Hello all you fabulous Zenith owners/builders !

I am wondering if anyone has done the leg work on determining what parts or what has changed in the CH701 from 1994 build plans with a gross weight of 960 lbs to 1100 lbs with bigger engine options as well?

Somewhere I have a print supplement that outlines all the parts necessary to increase the gross weight. I’m currently finishing that upgrade (along with many others) right now on my early 701. 

This is fantastic Jason ! Thank you ! Now I can verify everything as my plane has wing tanks already.  I will check they are 10 gallons each.  I have the new drawings on order !  Thank you again !

I can’t remember but I think that was on the zenith site some time ago, I downloaded and printed it for my reference, I’m glad I did because it’s nowhere on the net now.
