Thanks Boomer. As always, a quick, informative reply. You are as reliable as gravity, and a real asset to all of the forums in which you participate. As luck would have it, the 226 is indeed equipped with an oil filter, making the swap simpler.
When I got this engine home, I hooked up a battery & a remote fuel supply, hit the starter button, and was amazed that it immediately came to life with what seemed like one revolution of the starter. It ran smooth as silk with no smoke, rattles, knocks, or noises of any kind. I was like a kid on Christmas morning. As eager as I am to make this swap, I have 5 or 6 projects in front of it, so it will have to wait a little while. Thanks again for all of your help, & I will start a new thread when the project gets under way.
