Using Zenith 601 and 701 aircraft for demonstration, this video was filmed at a hands-on workshop provided by the technicians of Jabiru-USA to train aircraft builders to properly design and install their firewall forward components.
The following systems are covered Engine crate unpacking and contents: Handling/removing the engine from the crate; explanation of the break in procedure accomplished by the factory prior to shipment. Engine Mounting techniques: Understand special considerations for mounting the engine on the airframe: engine mount to firewall alignment, engine onto the mount itself. Rubber engine mount hardware: male-female part direction is important. Prop flange removal/installation: The prop flange length you need may require demonstration of removing/re-installation of the factory installed flange. Oil Filter/Cooler: Installation of the oil cooler and the requisite connections are essential for proper operation. The oil cooler needs to occupy a specific location in the cowl. Muffler: The Jabiru supplied muffler provides the necessary heat muffs for both cabin heat and carb heat. Air Ducts: The key to proper cooling is the installation and customization of the fiberglass air ducts on each bank of cylinders. An in depth discussion of these issues is included. Carburetor: A detailed discussion of tuning the mixture of the Bing altitude compensating carb for prop load is discussed at length. A Jabiru economizer feature is described along with the needle jets involved for this.
