The numbers I posted are steering boots for a 2001 Yamaha mountain max snow mobile. One number is the rubber boot and the number the metal ring to attach to the fire wall. Keep working on your 701 you will enjoy flying it. If you like I can send you a photo.
Hi Jerry i pulled out my EA -81 to heavy, will be flying off my paddock so i want my plane to be as light as i can get it.I picked up a low time jab at a good price.Do you no any body flying a jab powerd 701 would like to no how it performs.
#609 is very early and most engines of that time have since had later version heads fitted for better cooling.
Some engines run well for reasonable times and it may be a case for leaving alone.
You need to check what changes had already been done, if its already run 367 hrs the way to check for the scuffed piston skirts is to ground run at around 1800 rpm for 2 mins then shut down, if the prop stops quickly without springback and is stiff to rotate by hand then its a candidate for the cylinder basenuts and hone the barrels job. This is explained better by Roger Lewis on the Jabiru Yahoo group.
In the 701 depending on cowling, cooling of the heads is likely the first issue you will need to get right
The prop I use is 64" x 30" its pictured on my page photos made by Brent Thompson Props
I don't know of anyone doing flight training in a 701. I would guess because even if it is LSA compliant its still licensed as an experimental. There is an LSA instructor in Los Lunas at Mid-Valley http://mauldinaviation.services.officelive.com/default.aspx. She teaches in a FlightDesign CTLS. It has a Rotax engine (high wing) and Dynon panel. She trains LSA and LSA BFR's.
Custom instrument panels are now available directly from Zenith Aircraft Company exclusively for Zenith builders and owners. Pre-cut panel, power distribution panel, Approach Fast Stack harnesses, Dynon and Garmin avionics, and more.
Developed specifically for Zenith builders (by a builder) these videos on DVD are a great help in building your own kit plane by providing practical hands-on construction information. Visit HomebuiltHelp.com for the latest DVD titles.
