I am installing a Rotec alternator kit in my CH601XL that has a Jabiru 3300 engine. I have run into a couple of problems and am seeking help on two issues:
1. The Jabiru alternator that is now in the plane has two ignition coils that have wires that connect to the two distributors. When these are removed to allow for the installation of the Rotec kit, there is no longer a connection to the distributors. Without current to the distributors, the engine will not start. Moreover, the installation instructions for the Rotec kit provide no advice on this problem. Any thoughts on how to deal with this issue?
2. The installation instructions for the Rotec kit specify that the magnetic ring that is aft of the flywheel needs to be removed and the drive pulley installed in its place. I have removed the four button head screws that serve to hold the magnetic ring in place. However, the ring does not come off. Any advice on removing it?
Thanks, in advance, for any help you can provide.
try a post in jabiru engine forum, hope the plane is flying good for you, too bad you don't still fly down here
Thanks for the lead Chris. The plane is flying well now. Took quite a bit of "fine tuning" to get it that way.
I miss seeing you and hope that you are doing well.
When I get everything fixed on the plane, I may be able to fly out to KCVB.
