Let me start a fired up topic. Has anyone considered the WW Corvair 100HP for the 701? I know he did one prototype, but the 750 has taken over. But curious about the combo on 701? I know all the…Continue

Started the 701, have decided on using a WW Corvair conversion, right now 2775 100+hp direction.
I have a good core engine, disassembled, cleaned, heads will go to and back from SPA, SPA for billet crank, billet rods and 5th bearing. WW conversion route.
Will use the 2775 pistons and cylinder billet rod set SPA offers that is WW product. With the.60 over cylinders and billet rod and crank it will save close to 7 to 10 lbs.
Fuselage airframe complete, firewall/motor mount and rudder pedals installed. Seats in and on gear. Doing controls and rigging now. Hope to finish wings next year. today is 3/01/2018.

Hi Terry,

Thanks for contacting me. It is always good to know of other Zenith builders and Corvair power. I had about 100 hrs on my 2700cc Corvair in my 601 Xl whne I took it out to install another Corvair. This one is 3250cc and has many mods, most are not WW approved so I'm sort of an outcast there. I wanted more power so I could get better climb performance at high density altitudes. Your engine should do just fine in the 701.

Terry,

Sorry that I have not responded to your last e-mail. I messed up my e-mail by changing the modem password, knocking mine and wife's accounts off line.

 

Will get back to you once the probleme is fixed.

Gene K.
