I just finished the motor mount and have not as of yet hung the engine on the fuselage.

Pleas if you remember, do this. There is not a lot of hard evidence for this engine and airframe.

Have you weighed the 1300SVS all up wet?

I bought the mount from raven in a tacked up state and finished it up by tig welding it my self. Raven has been very cooperative, I have visited their shop in Denver and at Oshkosh. I am very satisfied with their plans and the fit and finish of the parts. The kit was complete down to the last nut and bolt. They have always available by phone.
I was able to pick up the engine with 1,200 miles from a side impact Geo Metro. I started the engine in car , ran like a watch, Odometer was still sealed, I got computer, fuel injection & wire loom for $700.00. The second choice would be a corvair but for much more $s. Using Ivo 3 blade adjustable, I am scratch building.

In short as much information and experience that you are willing to share. The 1.3 and the 701 seems to be a rare combination. The main information at this point is plans for the engine mount to match the engine to the plane.

I am using the Reaven redrive and the 1.3L on a 601XL. What is it that you want to know?
