If anyone has used a 1.3 L Suzuki engine in a CH 701, I would like to know how well the installation went. Did you have to build a custon cowling? What prop did you use? What kind of radiator did you use? Are you pleased with the performance? Would you recommend this engine?


Any comments would be appreciated!
