Taa Daa !! We have installation of a Rotax 912ULS on the nose of a STOL 750, I have more pictures of the early part of this install and will include them in my photo album when I have a little time at the hanger.
The zip ties are only temporary, I use them to place the hoses then I will add proper clamps when everything is finalized. I believe I will also have to move the hoses from the water pump to the heads to gain a little clearance. I will let you know what I do in a future blog.
I cannot go any further on the FWF now until I have some more parts and try to get a few things changed, keep in mind that this is the first Rotax installation into the 750 and we did expect changes so that when you are ready to install one in your plane everythingt should be taken care of making the installation as easy as the rest of this plane has been. SO far I am very happy with the progress of the FWF installation, I have run into issues I knew would be a problem and a couple that i didn't expect, but so far everything is quite minor and is typically just a line routing issue or an additional part to the FWF package is needed. I will follow up with Zenith to get some advice on my proposed changes and let you know what I did at a later blog. Tomorrow I will start on the controls, then the windshield.
