Jabiru 2200 & 3300 Aircraft Engines
Introduction
This Engine Overhaul Manual has been written to cover the 4-cylinder 2200 and 6-cylinder 3300 Jabiru
engines. Many engine components are common to both engines, for example the cylinders, pistons,
connecting rods etc, as well as many accessories and consequentially the procedures in this Manual
apply equally to both engines.
Before attempting an overhaul the technician must be fully conversant with the appropriate Engine
Instruction & Maintenance Manual and any relevant Service Bulletins, Service Letters or other
manufacturer’s data. Current information is available from the Jabiru Aircraft (Australia) web site –
www.jabiru.net.au .
Overhauls must only be carried out by an approved person. Depending on the country and the
category of the aircraft this may be a Licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineer, an RA-Aus Level 2 or
equivalent. The responsibility for determining what qualifications are necessary to carry out an overhaul
belongs to the person carrying out the work.
Applicability
This manual is applicable to all 2200 and 3300 engine models and variants.
Reading This Manual
If you are reading this manual on a computer and want to be able to quickly zoom in and out: Hold
down the Ctrl key while rotating the wheel button on your mouse. In most programs this will instantly
zoom in or out.
To do the same thing on a modern laptop either plug in a wheel mouse as detailed above or use the
built-in track-pad. Put two fingers on the pad close together then move then apart diagonally. To
reverse, put two fingers on the pad at opposite diagonal points on the pad and bring them together
diagonally. This works on most modern PC-laptops.
This document has been created with hyperlinks between referenced items. So, when reading the
manual on a computer you can click on the page number of an item on the table of contents and the
computer will skip to that page. Also, if a paragraph says “refer to Section 5.9” – then you can click on
the “5.9” and automatically skip to that page. Similarly, if Figures or Tables are referenced.
To open a search window press “Ctrl-f”. Depending on the program, this will normally open a small
search window where you can enter keywords. For example, searching for the word “life” will allow you
to quickly find all reference to lifed maintenance items.
Degree Of Difficulty
In this manual we have used a “spanner scale” to help overhaulers approach a job. Anyone
considering undertaking a task in this manual must realistically assess themselves against this scale
and not attempt any task for which they lack knowledge or the required tools.

Manual layout
This Manual suggests that an engine overhaul will be conducted in three stages: Disassembly,
Inspection and assessment, and Assembly. The intention is that an engine will initially be stripped and
the mandatory replacement parts will be discarded. The remaining parts will be inspected and assessed
for return to service and a single parts order will then be placed.
Final assembly can take place once all the required parts are present.
Engine life
Engine life is expressed here in cycles, with 1 cycle being nominally in the vicinity of 1,000 hours, the
actual number of hours achieved being heavily dependant on the use of correct operating and
maintenance procedures and, to a lesser degree, operating conditions.
The expected life (expressed as time between complete overhauls) of a correctly operated and
maintained Jabiru engine is 2 cycles, with a top end overhaul taking place at 1 cycle.
Various components of the engine have a service life which is determined “on condition” – that is the
overhauler must examine the part and make a judgement as to the part’s suitability for re-use. Other
parts are evaluated both on condition and by a fixed maximum life – for example valves which are
replaced around 1,000 hours (See Sections 5.1, 5.2 and 5.3).
Engine life is measured via direct tachometer hour meters or “Hobbs” meters. Air switches or scaled
hour readings based on cumulative power output are not to be used to determine when overhauls or
services are due.
Complete overhaul, top end overhaul, wear tolerances
While the overall thrust of this Manual is complete overhaul, distinction must be made between a
complete overhaul and top end overhaul: the objective of a complete overhaul is to return the engine to
a condition where it can be reasonably expected to achieve 2 cycles, while the objective of a top end
overhaul is to return the top end of the engine (i.e. big ends, cylinders, pistons and cylinder heads) to a
condition where it can be reasonably expected to achieve 1 cycle to take the engine to the next
complete overhaul.
Consequentially the allowable wear tolerances for a top end overhaul, which is intended to achieve 1
cycle, will be different to the allowable wear tolerances for a complete overhaul, which is intended to
achieve 2 cycles.
Mandatory updates
Jabiru has been producing engines for many years, and over that time we have made some
improvements to our engine designs in light of operating experience. As a result we have compiled a list
of mandatory updates that must be made to older engines during overhaul.
During the Inspection and assessment stage these modifications will be addressed for each
Subassembly.
The requirements of these modifications must be taken into account when ordering parts.
Section 10 refers.
2.10 Mandatory replacement of parts

During overhaul (either complete or top end) some parts must be replaced regardless of condition: for
example all bolts, all seals, O-rings, etc. Detailed listings will be found in the Inspection and assessment
stage.
2.11 Recording


Careful records of all overhauling work must be completed. It is strongly recommended that the
overhauler print out the build sheets given as a part of this manual and use them to record all the details
of the job.
The overhaul booklets included in Section 9 are to be used for a top end overhaul – using only those
pages relevant to the parts of the engine being renewed.

In all cases this information refers to the configuration of the engine when it was originally built.
In many cases this information will be changed – such as if the engine is upgraded to a newer
configuration at overhaul. The overhauler must be aware of the potential for these changes and confirm
the engine configuration before beginning re-assembly.
2.12.3 Part Identification

Several components of the engines have been revised since the engines entered production. In some
cases important differences between parts cannot be distinguished easily by inspection. In these cases
identification markings have been applied to the parts. Where applicable, these markings will be shown
and explained in the body of the manual below.
2.12.4 Cylinder Numbering Convention

2.12.5 Cylinder heads
 The cylinder heads are machined from solid aluminium billet and are fitted to the cylinders by means of
6 retaining cap screws per head.
2.12.6 Valves, valve guides and seats
 Stainless steel valves run in press fitted aluminium/bronze valve guides and seat against nickel steel
valve seats that have been shrunk fit into the cylinder heads.
2.12.7 Cylinders
 Cylinders are machined in one piece from solid bar 4140 chrome molybdenum alloy steel, with the
pistons running directly in the steel bores.
2.12.8 Pistons
 The pistons are machined from aluminium castings and have 3 rings, the top 2 rings being cast iron to
compliment the chrome molybdenum cylinder bores. The gudgeon pin (wrist pin) is of the full floating
type and is retained by a circlip at each end.
2.12.9 Connecting rods

ends) are machined to fit the gudgeon pin. The big end bearing end caps are fixed to the connecting
rod by two Allen head cap screws through the rod into the end cap.
2.12.10
Crankshaft
 The crankshaft is machined from solid bar 4140 chrome molybdenum alloy steel and is stress relieved
using a heat treatment process. The journals are precision ground prior to being inspected by the MPI
(Magnetic Particle Inspection) method.
2.12.11
Crankcase
 The crankcase is machined from solid aluminium billet and consists of two halves divided along the
vertical centreline and fastened together by the studs and nuts that retain the cylinders. The mating
surfaces of the crankcase halves are joined without the use of a gasket, and the main bearing bores are
machined for the use of automotive slipper type bearings. Thrust bearings are located fore and aft of
the front double main bearing. The crankcase forms the bearings for the camshaft.
2.12.12

