I made a small oil change stand, so I don't have to balance the oil pan on the tire. Cutting a notch in the end on the top for the front fork worked great.  C85 , CH701.

I replaced my Jab 3300's sump drain plug with a Curtis oil drain valve. Then, you simply stick a hose on the valve's nipple and can drain the oil into a container (rather than a pan) that is sitting solidly on terra firma! :>)



David , very nice airplane and I like your cowl.  It seems that those of us who have the stock Zenith cowl for the O200 have to enlarge the air inlets to control oil temps.  What are the dimensions of your inlets and do/did you have any overheating issues?
