Default Rolls-Royce O-200?

pardon my ignorance...
Is a rolls-royce O-200 the same as a continental O-200?
I mean specifically same overhaul times, same parts, same maintence,
etc?

I'm interested in a homebuilt with one but don't want to get into some
orphan engine.

Thanks,
Ryan in Madison

(please also pardon the cross posting, I wanted to get as much input as
possible)

Rolls-Royce built several Continental engines under license for many years.
I don't know if parts are interchangeable, but I don't think they'd be
considered orphan engines.

They are exactly the same engine. Only difference is the RR part numbers
end in RR.

Plus, the RR engines feel superior to their Yank made counterparts! g

No, they are totally different, and you would have to make every single
part, from scratch.

I would advise you go ahead with buying the homebuilt, then _immediately_
switch engines, and ship the RR engine to me, for safe disposal. I promise
you will sleep better, with that off of you mind! bfg

Anything else I can help you with, please feel free to write! g

And find a source for avpetrol. G

Don't forget to carry your Whitworth wrenches in the plane with you, your
A&P is unlikely to have a set.

And they have those really neat stamped RR plates on the end of each
cylinder. When you go to fly-ins and prop your cowling open, guaranteed
to draw a crowd.
