Wanted 391B Parts or parts plane

I have a 391B project plane that I have had at least 20 years and has been on the back burner.

   Last week I went for a ride with Larry Teufel in his Helio.  My first ride ever in a Helio Courier.  I was hooked with the performance.  So now mine is no longer on the back burner.  So now looking for parts to put mine together, or a parts plane to buy.

  Following are the major parts I am looking for.

         Engine mount

          Low or mid time engine possibly


         1 front oleo

          1 rear oleo

          Exhaust system


          Interior panels  (I have seats)

          Engine  Baffling.

           Wing Carry thru .  Mine says it was done in the paperwork, but Carry thru I have does not have the plates. Also need appropriate wing attach bolts.

          Probably lots more but this is a start

           Would appreciate any leads or if you have any of these parts please let me know.

           Any suggestions welcome. My Helio knowledge is fairly limited, and have learned lots from this site.

     Thanks in advance.

I have a set of windows removed from H-10. These are clear and the the owner wanted gray tint. I think they could be cleaned up and would be fine. I also have a core GO-435 that I am sending to Mark at Custom Aeromotive. He will see if it is an overhaul able core.

If you could find a mount for a go480 I would trade you a 435 mount.   I have a couple but would not want to get rid of them unless it was for a 480 mount. Also lp aero glass sells all the windows with the proper arch in them for the helio. Do not put flat glass in.  I have several engines also

Hi Bryon,
I have a 391B with a mid time engine and overhauled prop that may fit your project. I'm interested in selling the airplane. The airframe has nearly 10,000 hrs. S/N 45 .The annual was just done in September and is a great flying helio. If your interested in the airplane for parts give me a call. The price is very reasonable.

I have those parts now, as I bought an H250 project.  What I really need now is an H 250 lower cowl. Local guy thinks he can make one if we have to.
