I am completing a 750 with 130 viking, large spinner like yours. I would like to talk to you about cooling of the engine. I have not installed the NACA inlet yet, nor have I cut the hole behind the spinner. I want to see if the naca inlet is really necessary and if the cowl is strong enough after cutting the slot all the way around the back plate.
Mark, I just noticed that you picked up a Viking 130. I am located in Lorain County and I would like to stop by to see the 130.and talk about the installation. I am currently flying a 1946 J3 Cub and I have a set of plans for a Zenith 750. I purchased the Cub last summer to build my tail wheel time and my hours. I have been following the Viking Engines since Jan started building them. Pardon my inviting myself but I am really excited about seeing this engine. Thank. I will send info on PM. Joe B
