Gathering Cost Information for Dakota Purchase

In the next 6 months I will be looking to purchase a Dakota. Several currently on sales sites have engines at TBO. What do I need to budget for a FOH or MOH? Also, what should I expect to pay for an annual? I know prices vary, but looking for some typical (if there is any such thing) budget numbers. Any assistance is appreciated. - Ben

  • Hi Ben,
    The annual on my Arrow is $1300 plus whatever needs to be fixed. Regarding engine overhaul, can you get me an engine model? If so, I can get prices for you.

  • Thanks Scott. It appears that the most common engine model is the Lycoming O-540-J3A5D.

  • Here's the quote. It does not cover engine removal, shipping to the overhauler, reinstall plus any accessories that you may want overhauled. Good luck.
