In Plane language would you guys explain what is going with Jabiru engines.

This brand has been used in Zenith aircraft for many years and  personally have owned two.

Other than typical heating issues in new engines, I didn't know of other problems until this morning..

Snow Loads

Anyone have experience with your 601 XL-B and snow loads ?

With this years heavy storms, I am concerned about the stress of two feet,  maybe three feet of snow on the wings.

Cantilever wings ,  snow,  over stress spars,  weight of snow.
