Cabin Heat for 601xlb w/Jab3300

Started this discussion. Last reply by Tim Juhl Nov 30, 2014. 1 Reply

My 601 was built in Fl and now that I have it in MI it's time to install cabin heat. Willing to pay fair price to anyone who might have one available.

Sounds good.

I plan on arriving at OZW by 10am to help remove plastic tarps from airplanes (we just had the hangar roofs re-painted). Then I should be there at least until dark.

See you then!

I emailed Sensenich about props and received the following response. Since your plane has gone through flight testing with the prop you have, I wouldnt worry too much about it. However; it is probably worth calling Jabiru for their up-to-date opinion of props for the 3300.


Hello Michael,


Jabiru USA performed the prop testing for our wood props on the Jabiru engines and would be the best source for this type of info. It is my understanding that the W64ZK-51 is the cruise prop for your application and the W64ZK-49 would be the standard prop. The W68ZK56-58 prop model would not be suitable for the Jabiru engine and is more commonly used on Continental and Lycoming engines.

I enjoyed the flight as well.

Very happy to share knowledge and experience with our 601XL's. Looking forward to more flying!

Hi Peter,

I would love to see your plane and go flying. Let me know when you want to go and hopefully I can work it into my schedule. I work pretty much 9-5 during the week. The best times for me are Tuesday or Wednesday evenings and weekends.

If you would like to see my build, I am in Brighton and usually working on it all weekend (not sure of my schedule this Sunday because it's Mothers Day).

Hi Peter,

Yes, I would be interested in sharing a hangar if we can save money. Doesnt matter to me which side of the field we are on.

If you call to check on price and availability, let me know what you find.

Hi Peter,

I got your message. Would love to go flying with you when you make it up here. By May I am hoping to be close to moving my plane to a hangar at OZW.

You should consider joining the local EAA chapter. We have a hangar at OZW and meet the first Thursday evening of every month. I am outnumbered by RV builders - it would be great to have a fellow Zodiac owner in the group.
