I have a dual throttle setup on my 701 with a Rotax 912ULS This is the kit that zenith provides with two cables. There seems to be a lot of pressure pulling the two throttle arms on the carbs back to full. If I take my hand off the throttle it will advance the RPM greatly. I have to tighten the throttle lock down very hard to stop this action. Rotax says not to change the carb springs. I took the springs off to see if it was a cable issue , but no problem with the cables. I did reattach the…Continue

Is there some type of boot for the two threaded rods that control the front nose wheel? Trying to keep engine compartment smells from entering the cabin area.

Howdy Jerry and thanks for the welcome. Hows the flight training coming? I am a CFI and soon I should have some hours of 701.
Hi Jerry i pulled out my EA -81 to heavy, will be flying off my paddock so i want my plane to be as light as i can get it.I picked up a low time jab at a good price.Do you no any body flying a jab powerd 701 would like to no how it performs.
#609 is very early and most engines of that time have since had later version heads fitted for better cooling.
Some engines run well for reasonable times and it may be a case for leaving alone.
You need to check what changes had already been done, if its already run 367 hrs the way to check for the scuffed piston skirts is to ground run at around 1800 rpm for 2 mins then shut down, if the prop stops quickly without springback and is stiff to rotate by hand then its a candidate for the cylinder basenuts and hone the barrels job. This is explained better by Roger Lewis on the Jabiru Yahoo group.
In the 701 depending on cowling, cooling of the heads is likely the first issue you will need to get right
The prop I use is 64" x 30" its pictured on my page photos made by Brent Thompson Props
Hi Jerry. Not done, but about to finally get the doors on the hanger. Will then move 701 to N29 and put the wings on. Let me know when you (if you) ever get to Magdalena. Best, jfs
Yeah to bad we can't be paid for building!
Sounds like great progress. Which Jan are you going with, the 2200?