Camshaft
The camshaft is machined from solid bar 4140 chrome molybdenum alloy steel and is hardened using a
nitriding process.
2.12.13
Valve operating mechanism
 The camshaft is gear driven from the crankshaft. The camshaft operates cam followers that operate the
valves though pushrods and valve rocker arms. The valve rocker arms are made from steel, induction
hardened and mounted in the cylinder heads on steel shafts through low friction bronze/steel bushes.
2.12.14
Solid lifters
 2200 and 3300 engines earlier than serial number [22A-2068] or [33A-961] utilise solid lifters driven by
a 330° camshaft.
2.12.15
Hydraulic lifters
 2200 and 3300 engines from serial number [22A-2068] or [33A-961] use hydraulic lifters.
2.12.16
Roller Followers
 2200 and 3300 engines from serial number [22A-3596] or [33A-2539] use hydraulic lifters with roller
bases.
2.12.17
Lubricating system
 All engines employ a full pressure wet sump lubrication system. A positive-displacement pump driven
from the front of the camshaft provides oil pressure, and oil is circulated to the oil galleries through a
spin-on automotive type oil filter. An adaptor fitted beneath the oil filter feeds oil to the oil cooler.
 The primary lubrication sections of the engine – crankshaft, big ends etc – use this full pressure
lubrication system. Secondary lubrication sections of the engine such as the cylinder heads and
gearbox use low pressure lubrication systems while tertiary lubrication sections such as piston/bore
lubrication uses splash lubrication.
2.12.18
Cooling system
 Cooling is provided by air pressure that is built up above the cylinder heads in the ram air ducts and
discharged, with an accompanying pressure drop, down through the cooling fins on the cylinder heads
and cylinders and out of the lower rear of the engine cowling.
2.12.19
Induction system
 All engines are equipped with a BING brand pressure compensating float type carburettor. The inlet
manifold is mounted in direct contact with the engine oil sump, thus providing a relatively constant

2.12.20
Ignition system
 Dual transistorised ignition is provided by two flywheel mounted rare earth magnets that energise two
fixed coils mounted adjacent to the flywheel. The resulting high-voltage current is distributed to the
spark plugs by two gear driven distributors and associated high tension leads. The ignition system has
fixed timing and is fully redundant, self-generating, and does not depend on battery power for operation.
Spark is not generated below 275rpm crankshaft speed.
2.12.21
Electrical charging system
 An integral alternator, using rare earth magnets, provides alternating current for battery charging and
powering electrical accessories. The alternator is attached to the flywheel and is driven directly by the
crankshaft. The alternating current goes to a firewall-mounted regulator and thence to the aircraft
electrical system.
2.12.22
Starter motor
 The 1.5kw starter motor is mounted to the engine mounting plate at the left rear of the engine with the
drive gear positioned above and ahead of the flywheel when not engaged.
2.12.23
Sump
 The engines are equipped with a wet sump lubrication system. The sump is a cast aluminium item
fitted to the underside of the engine and also provides the mounting points for the induction system and
oil cooler.
2.13 Assessing An Engine

While not intended as a complete guide, the overhauler must be aware that the following factors will
affect the service life of an engine. With familiarity the overhauler will be able to look at an engine on
receipt, assess it and have an excellent idea of what will need to be done and what has caused any
issues. For example:
1. Overheating causes higher than normal oil consumption.
2. Hydraulic engines prior to oil fed rockers (hollow pushrods) have higher wear in rocker bushes.
3. Non adherence to published bulletins will shorten engine life. It is essential that operators keep upto-date with all updated Jabiru Service information.
4. Operation with defective valves (partially sealing valves) will end with structural failures and
expensive repairs.
5. Operation with poor quality or incorrect fuel will cause problems.
6. Oil/fuel additives are not to be used; some have proven to have highly detrimental effects on
engines.
7. Incorrect load (propellers) will shorten engine life.
8. The installation and matching of the engine and propeller to the aircraft are absolutely essential for
getting the best out of Jabiru Engines. Guidance material is available in the Jabiru Engine
Installation Manuals and Instruction & Maintenance Manuals.

Manual layout
This manual is intended for use by experienced technicians and while all processes will be explained as
clearly as possible, some knowledge is assumed. This manual is not intended to be sufficient reference
for a person with no other training to safely complete an overhaul.
The sections of the Manual are arranged in the stages in which work will be performed: the engine is
stripped, all components are either discarded (mandatory replacement items) or cleaned then inspected
and assessed for return to service and parts are ordered then the engine is assembled and finally
tested and run-in.
This Manual will describe the overhaul procedures by individual Subassembly of the engine, thus
dividing the manual, for all practical purposes, into a series of individual handbooks dealing with each
Subassembly in turn.
The disassembly stage will be described in a slightly different sequence from the Subassemblies used
in the Inspection and assessment and Assembly stages.
Many of the photographs throughout this Manual are of a 2200 engine – the procedures used are
common across Jabiru 4 and 6 cylinder engines, the only difference being the number of cylinders.
Since there are various overhaul practices and instructions of a non-specific nature, such as cleaning
and inspection, which apply equally to all basic engine components, these general instructions will be
grouped together where possible, to avoid repetition.
Directional References
In all references to orientation such as “the front of the engine” it will be assumed that the engine has
been installed in a tractor configuration and “front” refers to the propeller end of the engine while “rear”
refers to the flywheel end of the engine. “Left hand” and “right hand” refer to the same orientation when
standing behind the engine facing towards the front of the engine.
Top End Overhaul vs Full Overhaul
While the overall thrust of this Manual is complete overhaul some sections can also be applied to a top
end overhaul.
A top end overhaul means overhauling only the “top end” of the engine: big ends, cylinders, pistons and
cylinder heads. If a top end overhaul is being conducted then only those items listed in Section 5.3
should be removed from the engine during the engine strip procedure.
Note that greater wear tolerances may be used for a top end overhaul than would be used for a
complete overhaul as a top end overhaul is only required to achieve a life of 1 cycle, taking the engine
through to the next complete overhaul, whereas a complete overhaul is intended to return the engine to
a state where it can be expected to achieve a life of 2 cycles.
As for disassembly, on assembly only certain sections of this manual are relevant for a top end
overhaul. These are detailed in Section 6.
Special Classes of Overhaul
The following section discusses unusual cases, where an engine is presented to the overhauler where
something other than normal operation has taken place.
In general the procedures for dealing with these are the same as those for a normal overhaul, however
the overhauler must be particularly alert and vigilant for unusual features within the engine. For
example, during a severe prop strike the engine mount plate is often bent – sometimes only slightly –
and this sort of damage may be missed if the inspection process is in any way lax.
3.4.1 Bulk Strip
 A Bulk Strip is a special class of procedure where an engine is pulled apart, inspected and then put
back together again – generally using all the same components. It is generally called for when
something has happened to put the internal condition of the engine into doubt – such as a propeller
strike, in-flight failure or improper long term storage.
 In its purest form a bulk strip will not affect the life of the engine – so an engine which has a bulk strip at
a time in service of 700 hours will still only have 300 hours left to run after the bulk strip has been

completed and the engine re-assembled. However, often the customer will decide to incorporate a
mini-overhaul or top-end into the bulk strip.
The point of the bulk strip is to check several critical items inside the engine to ensure that it is suitable
to be returned to service. Depending on what has happened to the engine some parts will mandatorily
be replaced.
In addition to the potential damage to the engine which required the bulk strip in the first place it is
Jabiru policy that the engine must be made up-to-date and airworthy before being re-assembled. This
means that items which are listed as a “Mandatory Update” within this manual must be carried out
during a bulk strip as they would be during an overhaul. For example a crankshaft which has no
flywheel dowels must be updated to accept them or replaced by a new assembly during a bulk strip.
3.4.1.1

