  12. My friend purchased a roll of fabric from Avi quip when they were closing down ,there are no identifying marks on fabric or the cardboard tube is there anyway of determining wether it is stits or ceconite .cheers Geoff.
  13. Yes at the carbys but I used a splitter box so only one cable attached to carby its self .
  14. Yes they work with dual throttles so long as you get the right one so passenger side isn't locked ,gets rid of all that linkage system mine works great
  15. Hi Lyndon I had similar situation on my 701 very close to the linkage so I removed mine and put in a vernier style throttle , cables eliminates all the linkages just have two cables to carbys
  16. I had the same during my training CFI reached over kill the engine and said don't fxxxxk this up ,first one was on down wind ,he did it about 20 times best training ever different conditions with no power really makes you think on how you approach you landing lot goes through your head .

  18. Taught myself to fly in 1987 in an easy riser still alive to tell the story what a thrill then tyro and on to my faithful Drifter.
  19. My zenith 701 is a hybrid as lot of the parts came from a savannah which Rick sourced for me ,world of knowledge and great bloke will be sadly missed RIP Rick .
  20. I used citra strip on my 701 none corrosive paint stripper painted it on with brush then wrapped it in glad wrap left it on for about an hour then pressure washed it off did a great job came back to nice clean aluminium.
  21. I just get one of those green scouring pads and spray wd40 on it and scrub all the crap off then it leaves a coating on to repel moisture never had any surface rust on the cables, if I ever any rust on them I would replace them can't be sure how far it has penetrated the cables .
  22. Hi Ron I will check mine tomorrow get the measurements for you their are eight each side . Cheers Geoff
  23. I never trust the over flow bottle l always check the radiator for being full,you just don't know if it has pulled the water back in to the radiator to the safe level.
