I've just posted the airworthiness records for Cadet N29396.  It has an O-200 installation performed under a one-time STC.  Prior to that it had an O-290 Lycoming.

I am the prior owner of N281W (AKA NC20926)  C-90 in that bird for certain....  I knew of a cadet being built by Paul Harper back in the 70's with and O-200.  Don't know if it was ever completed of flew.  The O-200 required the cowl line to be altered with a definite break between the dash glare shield and the top like of the cowl.  not aesthetically pleasing.  I'm certain if there was a way of installing that didn't later the lines, Paul would have tried to do this.

Tom's post reminded me...   Everyone who is thinking of changing engines from Frank. to Cont. remember that the cowling is shorter by about 1-2 inches for the Franklin.  Also, the Cont. O-200 has different rubber mounts and different size mount bolts... thus requires a new mount.  If you plan to go that route you might make the new mount just the right amount shorter so as to reduce the work on the cowling.   Some Continental engine mounts had a cross tube blocking the space for the starter.  If you plan to mount an engine with starter check for that.  Many mounts have been modified by now but maybe not all.

Hi Cadet Pilots. Bill Poynter asked if I had Drawings for the 0-200 engine mount and if it would match the wood fuselage, Yes to all. The Cadet STF is a certified home built and you
may be able to apply this to alteration certifacation. I also have compleat drawings for the 0-200 baffle cooling. Check with Bill for further progress. Neal
