Jabiru J170 built 2009 in Bundaberg. Only 160 hours, always hangared and maintained. Never pranged or mishandled. Flies beautifully and looks new inside and out. Looking at around $55K. Otherwise she'll just waste away.

Gawler, South Australia - Australia

Recommended Questions

Is it a C or D model?

Which series engine?





It's a J170C being built in 2009. The D model came out only a few years ago. (The D has the engine moved forward a few centimeters) Can't answer the question about what series the engine is other than to say it's whatever was supplied with the plane back in 2009. (All my paperwork/notes is in the hangar) It has had all the mods done to it. The price was meant to be $65K but considering $55K has had little response I'm not inclined to change anything.

This is the only engine I've ever come across with near-perfect leakdown results. ( 77/80 all 4 cylinders )

Maybe these results come from the 12.5 hour engine oil change time. Maybe there was a bit of luck in how the rings sat for the test.  But that engine is as good as the best of the new ones. New ones are not all the same.

And yes , I am a mate of Jab7252, but this is really true.
