I tore the airplane apart several years ago to do the modifications. I did them, and decided to do the paint work. I did most of it, and ran out of energy.
I have decided to install a viking engine, and all of the firewall forward stuff. I have ordered everything and expect to see it soon.
I will be selling the entire firewall forward stuff, engine, cowl,--------------.
The engine will be sold as a core, and the rest of the stuff is new.
I will advertise it when I get it all apart.
I had been waiting for the wind to go down for two weeks. I finally had an evening where I felt it was low enough to do the test ride. It flew out with plenty of climb. It ran a little too cool and the left wing felt a little heavy. The trim worked. I got up to 120KTS while in the pattern, so I slowed it down and did some pattern work after I got higher.
I nailed the landing. She is a good flier.
I have ordered a new viking engine for my 601XL and m interested in talking with anyone that has already done that.
My motor and related paarts are not here yet, but I do have a couple of installation questions.
If anyone will talk to me about their installation, please let me know