Jabiru Aircraft Pty Ltd
Bulk Strip Checklist
Personnel carrying out a bulk strip must be qualified to the same degree as those carrying out a full
overhaul.
The tools, equipment, sealants and compounds used in the bulk strip are the same as those used for a
full overhaul – the person carrying out this work must have all available.
Measure crankshaft and propeller flange run-out before disassembling the engine to help gauge the
potential severity of the damage to the engine. Use the procedure detailed in Section 4.4.1.
Engine strip and cleaning are the same as detailed in Section 4.
Check for mandatory updates as detailed in Section 4 and replace / rework parts as necessary.
Re-measure crankshaft and propeller flange run-out on the bench for best accuracy.
MPI test the propeller flange, crankshaft and connecting rods.
Replace all screws used in the propeller flange, flywheel and connecting rod attachments.
Replace O rings and gaskets as required.
Replace piston circlips with new parts
Assembly of the engine is as detailed in Section 7.
Fill out engine build sheets.
Carry out engine test runs
Carry out post-run inspections.
Complete a report for the customer, detailing what was found in the engine and which parts were
replaced.
3.4.2 Propeller strike procedures
 Propeller strike is categorized as being one of 2 types: low power strike and high power strike.
 A low power strike is defined as a propeller strike encountered while the engine is operating at a low
power setting (eg. while taxiing) with a standard Jabiru softwood propeller. Damage to the propeller
must extend no more than 100mm inwards from the blade tips.
 A high power strike is defined as a propeller strike or any other type of abrupt engine stoppage at any
other engine operating condition.
 The flywheel retaining cap screws (6) and propeller flange retaining screws (6) need to be replaced
after any prop strike.
3.4.2.1


Low Power Prop Strike Checklist
The flywheel retaining cap screws (6) and propeller flange retaining screws (6) need to be replaced
after any prop strike.
If a low power strike has been encountered then crankshaft runout must be checked as detailed in
Section 4.4.1 and if necessary the propeller flange and/or the crankshaft may need to be replaced.
When replacing the flywheel and propeller flange cap screws remember that they are held in place with
Loctite 620, which is very strong. They will be very difficult to undo and great care must be taken not to
break any of them. Lock the crankshaft from turning and then apply heat to the area around the cap
screws, and then try to crack each cap screw loose using an Allen key and a 3/8” breaker bar. This step
may involve heating the end of the crankshaft several times until you can safely undo each cap screw.
Details on removing these screws are included in Section 4.5.4. The procedure to be used for replacing
the screws in the propeller flange is the same.

Do NOT apply heat directly to the cap screws because this could weaken the screw material, but rather
apply the heat to the area around the cap screws. This is particularly important because you will need to
apply considerable turning force to undo each cap screw.
Clean out all threads and then prime the threads and the new cap screws with Loctite 7471 cure
accelerator and allow to dry. Apply a few drops of Loctite 620 Retainer to each thread and each cap
screw and tighten in sequence to the recommended torque value from the table of limits. Section 7.8
details the assembly of the flywheel and propeller flange to the engine – these procedures are also to

Jabiru Aircraft Pty Ltd
High Power Strike Repair Checklist
Jabiru policy for a high power strike is to Bulk Strip in accordance with Section 3.4.1.1: Disassemble,
clean and inspect the engine, replace the crankshaft and MPI inspect the connecting rods. Check and
carry out any mandatory updated. Re-assemble the engine, complete build sheets, test run, carry out a
post-run inspection and complete a report for the customer.
In particular, carefully check that the engine mount plate has not been bent.
3.4.3 Abrupt Engine Stoppage
 An abrupt engine stoppage may be caused by a number of different failures within the engine but
essentially any hard, harsh stoppage of the engine is considered to fall into this category. A piston
failure is a typical example.
 Abrupt engine stoppages are treated the same as high power propeller strike.

Engine Build Sheet / Checklists – fill out the necessary documents to record the details of the
engine. Prepare the necessary sheets to record the configuration / condition of the engine as it
is disassembled, cleaned and inspected.
Disassemble – disassemble the engine to the extent necessary for the proposed work – i.e. the
top end only for a top end overhaul or completely for a full overhaul.
Clean, Inspect, Measure And Assess – clean the engine components, measure wear items
and assess the engine’s parts for re-use. Inspect parts as required (i.e. visual or Magnetic NDT
processes). Refer to the mandatory replacement list given in Section 5 and if applicable,
remove and quarantine any superseded components. Refer also to all the supplementary data
applicable to the engine – such as Service Bulletins and Service Letters. This step is critical for
the overhauler to assess the overall condition of the engine.
Assemble – Re-assemble the engine.
Test Run – A proof run and then running-in is necessary before the overhaul is considered
complete. Running-in may be carried out in the air or, preferably, on a specialised ground-run
stand using special oversized cooling ducts and oil cooler.

Loctite 620 & Other Retaining Compounds
Figure 8 – Sealants, Compounds & Lubricants #3

Loctite 620 is designed for the bonding of cylindrical fitting parts. Typical applications include locating
pins in radiator assemblies, sleeves into pump housings and bearings in auto transmissions.
Particularly suitable for applications where temperature resistance up to 200°C is required. Used as a
ultra-strong threadlock. Loctite 620 is specified in several places in Jabiru Engine assembly where a
reliable bond is essential. When using it, follow the rules below:
WARNING
-
-
-



Failure to use Loctite 620 correctly can result in engine failure
Check use-by dates. Loctite 620 (like most other compounds used on the engine for sealing etc)
has a use-by date. Generally this is not printed on the bottle but can be found by contacting the
distributor and telling them the batch number.
Work fast. Loctite 620 can cure very quickly. All screws must be torqued to final settings as
quickly as practical. Anything more than a minute is not recommended, particularly if cure
accelerator spray (Loctite 7471) is used.
Only use as much as required/specified. Excess compound can make it nearly impossible to
disassemble the parts later.
Surface preparation is critical. Threads must be cleaned and prepared properly.
To Remove. Can normally be achieved by heating the screw to over 150°C using a pencil-point
gas burner. Minimise direct heat applied to the head of the screw as this can weaken the drive
socket – direct heat towards the thread as must as possible.
Loctite 290 is designed for the locking and sealing of threaded fasteners. Because of its low viscosity
and capillary action, the product wicks between engaged threads and eliminates the need to
disassemble prior to application. The product cures when confined in the absence of air between close
fitting metal surfaces and prevents loosening and leakage from shock and vibration. The product can
also fill porosity in welds, castings and powdered metal parts.
Loctite 262 is designed for the permanent locking and sealing of threaded fasteners. Typical
applications include the locking and sealing of large bolts and studs (up to M25 ). A medium strength
threadlock.
Loctite 243 is designed for the locking and sealing of threaded fasteners which require normal
disassembly with standard hand tools. Particularly suitable for applications on less active substrates
such as stainless steel and plated surfaces, where disassembly with hand tools is required for servicing.
A medium-strong threadlock. Typically used for cap screws into castings or Aluminium.



A good torque wrench is an essential tool for maintaining and overhauling Jabiru Engines. It’s
important to realise however that even the best wrench needs calibrating occasionally. This can be
done using a dead weight on the end of a known arm or – preferably – sending the wrench away to be
calibrated. Note that Civil Aviation Authorities generally require that the tool be calibrated in a way
which is traceable to a NATA-standard laboratory.
A “Crowsfoot” extension as shown in Figure 31 is also necessary – it allows high torque settings to be
used on small nuts without damaging them. The crankcase through bolt nuts used on Jabiru engines
are a good example of an application suitable for a crowsfoot extension. However, when using the
extension as shown in Figure 39 the extra length will throw off the torque setting of the wrench. This
must be corrected using the following formula:
.




