CH-701 Cabin Frame Jigging

Posted on May 29, 2016 at 1:00pm 1 Comment

Re: Jigging 701 Cabin Frame

Following the procedures in the plans and manual for levelling fuselage, Hz tubes on cabin frame and engine mount, I jigged drilled and cleco'd the cabin frame to the AC. I supported the assembly at the

bottom of the firewall to get everything level (Fwd fuse is rivetted to rear fuse). When all was done I pulled the support from under the firewall, and of course everything sagged a bit leaving

the side tubes with a slight decline angle from level…

Thanks, Perry. I'm enjoying it. Got the fuel system from Skytek Aircraft, your neighbors up there in B.C.

Yes it is. I was going for the 100 hp, but I got my hands on a used engine whit only 600 h. The deal included the propeller and the Dynon flightdeck, and was to good a deal to let go. If it will work as planned only time will tell.

Hi Perry,

Do you have a header tank in your 701? If so, do you have any photos you could share?

Hi Perry, thanks for the comment. Yes I have the engine but I'm having a hard time finding a mount.planning on building my own using zeniths design as a starting point for my own. Are you planning on finishing your 701?

Hi Perry,

Yes it is indeed the Subaru EA-81 with PSRU in the 701. I plan to transplant the power package from the 701 to the 750 when done. I will then install a Rotax 912 in that 701 and sell it outright.

I will then keep the 750.

Oh, by the way, the foot tall numbers are for whenever I will go to Alaska. Need the big numbers for international flight.

Thanks for the kind words.You can't see all the sags and runs in my photo, but the vinyl graphics came out well, even if I do say so myself! I'm kinda stuck at the moment, since the airport has no hangar space for the plane. So, I paint and wait.
