Jabiru Cowl Oil Filler Door

I have a Jabiru cowl and the cowl has a depressed area for the oil filler door.  The kit includes a piece of fiberglass material, the hinge, the latch and hardware to manufacture the door.  Unfortunately there is no picture or instructions for making the door.  I have searched the forum with very little success.  Does anyone have a picture of their oil filler door with some inside and outside details?  Or do you know of some examples already posted on the forum?  THANKSSee More

Work on it daily

It is critical that I work on my airplane every day in order to make progress.  I find that if I have more than 24 hours between sessions it is way too hard to remember where I left the tools !  :-)See More

Jabiru Gen4 and Arion Aircraft FFW kit

I just received my generation 4 engine today.  I also received the firewall forward kit provided by Arion aircraft the US Jabiru dealer.  Everything looks great and it seems to be a very complete kit.  I will post more details at a later date, but the Jabiru engine and FWF kit combined seem to be the cheapest combination after the Viking engine and certainly the cheapest for a new engine.See More

Arion Aircraft was right next door to Jabiru USA, so I've met them including Nick Otterback, the owner.  It seems to have been a fairly seamless transition from Jab USA (later Jabiru North America) to Arion.  I've spoken to a few people who have done business with them since the transition and it has all been positive!

Thanks, John.

I have the Aeroelectric CD. I can see the requirements, but would feel more comfortable if someone with more knowledge than I have gives exact details.

John:

I noticed your comment on John Austin's flap actuator switch.

I don't know whether you are knowledgeable enough about a problem I have, but here goes:

I am installing  Ray Allen 301 sticks on my Cruzer. There are two issues: the use of two sticks to control a relay, AND in my instance, wanting to use the stick as the switch for the flaps. I can use the relays that come with the sticks for the trim motor as it is of low amperage and grounds through the relay. But, I cannot figure out how to have the stick relay trigger a relay to operate the flaps.

Is this within your knowledge base?
