Now that we have the cylinder head temps within acceptable range I note the oil temp is higer than I would like, so will try opening up the air intake on the oil cooler, since it is baffeled the additional air should go thru the cooler and lower the temp. Will know after the change. Still running on Mineral Oil but temps seem to be stabalizing as we go along. Lets hope the weather cooperates.

Sebastian is correct I am running the Jabiru 5100 8 Cyl 180 HP engine in a CH-801.

Chris - I think you've guessed wrong on both counts. I believe it's the eight cylinder Jabiru 5100 engine and that's definitely a four-seat STOL CH 801.

Phillip - You have a Jabiru 3300? On a 750?
