

Just fly it; learn what it can do and where it can take you that few aircraft can. Very Happy

Thanks, Bill. I'm still working to get there myself.

There is nothing "wrong" with it now and I love the full King Silver Crown stack.
If I decide to keep it "forever" then I would put an entire new Garmin 650 based panel with dual G5 displays (AI & HSI) in it for starters. I still hate to think of ADSB for a seaplane/sandbar/pasture plane, but would need that due to the position of my home base within a Mode C ring.
