Thanks Pete, much appreciated!

I believe especially the 4 cylinder engines used in training schools are more affected.

Interesting to note the recomendation to rather have a "cruise climb" setting, with more speed and less rate of climb to assit with cooling, and also interesting to note their recommendation that during climb higher RPM is preferrable, as it places less stress on the engine.

Tx Len - interesting! My plane (DWR) was done at George in Jan. 2012. It got four new pistons. As I understand your SB, my plane is affected by the SB as the SB reads "... as from Jan. 2011..."

Must I assume DWR must come back for new circlips? (Seems that the 2200 engine uses "wire" clips and not circlips?).

Regards

Okey....

This means my plane also falls within this SL. This means that it may or may not have the affected circlips fitted????

My take on this:
Indicated man hours for this inspection is 7 hours times the R375 per hour is R2625 WELL spend for peace of mind flying in the future in my opinion. In the same time this will also be a chance to have a good internal inspection of other parts as well in the same go!

No biggy!

Thanks Len.

Wynand, as I understand the wire ones were discontinued around the same time in both 2200 and 3300 engines.

Thing is on Friday Charlene (Jabiru) said to me Len (Jabiru) said I do not have to worry - my plane has wire clips... now I just need confirmation!

I agree with Biggles, small price to pay for peace of mind.
You guys do not want to know how much 9 little pipes and a few O rings cost me on my Cessna... :cry:

Phew ... a sensible SL =D> Thanks Len.
Was scared it would affect factory assembled engines, thus introducing risk of rebuild errors.
Bit nasty for the chaps that have recently had work done.

I did see a recent post on an Australian blog where a chaps engine suffered the same fate as ZB's
just 12 hours after top-end overall. Seems the AMO made the Circlip mistake.

I think the factory should colour code the things so there is no doubt how they should be fitted.

have just had the 1000 hr overhaul plus blueprinting etc at nearly R30k only 3 weeks ago, and am I now expected to pay for a trip to Jabiru plus an inspection due to incompetence by an AMO????
Surely this should fall under some guarantee - If you take your car in for new rings and a week later they say they might have put the wrong rings in - would you expect to pay for their error??
