Just completed TOH on my Zodiac with 3300 Jaburi. Actually, this is 2nd toh. Did an early service to correct stuck rings cause by Bing carb & poor oiling system. Corrected with throttle body carb with mixture control.
Recent service was due to burned exhaust valve. Added double ring kit, too. Run in numbers are great.
???Please report your experience with the Prince propeller on a Zodiac 601XLB with the Jabiru 3300 Engine. It would be nice to hear your Static, climb and cruise numbers. Knowing how the CHT & EGT temps are affected would be helpful. Fuel burn and other engine info please.???
I been reading about the P-tip carbon fiber coning prop by Prince. 58x48 are the dimension that they recommend for my A/C. My Current prop split on the tip and I am about to buy a new prop.
Recently, We replaced the Bing Carby w/ a Rotec's 40 TBI to my Jabiru 3300. Here the results: (After 25 hours running) Still using same throttle system and air box system.
1. Now can reach 2850 rpm in static run-up.
2. Shorter lift off distance.
3. Fuel burn @ cruise 5gph.
4. EGTs closer. CHTs cooler.
5. Able to control mixture.
6. Very easy Starts.
7. Only use electric fuel pump for first start of day w/ primer once.
(690 Hours total time.)
