Re: Engine that does not turn round full throttle

Hello all, i always have the problems with the primary ignition.the primary ignition does not allow the engine to run properly. With new spark it's OK for just an hour.as if the ignition was not powerful enough. I thought of a worry with the primary ignition magnet (mounted upside down or demagneti...

Re: Wing Rigging Tools You Used

Foam pads and knee pads - you will be inside the fuselage and it can get awfully uncomfortable if you are kneeling on a hangar floor. I did a real number on my back and knees rigging the wings.

Re: Wing Mount block holes

I am close to finishing my other spar, and have been reviewing the discussions about up-drilling the wing mount block holes. Seems there are basically two options: - Per the plans, up-drill to 1/4" when mating the spars, then up-drill to 3/8" when installing on the aircraft. I understand ...

I want to mimic the pitot tube mount but that was installed while the wing was open. Thanks , Tim I did exactly w...

Re: Tachometer

My experience with a completely different tach is that if it is picking up the pulses off the voltage regulator, I had to try different terminals until I found the set that worked. It was an educated guessing game.....and also involved DIP Switch settings in the tach itself. Fun stuff. (I use a VDO ...

Re: NOT Securing Gear Leg Fairings

Direct C51 wrote:Robbie, thanks for the info. How long did you fly yours with the gear leg fairings floating?


About 65 hours before I noticed it was starting to chafe. It was not bad and had not become a problem, yet - but was headed that way.

Re: NOT Securing Gear Leg Fairings

I am getting ready for my first flight and still can't decide on a good method of holding my gear leg fairings in place. I've adhered some rubber channel on the top and bottom where it contacts the engine cowling and the wheel pant. I noticed they fit pretty tightly around the leg, and the rubber c...

Re: Aerocarb Alternatives

Thanks Jeff and others who responded. Your explanations and recommendations are excellent, I think they should be added as an addendum to the Aercarb manual! I also think the manual should include information about peening the screw threads, though the peening might better be done when assembled at...

Re: Aerocarb Alternatives

Jeff, I recently installed an AeroInjector on my Jabiru 2200 and have flown with it about 10 hours. As you know, the Jabiru manual wants the engine to run quite rich at full throttle to aid in cooling the engine. Doing this results in a very rich mixture at idle. I'd like to follow up on your sugge...