L1 is the distance from the middle of the grip of the handle to the centre of the wrench drive lug
L2 is the distance in the direction of the handle from the centre of the wrench drive lug to the centre of
the nut socket of the adaptor.
For example: a nut needs to be tensioned to 30lb.ft. The torque wrench is 12” long and the crowsfoot
extension is 2” long. The extension is oriented as shown in Figure 39. This means that the torque
wrench must be set to:
If the extension is oriented at 90° to the wrench as shown in Figure 40 then no correction is needed
because L2 is zero.

Torque Application Procedure
Good torque application technique is essential if an accurate bolt torque reading is going to be
obtained.
Firstly the nut must be tightened smoothly. Any jerks or bumps can cause the torque reading to be
obtained prematurely.
The torque must be obtained while the nut is turning. If you stop to reposition the torque wrench
and then the required torque reading is obtained without the nut turning, the nut needs to be
loosened a little and then tightened again so the torque reading is obtained while turning.
Unless specified otherwise all torque settings given in this manual are “dry” – i.e. no special
lubricant is applied to the threads or parts. Where directed otherwise it is vital that the directions are
followed exactly.

Safety Wire



Only stainless steel safety wire is used on the Jabiru Aircraft Engine.
There are two methods of safety wiring; the double-twist method that is most commonly used, and
the single-wire method used on screws, bolts, and/or nuts in a closely-spaced or closed-geometrical
pattern such as a triangle, square, rectangle, or circle. The single-wire method may also be used on
parts in electrical systems and in places that are difficult to reach.
When using double-twist method of safety wiring, 0.032 inch minimum diameter wire should be used
on parts that have a hole diameter larger than 0.045 inch (1.1mm). When using the single-wire
method, the largest size wire that the hole will accommodate should be used.
WARNING




Care must be taken not to confuse steel with Aluminium wire.
There are many combinations of safety wiring with certain basic rules common to all applications.
These rules are as follows.
a. When bolts, screws, or other parts are closely grouped, it is more convenient to safety wire them
in series. The number of bolts, nuts, screws, etc., that may be wired together depends on the
application.
b. Drilled boltheads and screws need not be safety wired if installed with self-locking nuts.
c. To prevent failure due to rubbing or vibration, safety wire must be tight after installation.
d. Safety wire must be installed in a manner that will prevent the tendency of the part to loosen.
e. Safety wire must never be over-stressed. Safety wire will break under vibrations if twisted too
tightly. Safety wire must be pulled taut when being twisted, and maintain a light tension when
secured (Figure 43).
f. Safety-wire ends must be bent under and inward toward the part to avoid sharp or projecting
ends, which might present a safety hazard.
g. Safety wire inside a duct or tube must not cross over or obstruct a flow passage when an
alternate routing can be used.
h. Check the units to be safety wired to make sure that they have been correctly torqued, and that
the wiring holes are properly aligned to each other. When there are two or more units, it is
desirable that the holes in the units be aligned to each other. Never over-torque or loosen to
obtain proper alignment of the holes. It should be possible to align the wiring holes when the
bolts are torqued within the specified limits. However, if it is impossible to obtain a proper
alignment of the holes without under-torquing or over-torquing, try another bolt which will permit
proper alignment within the specified torque limits.
i. To prevent mutilation of the twisted section of wire, when using pliers, grasp the wires at the
ends. Safety wire must not be nicked, kinked, or mutilated. Never twist the wire ends off with
pliers; and, when cutting off ends, leave at least four to six complete turns (1/2 to 5/8 inch long)
after the loop. When removing safety wire, never twist the wire off with pliers. Cut the safety wire
close to the hole, exercising caution.
j. Install safety wire where practicable with the wire positioned around the head of the bolt, screw,
or nut, and twisted in such a manner that the loop of the wire fits closely to the contour of the
unit being safety wired.
When using a wire twister (safety wire pliers), grip the wire in the jaws of the wire twister and slide
the outer sleeve down with your thumb to lock the handles or lock the spring-loaded pin.
Pull the knob, and the spiral rod spins and twists the wire.
Squeeze handles together to release wire.
WARNING
When using wire twisters, and the wire extends 3 inches beyond the jaws of the twisters, loosely
wrap the wire around the pliers to prevent whipping and possible personal injury. Excessive
twisting of the wire will weaken the wire.

4.3




As each part is removed from the engine it should be set aside for later evaluation – in our factory
engine workshop we use disposable plastic containers to keep all of the smaller components (cap
screws, bolts, nuts, washers, etc) separate during disassembly.
Preliminary Cleaning
Inspect engines carefully before cleaning. The patterns of dirt, oil etc can indicate damage or wear and
provide valuable information of which tasks should be added to the overhaul or inspection process.
The engine must be cleaned externally before it is removed from the aircraft. A stiff-bristled brush,
solvent (de-greaser), water and some compressed air will usually be adequate for this task.
Remove The Engine From The Aircraft
Remove the cowlings and the spinner. Remove the propeller. Disconnect both cables from the battery
and remove the battery from the aircraft. Disconnect the earth cable and free the starter motor power
cable from the wiring loom.
Remove the muffler and then remove the oil drain plug and drain the oil from the engine. Remove the
ram air ducts. Disconnect all engine control cabling and disconnect the air intake duct from the
carburettor. Remove the oil filter, the oil filter adapter and oil cooler.
Disconnect and remove all engine wiring: the signal wiring from the oil pressure and temperature
senders and fuel pressure sender (if fitted), the low-tension ignition wiring and the alternator wiring.
Remove the oil pump from the front of the engine and undo the cap screws that hold the front oil seal
around the crankshaft.
Remove the engine from the airframe and place it onto the engine stand, holding it in place with 3 bolts
through the propeller flange.
Engine Stand
We recommend that an engine stand be used to hold the engine vertically during all workshop
procedures.
In our engine workshop we use a spare propeller flange bolted to the workbench. The propeller flange
on the engine is then bolted to that flange so that the engine is held in an upright position as shown in
Figure 44.
You may find it convenient to simply bolt the propeller flange of the engine directly to the workbench
using 3 suitable bolts.
Note that for a top end overhaul the engine can remain in the aircraft, although the use of an engine
stand may be more convenient and is usually faster.

Special Checks Before Disassembly
4.4.1
In-Situ Propeller Flange & Crankshaft Run-Out Measurement
Figure 45 – Measuring Propeller Flange & Crank Run-Out





This procedure is used to gauge the severity of any potential damage to the crankshaft or propeller
flange before carrying out a bulk strip.
Remove one spark plug from each head.
Carefully sand off paint on crank diameter and prop flange where dial indicator will be located. Applying
a little lubricant (such as greaseless lubricant spray) to the area being measured is also recommended.
Position dial indicator onto crank as shown above and eliminate main bearing clearance by bearing
down on crank when rotating. Rotate crankshaft to measure crankshaft run out. 0.01 - 0.03 mm is
normal, but if run out exceeds of 0.08 mm the crankshaft must be replaced.
Position dial indicator onto prop flange as shown above, eliminate end float by either pulling or pushing
flange when rotating. Rotate prop flange to measure the face run out. 0.02 - 0.06 mm is normal, but if
run out exceeds 0.08 mm then the prop flange must be replaced.
4.4.2



Engine Through-Bolt Check
This procedure is used to check if an engine may have fretting of the crankcase halves before
disassembly. This procedure is not suitable for nuts installed with Loctite 620.
Using a calibrated torque wrench, check the lower engine through bolt nuts. Use a torque setting of
28lb.ft for 3/8” bolts or 32lb.ft for 7/16” bolts.
These nuts were originally installed at 30 & 35lb.ft respectively (Table 9), so if the nuts move at the test
torques above it can indicate that the through bolt tension has reduced, possibly due to fretting of the
crankcase halves. If this is found before a top end inspection the overhauler may have to fully strip the
engine – it is recommended that they contact Jabiru Aircraft Australia for guidance.
WARNING
Through-bolts & studs are highly loaded. Never torque nuts above the torque setting given in Table
9 or damage to the bolts will result. Accurate wrench calibration & compensation for any adaptors
used is vital when working on these parts.
The results of this test are an indicator only. False negatives and positives are possible. If in
doubt, disassemble the engine and inspect to be sure.

