I got my IO-233 last week. It is bolted in now but there is a problem with the fuel pump. the overboard orifice needs to be reclocked from the 7 o'clock position to the 4 o'clock position. I am waiting on Lycoming to get thie done. Do you have any word on a ship date for your engine?
I thought that a Lycoming was not practiccal on the 750 so I haven't really looked at them. Since I joined this forum I have noticed that there are several people working with a Lycoming engine. What kind of flying weight do you expect? Couldn't install a better engine but the weight has to be critical. Thanks for your time.
Would like to discuss your IO-233 installations plans. I have a fuel system schematic and am considering the best boost pump to use in this installation.
I had my plane almost done when I went to Oskosh and learned about the Edition 2 750. I spent the next 2 months upgrading my plane to Edition 2. That was hard to disassemble and complete that, but I am glad I did. I have a Zenith supplied engine mount (installed) which is dynafocal and a Zenith supplied cowl. If you would like the fuel system schematic, let me know.
