io-470 Power Charts

If anyone can scan and post the cruise power charts for for a Continental IO-470 (310, 205 or early 185) I sure would appreciate it.

    Here's a 185 POH. Does this help?

    Need help? Let me know!

  • Here's a kinda ratty-looking C205 POH I found on the Inter-webs using Google. This C205 manual is for the 260 hp IO-470-S used in the C205 (unlike the C185 manual Scott provided above, which I think is for the IO-520). Like most Cessna performance numbers of the time, it's somewhat optimistic on its airspeed predictions, but the fuel flow/RPM/hp charts seem to be pretty close to reality.
    I hope that helps.