Flywheel Cap Screws
Now the cap screws that hold the flywheel to the crankshaft must be removed.
These cap screws are held in place with Loctite 620, which is very strong, and they will be very difficult
to undo. Great care must be taken not to break any of them or round the drive sockets of the cap
screws. Due to the high stress on the screws and tools the Allen key must be in “as-new” condition with
no wear to its drive faces.
Apply heat to the area around the cap screws, shielding the magnets in the alternator from direct heat,
and then try to crack each cap screw loose using an Allen key and a 3/8” breaker bar.
As excess heat can de-magnetise the alternator magnets overhaulers may prefer to remove the magnet
ring before attempting to remove the flywheel.
This step can take an hour or more and it may involve heating the flywheel (thus the end of the
crankshaft) several times until you can safely undo each cap screw.
Do NOT apply heat directly to the cap screws as this can weaken the screw material. Instead, apply
the heat to the area around the cap screws. This is particularly important because you will need to apply
considerable turning force to undo each cap screw.
It is good practise to wear leather gloves during this task to protect your hands from the heated items
such as the heat shield and the flywheel.
WARNING
Used flywheel cap screws must be discarded and replaced with new items.

in the area where the bolts enter the housing. If the Loctite is not heated to soften it, there is a
possibility that the bolts will shear off and a new starter housing will be required.

General
From this stage on the engine will be divided into separate subassemblies and each subassembly will
be subjected to 3 distinct stages of inspection and assessment:
1. Check for mandatory update items
2. Cleaning
3. Inspection:
a. Visual – scratches, burnt, bent, etc.
b. Dimensional – precise measurements to spec
c. Structural – MPI (Magnetic Particle Inspection) on steel parts
At the end of this process a single parts order can be placed with your local Jabiru dealer.
Mandatory updates
All engines must be checked for mandatory update items – these are intended to bring older engines up
to the current specification and improve reliability and serviceability.
Mandatory updates must be performed during overhaul.
Refer to Section 12 for details.
Mandatory Discard
For some parts there are certain incidents which can result in hidden, internal damage - for example the
crankshaft of an engine which has had a severe prop strike. In these cases the part can be within
tolerances for wear and straightness and even test well with a MPI – but experience has shown that the
part may fail if returned to service.
Any part for which this information is known will have a “Mandatory Discard” note in the inspection
section below.
This document is controlled while it remains on the Jabiru server. Once this no longer applies the document becomes uncontrolled.

Cleaning
5.7.1 Materials and Processes
 Two processes are involved in cleaning engine parts; degreasing to remove dirt and sludge (soft
carbon) which form the bulk of the cleaning required, and the removal of hard carbon by decarbonizing,
brushing or scraping and grit-blasting.
 In many cases this manual recommends washing parts using Kerosene. In these cases any similar
suitable solvent (such as diesel fuel) may be used at the discretion of the overhauler.
5.7.2 Degreasing
 Degreasing is best accomplished by immersing or flooding the part in kerosene or a suitable
commercial solvent such as Varsol or Perm-A-Chlor and agitating with a brush.
 Overhaulers are warned against the use of any water-mixed degreasing solutions containing caustic
compounds or soap. Such compounds, in addition to being potentially harmful to aluminium, may
become impregnated in the pores of the metal and cause oil foaming when the engine is returned to
service.
5.7.3 Removal of hard carbon
 While the degreasing solution will remove dirt, grease and soft carbon, deposits of hard carbon will
almost invariably remain on some interior surfaces. To facilitate removal, these deposits must first be
loosened by immersion in a decarbonising solution (usually heated). A variety of commercial
decarbonising agents are available, including products such as Redik DKT, Gunk, Penetrol, etc. Only
hydrocarbon based decarbonisers should be used: refer to the note above regarding water-mixed
degreasing solutions.
 Decarbonizing will usually loosen most of the hard carbon deposits remaining after degreasing; the
complete removal of all hard carbon, however, generally requires brushing or scraping. All of these
operations demand care on the part of the mechanic to avoid damage to machined surfaces. In
particular, wire brushes and metal scrapers must never be used on any bearing or contact surface.
 At the conclusion of cleaning operations, rinse the parts in petroleum solvent, water, dry and remove
any loose particles by air blasting. Apply a liberal coating of engine oil or other anti-corrosion product to
all steel surfaces.

Inspection

The inspection of engine parts during overhaul is divided into three categories, visual, dimensional and
structural. The first and last categories deal with the structural defects in parts while the second is
concerned with the size, shape and fit.
Visual inspection should precede all other inspection procedures.
Dimensional inspections should be carried out in accordance with the measurements and tolerances
detailed in the Table of Limits.
Structural integrity of steel components must be determined by MPI (Magnetic Particle Inspection).
5.8.1

Return to service repair work
Some components will require repair work in order to be returned to service and this work will be
performed as part of the Inspection and assessment stage.
5.8.2 High temperature operation
 The insides of pistons and the crankcase should be visually inspected during disassembly for burnt-on
oil deposits that would indicate overheating and/or operation in extreme conditions.
 If such evidence of overheating is seen then the engine cooling arrangement must be inspected and
possibly modified for greater cooling airflow before the overhauled engine is refitted. The Jabiru Engine
Installation Manuals refer.
5.8.3 Bearing surfaces
 All bearing surfaces should be examined for scoring, galling and wear.
 Some scratching and light scoring of aluminium bearing surfaces in the engine will do no harm and
should not be considered cause for rejection of the part, provided it falls within the tolerances set forth
in the Table of Limits. Even though the part may come within specified limits it should not be
reassembled into the engine unless inspection shows it to be free of other serious defects.
 All journal surfaces should be checked for galling, scores, misalignment and out-of-round condition.
Shafts, pins etc, should be checked for straightness. This may be done in most cases by using vee
blocks and a dial indicator.
5.8.4 Gears
 All gears should be examined for evidence of pitting and excessive wear. Bearing surfaces of all gears
should be free from deep scratches. However, minor abrasions may be dressed out with a fine abrasive
cloth. In particular the starter ring gear and the matching gear from the starter clutch are susceptible to
damage and must be checked carefully.
5.8.5 Corrosion on stressed areas
 Pitted surfaces in highly stressed areas resulting from corrosion can lead to ultimate failure of the part.
The following areas should be carefully examined for evidence of such corrosion: the fillets at the edges
of crankshaft main and journal surfaces, connecting rods and the camshaft.
 If pitting exists on any of the surfaces mentioned to the extent that it cannot be removed by polishing
with crocus cloth or other mild abrasive, the part must be rejected.

