Cruzer owners with Viking 130 or 150 engines and successful installations?

Cruzer CH-750 factory assembled wing spar.

Is this a common occurrence or am I just unlucky?

Photo Instructions for Cruzer

It would have been nice if ZAC instructors told us at the rudder course that the other photo instructions would miraculously appear after being approved for the builder's and flyers page, Zenith Aero.
