OLY IS BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Post by ollie » Wed Nov 11, 2009 3:40 pm

Yes, I know, you have all missed me!!!
Since my grass cutting exercise on the 27th April my 2 month repair turned into a 7 month repair but the good news is ZU-OLY is due back at FASI on the 17th for Legair to refit the Jabi motor and Airmaster prop on the 18th.
Watch this space for pics!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Boy it has been a looooooonggggg time :( :( :(
I have been having issues with my Jabi motor which prior to the grass cutting exercise was as sweet as can be :D :D
Since refitting after been sent to George for inspection etc. it appears to have been reassembled incorrectly with ignition at top dead centre instead of 25 degrees prior top dead centre. Needless to say much misfiring and running very rich :? :? :? :? :?
Engine to be removed, gearbox removed and timing corrected and refitting scheduled for this Saturday :)
Need to find a Free State virgin to sacrifice to ensure success. Cant find one Bains :( :( :(