5.8.6 Magnetic particle inspection (MPI)
 All steel parts should be inspected by the magnetic particle inspection (MPI) method. The successful
detection of structural failure by magnetic particle inspection demands skill and experience on the part
of operating personnel.
 Too rigid an interpretation may result in the rejection of a sound part, while on the other hand, a part
showing a dangerous indication may be returned to service as a result of a too casual diagnosis. In
general, areas of stress concentration must be watched closely for fatigue cracks. These areas include
such locations as keyways, radii in the corners of the crankshaft, gear teeth, small holes and fillets.
5.8.7 Damaged parts
 Abnormal damage such as burrs, nicks, scratches, scoring, or galling should be removed with a fine oil
stone, crocus cloth, or any similar mildly abrasive substance.
 If scratches or galling are removed from a bearing surface of a journal it should be buffed to a high
finish with a linishing wheel.
 Flanged surfaces that are bent, warped, or nicked may be repaired by lapping to a true surface on a
surface plate. Again the part should be cleaned to be certain that all abrasive has been removed. Pipe
tapped threads (NPT) must not be tapped deeper in order to clean them up, because this practice will
invariably result in an oversized tapped hole.
 Following any repairs of this type, the part should be carefully cleaned in order to be certain that all
abrasive has been removed and then checked with its mating part to assure that the clearances do not
exceed those detailed in the Table of Limits.
5.8.8 Replacement of studs or broken cap screws
 The method of removing studs or broken cap screws depends on the type of stud or cap screw and if it
is intact or broken.
 The procedure for removing studs or broken cap screws is as follows:
1. If there is sufficient thread area available on the stud, use a collet grip tool consisting of a tapered
collet that threads onto the stud and a housing that slips over the collet as shown at right.
Tighten the bolt on top of the housing and draw the collet into the housing to load the puller onto the
stud with a tight grip. Withdraw the stud by turning the housing. Heat may be required to loosen the
Loctite.
2. If a cap screw or stud is broken and there is not enough thread exposed to use the collet type tool,
drill a small hole into the stud using a high-performance drill bit such as a cobalt high speed bit. Use
a pilot bushing to guide the drill into the centre of the stud if it is broken close to or beneath the
surface of the parent metal. Redrill and enlarge the hole to suit the proper size extractor, shown in
Figure 62. Using the extractor, remove the stud. Again, heat may be required to loosen the
Locktite. The RIDGID extractor is available from Ridge Tool Co. of Elyria, Ohio, USA or most tool
suppliers. It is a very effective tool and the only screw extractor recommended by Jabiru Aircraft.

There are main 2 types of flywheels: alloy centred and the later model steel centred (commonly called
the ‘starfish’ centre).
If you have the alloy centred flywheel, check that the flywheel is dowelled to the crankshaft with 3 x
6mm dowels and retained with 6 x 5/16” x 1¼” UNF cap screws. Crankshafts using ¼” screws for
flywheel retention must be replaced.
Engines with the “starfish” flywheel are retained with 6 x 5/16” x 1” or 6 x 3/8” x 1” UNF cap screws.
The flywheel end of the crankshaft should look like the “5/16”” or “3/8”” photos in Figure 63.
If this is not the case and the flywheel end of your crankshaft looks like the “Old” photo then the
crankshaft and flywheel must be modified before return to service and a new crankshaft timing gear
must be purchased. Details of the process are given in Section 12.4.2.
If the drilling and dowelling modification is required, complete the other cleaning and inspection steps
below to determine if the crankshaft is fit for return to service in all other respects before sending it
away for modification.
Several different length dowels have been used: older flywheels without the “starfish” use 24mm long
dowels. Engines using the “starfish” initially used 20mm long dowels while later versions reverted to
24mm. Refer to Section 13 for serial number ranges. In all cases the dowels are 6mm in diameter.

Starfish Flywheel Adaptor
Current engines use a steel adaptor between the crankshaft and
the flywheel, called a “starfish” because of its shape (shown in
Figure 64). While not mandatory it is recommended that at
overhaul engines are updated to this arrangement. The aluminium
flywheel and alternator rotor are among the parts required for the
update – contact Jabiru Aircraft for details.

Clean away all paint from the front of the crankshaft and the propeller flange.
Clean out all threaded holes in the ends of the crankshaft with a 5/16” or 3/8” UNF tap as appropriate
then wash and blow out all debris from the holes.
Wash the crankshaft thoroughly with kerosene, taking care to remove all of the sludge from the inside of
the front main bearing: careful use of a small scraper will aid sludge removal. Individually clean each
main to big end oil way drilling using a small brush or similar.
Blow out all of the oil ways, dry the crankshaft and coat with engine oil or other corrosion preventative.

Inspection
The crankshaft and propeller flange must now be checked for straightness: lay the crankshaft between
vee blocks and use a dial indicator on a magnetic base to check that the runout as measured at the
very front of the crankshaft is within the range 0.01 to 0.05mm. Upper limits for crank run-out are given
in Table 10.
Now mount the propeller flange onto the crankshaft with 3 cap screws and position the crankshaft so
that all end float is negated then check the propeller flange for straightness at the outer face of the
flange with the dial gauge.
Typical flange run-out should be in the range of 0.02 - 0.06mm. Upper limits are given in Table 10.
Run-out exceeding these limits would indicate the requirement for a new propeller flange, assuming that
the crankshaft is within tolerance.
Note that this measurement can also be carried out with the crank fitted into a crankcase – provided
that the case is fitted with the front, rear and thrust bearings.
Measure the main and big end journals with a micrometer. The main bearing and big end journals must
measure in the limits given in Table 10. Earlier cranks are 47.918 to 47.938 while later parts are 47.930
to 47.950. Ultimately the clearance between crank and bearings determines if a crank can be re-used.
This must be checked before deciding if a replacement is necessary or not – acceptable clearances are
given in Table 12.

Measurements should be taken at several points around each journal and averaged.
Note that it is unusual to find any significantly out-of-round journals.
Check the oil holes in each journal (main and big end) for a radius. If a radius is not present then use a
fine linishing or polishing wheel to create a radius – there must be no sharp edges that could form a
stress point anywhere on the crankshaft.
Check around the centre holes in the crank web for a radius: once again there must be no sharp edges
that could form a stress point anywhere on the crankshaft. Older engines are more susceptible to this
but new cranks should still be checked.
A polishing wheel in a Dremel can be used to put a radius on the crank centre holes - see Figure 66.
The overhauler must also check all oil galleries in the crankshaft are clear before installation. This can
be done by feeding a piece of steel wire through the galleries. Note that this is also necessary with
brand-new crankshafts to ensure that there is no swarf or other debris lodged in a gallery.
The crankshaft and propeller flange must now be
inspected for structural integrity with MPI (Magnetic
Particle Inspection).

It may be necessary to lightly polish the inner bore of the little end of the rod. A build up of burnt oil or
varnish here can make fitting the gudgeon pin difficult. This can be done by hand using fine emery
paper or using a fine-grade flapper wheel on a die-grinder or Dremel. Only oil deposits must be
removed – not metal.
Wash the connecting rods thoroughly with kerosene and blow dry.

Inspect each rod visually for straightness and marking. Note that each rod/end cap pair is marked with a
unique ID number and must only be refitted as a matched pair.
The connecting rods must now be inspected for structural integrity with MPI (Magnetic Particle
Inspection). Note that for MPI the rod must be as clean as possible – usually all burnt oil deposits must
be removed.
The rods must be subjected to a thorough visual inspection for straightness / trueness. As noted
above, any rod which has been subjected to unusual loads must be discarded but otherwise a careful
visual inspection of these parts is sufficient. Uneven bearing wear or abnormal little end wear are
indicators of an untrue rod.

Clean the case thoroughly after any such
work.

