I want to own a Zodiac 601 XL and want to learn all I can before I buy. I am seriously considering buying a 2006 Z 601 XL which is for sale and registered E-AB. I have several questions: When a new owner buys an E-AB registered aircraft, do the same privileges extend to the new owner regarding inspections and maintenance? The current owner (builder) does not have a POH for the aircraft. Can I get one from Zenith Aircraft? The engine on this aircraft is a Corvair O-164 per Wm Wynne's conversion instructions. How can I get a maintenance manual for this engine; from Mr Wynne? (builder does not have one). This aircraft is flown in the "farmland" with no transponder; what used transponder is recommended. I'm looking at a reconditioned KT-76A-CD in Trade-a-Plane listed for $695; is this reasonable? Last annual inspection was done by the owner/builder; should I have a certified A+P inspect the plane before buying? HELP!
