Does anyone have any experience with the Rotec ignition?  One of my Jabiru coils failed and I decided to upgrade to the Rotec rather impulsively.  Looking at the installation manual, it appears I may…Continue

Rotec ignition for Jabiru

Does anyone have any experience with the Rotec ignition?  One of my Jabiru coils failed and I decided to upgrade to the Rotec rather impulsively.  Looking at the installation manual, it appears I may have to change my starting switch.  The manual recommends activating the ignition AFTER cranking.  I have the #1, #2, both, starter type switch.  I'd be interested to know if anyone has been able to use that type of switch by simply turning one of the P Leads from ground to positive.See More

aerocarb for Jabiru CH750

Anyone put an aerocarb on a CH750?  Were you able to install the throttle on the panel?  Dual throttles?  Mixture knob or use the aerocarb special?  Is it an improvement over the Bing?  Worth the cost?  I've run out of upgrades to do; getting bored; need a winter project.See More