If a hole is not present then position the fuel pump spacer over the stud holes, mark a position near the
bottom of the cavity and drill a 1/8” hole through the crankcase wall as arrowed in the photos above.
Radius each side of the hole and clean away any drilling debris.
Very old 2200 engines did not have a “strainer” fitted to the oil pump pickup. For these engines a
strainer must be fitted at overhaul – this may also require fitting a new oil pump pickup tube.

Contact Jabiru Aircraft or our local representative for more information
5.10.1.3 Mandatory Discard

In any case where fretting is found all engine through-bolts and studs must be replaced with new items.
This is because fretting is a sign of stress within the crankshaft assembly components and means that

from the left hand case and flush the galleries through. Clean out all threaded holes with the correct
size UNC tap then wash and blow out all debris from the holes. Use a scraper made from Perspex or
similar material to remove any sealing compound from the jointing surfaces.
Blow through all oil galleries and take particular care that absolutely no dirt or debris remains in any part
of the cases. Use a piece of steel wire to push through all oil galleries to check for debris – this is
particularly important if the case has been line bored.




Inspect the cases for fretting around the main bearing posts. If fretting can be detected (either by
observation and/or by feeling roughness against your fingernail across the affected area – see Figure
70) then it must be corrected by having both case halves surface skimmed and the bearing tunnels
bored to the correct dimensions before return to service.
If fretting has occurred then a complete set of new crankcase studs must be purchased and fitted during
assembly, and the crankcase dowels must be shortened at one end by 0.5mm, then re-radiused / deburred. A detailed explanation of crankcase fretting is included in this manual in Section 12.3.
Clamp the case halves together using the old studs & nuts with 8mm packers under the nuts, torque to
the value given in Table 9 for through bolts (use the value appropriate to the through bolt thread on the
particular engine). Torque in 3 stages, working from the centre studs out to the front & rear studs.
Measure the main bearing and camshaft bore sizes horizontally and vertically as shown in Figure 71.
Figure 71 – Measuring Crankcase Bearing Tunnel


The main bearing tunnel and the camshaft tunnel must both measure within the limits of Table 10. If the
crankcase is not within these tolerances then both case halves must be surface skimmed and the
bearing tunnels line bored to the correct dimensions before the crankcase can be returned to service.
Again note that the target of these measurements is to get the crank – bearing clearance in the target
range (Table 12). Depending on the measurements of the crank etc values outside those listed may
still be acceptable provided that the clearances are within tolerance. Crank-main bearing clearances
and cam-case clearances must be within the limits specified in Table 12.
Where cases have been skimmed the main bearing and cam tunnels must be line bored per Table 10
for correct bearing fit up. This job can only be done by competent machine shop operators.

Figure 72 – Removing Studs and Dowels from Crankcase

If the case is to be surfaced and line-bored then all dowels and studs must be removed from the
crankcase. Use a collet type stud remover to unscrew the retained studs from the crankcase. Gentle
application of heat will assist the removal as shown above. Extract the dowels from the lower stud
holes – in Figure 72 an expanding puller is being used to pull the dowels out of the case. Clean the
stud holes with an M10x1.5 tap (an old stud with grooves cut in the thread to act as a tap may also be
used) and clean and dry the cases.
5.10.1.6 Main Bearings


Examples of main bearing wear are shown below.
Note that the use of automotive oils or oil additives has proven to cause very rapid wear in Jabiru
engines. An air-cooled aero engine is operating at higher power settings and significantly higher
temperatures than a car engine – and Jabiru engines hold less oil than a normal automotive engine.
This puts a lot more pressure on the oil and unless the oil is specifically designed for the application it
can break down, leading to rapid wear of the engine.

If required, the hydraulic lifters can be dismantled and cleaned quite simply using a solvent such as
kerosene. However, extreme care is needed to make sure that each lifter is re-assembled correctly.
The lifters contain many small parts which must be oriented correctly for the valving of the lifter to work.
Note also that different lifters often have subtly different internal parts. Generally, as the lifters are
relatively cheap, it is preferable for the overhauler to fit new parts instead of cleaning the old lifters.
The base of the inside of the lifter tends to accumulate sludge and must be cleaned if it is to be re-used.
Lifters must be cleaned and dried thoroughly before re-installation.

5.10.2.4 Inspection



If hydraulic lifters are removed for servicing they must be inspected for wear on the camshaft contact
face. Note that the lifters have a slightly convex (dome-shaped) base. A straight edge placed over the
base (Figure 75) should not quite sit flat on the base – a small gap must be visible at either side. A lifter
which has worn flat must be discarded. The lifter must also be replaced is there is any other adverse
wear of the lifter base – such as galling or pitting of the working surface.
Before installation all hydraulic lifters must be polished around their base as shown below to remove
any burrs and to polish off the sharp corner which can otherwise damage the cam. This is done using a
“Scotch Brite” wheel on a bench grinder or similar – very little material is removed, just enough so that
the corner feels smooth instead of sharp.
Solid lifters require a careful inspection at full overhaul. The camshaft contact face of the solid lifter is
flat and can be checked for wear using a straight edge.

Hydraulic lifter engine camshafts have 2 dots on the flange and 2 rings around the front of the
camshaft to indicate a hydraulic lifter camshaft. The photos above show a hydraulic lifter (260°
duration, non-roller) camshaft.
If the camshaft in your hydraulic engine has a single ring around the front (285° duration) it must
be replaced with a current 2 ring camshaft and new lifters to suit at overhaul.
Engines equipped with roller followers use a different cam which is not marked with ID rings. This
part can be easily identified by the more rounded shape of the cam lobes (Figure 77)

The camshaft and the camshaft drive gears must now be inspected for structural integrity with MPI
(Magnetic Particle Inspection).
The overhauler must be aware that of the different types and combinations of camshafts and lifters
fitted to Jabiru engines over the years currently only three combinations are approved: a solid lifter
(zero ring) cam with solid lifters, a hydraulic lifter (260° duration, 2-ring) cam for hydraulic lifters and a
roller follower cam (rounded lobes) for roller follower engines. Engines with other configurations must
be updated to an approved configuration at overhaul.

Jabiru Service Bulletin JSB004 also refers to this part. The original design for the oil pump port plate
could suffer from cavitation which in turn caused pressure spikes and damage to the oil cooler. During
overhaul old oil pumps must be modified as detailed below or have a new port plate fitted.
Figure 78 above shows 3 different styles of oil pump port plate.
- Plate #1: This is the original design, with the port plate outline unbroken by indentations.
- Plate #2: This is an intermediate design. At the top of the outlet port and at the bottom of both ports
there are small tapered indentations. Some versions of this plate will only have the larger
indentation at the top of the outlet port, and not the pair at the bottom. Again, this design plate must
be reworked to be equivalent to Plate #3.
- Plate #3: This is the current plate design. The small indentations have been replaced by a large
tapered cut at the top of the inlet port. Changes have also been made to the other side of the plate
(which faces the crank cases) to remove sharp edges & reduce cavitation.
Plates like Plate #1 & Plate #2 can be modified to be equivalent to Plate #3. Where the plate already
has the indentation on the top of the outlet port, care must be taken to leave at least 2mm between it
and the end of the new cut on the inlet side.

