Frisch Wiggler.

Finally getting round to my latest and greatest Wilga, or my mid life crisis model.

The Saito FG90R3 radial fits like it was made for it, and will hopefully negate the need for any lead...

As usual, it’ll probably take me years, but I thought if I posted a picture or two you guys could goad me into action!

Cheers, Ell.

You old charmer John! ;)

The engine is a real beauty, fits like a glove too without hacking away at the cowl.
I may get a keleo collector ring, or make one as per the Wizard of Oz!

Hope to see you soonish on the Mynd.

Just in the process of ordering 'proper' shocks for the wilga from www.wemo-ezfw.de - some really nice products if you're in the market for glider U/C too.

I'll post pics as soon as they land.

Elliot, make sure you have the cooling etc absolutely spot on for the engine, friend has just had a very expensive repair of his Saito R33, which lost a crankpin. Not the first apparently, and some have fitted a mod to ensure better fuel distribution to the cylinders to ensure they run at an even temp.

Thanks Frank, noted.

I aim to fit the very characteristic air control flaps on the cowl and blanks in the voids between cylinders too, hopefully the inlet area then should not be too great. I may fit some sensors for cylinder head telemetry too, wouldn't hurt. Haven't run this engine yet, very excited to hear it for the first time :)

You coming to wales for some towing?

Ell.
