Jabiru Cooling

I am just completing a cooling baffle for my 601.  This design is by Bob Gutteridge.  He is an EAA Tech Advisor who built a Jabiru aircraft with the 3300 engine.  He had continuing problems with cylinder head heating problems and designed this baffling system.  I copied his desing and adapted for the Zodiac.  I should have this finished this week and will report on my temps.  On my first flight I had cylinder head temps right near 400 degrees with the older Jabiru fiberglass system.

Sam,

I've looked at your cooling system and think you are on to something that will work!

Anxiously awaiting your test results,

Mack

Hello Sam,

I checked out your website. Lots of detail there. Glad the intake splitter and cooling scoop worked for you.
