Eldon, could you tell me a little about the Jabiru motor you put in 5611B? Did you buy it new? If not, who did you buy it from? What year model is it? Thanks in advance

Eldon, I sure would like to call you on the phone and pick your brain on you 701. It's a long way from Florida to Texas and I would feel better talking to someone who really knows the plane. If you wouldn't mind me calling you, would you please let me have your phone number. I'd love to talk. I'm retired and can call you at any time you prefer.

Welcome to the family.

I wish you the all the best with your project. If you ever get the chance to visit the Zenith factory please take the time to stop by our builder assist facility too. We are their newest and nearest builder assist facility and like to have visitors. We are right here in Mexico, Mo., not far from the factory.

Take care and good luck,

Bill Carter
