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.
