While flying the airplane 8 days earlier the engine experienced a loss of engine power and the pilot performed a successful forced landing in a field. The carburetor was overhauled and reinstalled. The airplane was then flown to a nearby airport where the airplane was inspected again and approved for return to service. The fuel tanks were filled and the accident flight departed. During cruise flight at 2,500 feet, the engine experienced a loss of engine power which the pilot was unable to restore. The airplane was substantially damaged during the forced landing. Postaccident testing of the carburetor revealed several discrepancies but no determination was made as to the reason for the loss of engine power. The carburetor installed at the time of the accident was incorrect per the airplane type certificate data sheet.

Probable Cause: The loss of engine power for undetermined reasons, resulting in a nose-over during the forced landing.
