"Remain Calm and Build the Plane" - Shipping Damage

Hello Everyone,I have been building my Cruzer by purchasing individual kits as the "airplane in a box" approach was a bit intimidating at the time (would do it in hindsight).  Wings and empennage are complete.  I ordered my fuselage/controls kit in August.The kit consists of two separate crates.  One is 153 X 49 x16 inches @355 pounds and the other is a large, heavy duty standard shipping box of 62 X 44 X 30 inches @ 200 pounds.I was contacted on Monday that the kit was at the local terminal,…See More

Tim:  Sorry for the delay, but I don't look at this site very often.  I have a Jabiru 3300 4th gen and have been very happy with it. I have a 750 Cruzer with about 90 hours on it.  The CHT's have been fine, but the EGT's can become elevated if I run it at about 2600 RPM--if I run at 2500 or at 2800 it is fine.  Tom

Tim,  I have the STOL version, so I've had some cooling challenges.  Overall, extremely happy with the engine.  Tom Norris has your exact configuration and we've collaborated on a routine basis.  s/f jdn
