John....My plane was lost due to uneven fuel flow and one tank running empty and the other with 8 gallons.  I am rebuilding and about a moth from taking it back to the airport and assembling the new wings.  Zenith is putting out a service letter as a result of my loss. I must say though that the 750 STOL with the 0-320 was a kick to fly.  Will keep you updated.  Thanks,  Chris

Hi John - thanks for asking.  I'm sort of at a frustrating point for the first time.  I've completed the rudder, elevator, stab, both wings, the slats and flaperons, and the fuselage, except the forward part of the fuse.  For the first time, I'm sort of without direction, and the Homebuilt help videos aren't really helping.  I guess I could do the struts or mount the tail, but there's no clear checklist or guidance on what to do next.  I am wondering if I should mount a fuel selector of some sort.  This is the first time I'm at a point where I don't really know what to do next!  I guess I could buy my Garmin G3X and start to install that somehow.  Did you paint your forward fuselage interior?  Just wondering how guys did that...

Hey John,

I just noticed your the guy who, unknowingly of course, snatched the N number I wanted. It's funny I was at a friends house and we were looking to see what was available and typed it in and it said "available". So about a week or so later I went to reserve it and it was gone. ): So instead of going with my initials I went with my other favorite N750YT "Yankee Tango" being I'm from MI it fits. (:

Yes, I have purchased a zero timed O200a. It was rebuilt by Tom wottering. He has a couple of videos on YouTube. Project is not flying yet just getting ready to attach wings.

Hello John,

good idea starting a friend group of Viking 750 builders.  Don't recall, do you have the Viking 130 or 110?

Hi John,
I believe there are several 750's flying Corvairs. But who they are, I don't know?
I did work with one guy who was building one, I might be able to put you in touch with him? I'd have to look up his info.?

I came out at 290. The actual horsepower is about 140.

The 3600. don't believe the claimed weight, its about 20 lbs heavier than they say.