This work can be carried out by hand using a Die Grinder or similar tool. Jabiru Aircraft can provide a

Take note of the number of washers fitted under the relief valve spring – fitting more washers is a
method of adjusting the average oil pressure of the engine – more washers = higher oil pressure. For a
solid lifter engine high oil pressure is not a problem (within the set limits) however a hydraulic lifter
engine needs mid-range oil pressure to operate properly. This will be adjusted during the engine test
run. AN4 type washers are used with 1 being fitted as standard during factory assembly. Up to 3 can
be used – more than 3 will result in coil-binding of the spring and relief valve malfunctions. Valve
function can be checked by depressing the poppet and to ensure it can move off the seating washer.



Complete overhaul: mandatory replacement of pistons, piston rings, gudgeon pins and piston circlips.
Cylinders may require replacement as after honing if they do not have enough wear left to complete
another cycle. Note that a light, quick hone is generally all that is required.
Top end overhaul: mandatory replacement of pistons, piston rings and piston circlips.
5.11.1.1 Mandatory updates
Cylinder Length
Figure 82 – Measuring Cylinder Length


Top end overhaul: measure the length of the cylinders and any shims fitted – combined cylinder/shim
length must be within the limits given in Table 10 when measured from the base flange to the top of the
bore as shown above.
Shorter cylinders must be replaced with longer cylinders. Alternatively 1.00mm or 0.50mm shims may
be cut to suit the base of the cylinder and fitted between the cylinder and the crankcase. Note that only
1 shim can be fitted to any barrel – for example fitting 2 off 0.5mm shims to increase the barrel
assembly length by 1mm is not acceptable. This distance is used to set the compression ratio of the
engine and short cylinders give higher compression with reduced detonation tolerance.
WARNING
On no account may cylinders or cylinder / shim assemblies shorter than the minimum length given
in Table 10 be used.
5.11.1.2 Cleaning

Top End Overhaul / Full Overhaul: Pistons are to be replaced.
If conducting maintenance: clean the pistons in a decarbonising solution. Clean the ring lands out
carefully using a non-metallic scraper – a piece of Perspex is often useful for this task. A piece of
broken piston ring can be used with extreme care but is not recommended because of the damage to
the piston which may result – any other type of metal scraper is discouraged for the same reasons.

Take care not to scratch the base or sides of the ring lands – this will inhibit ring sealing which may lead
to blow by and other related problems. Wash the pistons with kerosene then soapy water, rinse and dry.
Clean the cylinders thoroughly with kerosene, dry and apply engine oil or other corrosion protection to
the bores immediately.
After measuring, if a cylinder is deemed fit for re-use it should be lightly honed. Cylinders outside the
limits given in Table 10 at the mid-bore are unfit for re-use.

Note that whenever measuring cylinders or pistons measurements must be made both in the line of the
gudgeon and at 90 degrees – as shown in Figure 83 (right). This is because wear of these parts is
usually higher in one orientation than the other.

Top End Overhaul / Full Overhaul: New pistons are to be fitted.
Measure the cylinder diameters at approximately half stroke; for a top end overhaul they must not
exceed the limits noted in Table 10 to be to be returned to service. A cylinder which measures smaller
than this measurement will give 1 to 2 cycles further use if operated and maintained correctly. After
measuring, check carefully for signs of ovality: measure at 3 equally spaced intervals around the bore.
Measure the piston diameter and calculate the clearance between the cylinder wall and the piston: it
must be within the limits given in Table 12 in order for the piston and cylinder combination to be
returned to service.
If the clearance is greater outside the limits given in Table 12, new cylinders must be fitted.
During Other Maintenance: Check the side clearance of the top 2 rings (the gap between the side of
the ring and the ring land on the piston). If the side clearance is outside the limits given in Table 12 new
pistons must be ordered.
Note that recent pistons incorporate an increased ring sliding clearance of 0.05mm to 0.10mm. Wire
circlips on the gudgeon pin were also replaced with standard 25mm ID circlips at this time. 23mm
internal circlips are also used on some engines.
Full Overhaul:
Measure the cylinder diameters at approximately half stroke; for a full overhaul they must not exceed

Top End Overhaul: Visually inspect each valve for any signs damage: this may include burnt seats,
scoring of the stem or necking of the stem. This is a useful check as it will indicate very poor
maintenance. Valves are replaced at both top end and full overhauls.
Check that the heads of the valves protrude into the combustion chamber by the amount indicated in
the drawing below – if the heads of the valves are recessed into the roof of the combustion chamber
then new cylinder heads must be fitted. It is recommended that overhaulers do not attempt to replace
the valve seats in the heads as this job requires special tools and extreme temperature differences.
If refacing is required the inlet and exhaust faces should both be ground to 45°. Both valve and seat
face have a parallel contact of 45° - there is no undercutting.

Figure 87 – Valve Damage

Figure 87 shows various types of valve damage. From left to right they are:
1. Valve stem necking caused by the exhaust valve operating for some time with poor sealing. The
exhaust gas leaking past the seat overheated the valve stem with the result as shown.
2. A valve showing burnt residue on the valve seal face and rust on the valve stem from incorrect long
term storage.
3. A non-sealing valve.
4. A badly burnt valve – this has run for many hours, allowing the exhaust gas to burn away the
sealing face.
5. A failed valve. This can occur due to the valve sticking and being struck by the piston (intake valve)
or by the valve being overheated and cracking (exhaust valve).
WARNING
Damage caused by valve sealing is a progressive process. If caught early the fix will be simple and
cheap – if allowed to develop the repairs can be major and expensive.
 As a part of the daily inspection the engine must be turned over (or “pulled through”) by hand while it is
cold. This allows the operator to feel the compression of each cylinder in turn and assess if any
cylinder is leaking. Tests like this will normally catch a poorly sealing valve before damage becomes
critical.

Check the valve for movement
Figure 88 – Valve Guides






Top End Overhaul: start by holding each valve partly open and feeling for wear in the guide as shown
at right – there should only be a small amount of up and down (see direction arrow in Figure 88)
movement in the head of the valve.
Check each valve in this manner.
Use a micrometer to measure the valve stems and the valve guide bores and calculate the clearance: it
must be within the limits set in Table 12. If the clearance is greater than this then new valve guides
must be purchased and fitted.
Typically a valve guide bore that measures 7.08mm or greater will need replacing.
Note that the values given above are maximums – there is no point returning a cylinder head to service
if it has valve guides already worn close to the maximum allowable – before the engine has completed
its next cycle the guides will be unserviceable. Refer also to Section 12 for details.
It is unusual for guides to need to be replaced after 1 cycle however it can happen.

An alternate method for measuring valve guides is to use a Go- No Go gauge as shown in Figure 89.
The gauges must be machined very accurately to the required size. Gauges sizes of 7.04, 7.05, 7.06,
7.07mm etc are recommended. Figure 15 also shows these tools.
We strongly recommend having a specialist fit the new valve guides.
Heat the cylinder head evenly (using an oven or other uniform heat source) until the old guides can be
driven out easily.
If the head is not heated sufficiently it is possible that some metal may be picked up when the old
guides are driven out, so aim to achieve a temperature of approximately 150°C for this operation.
Once the old guides have been removed allow the head to cool naturally before sizing the holes to fit
the new guides.
Ream the valve guide holes out carefully if required until a 0.03 - 0.05mm interference fit is obtained
and then heat the head again while cooling the guides in a plastic bag in the freezer for at least an hour.
Then, working quickly, drive each guide home using a suitable tool with the head supported on an
inclined base, all as shown in Figure 88.
Make sure that the oil hole in each guide is facing up when fitted.
Reaming the guide bore to the new build value set in Table 10.
If new valve guides are fitted then the valve seats will need to be recut.

5.11.5 Valve seats


Top end overhaul: apply bearing blue to the valve and rotate the valve against the valve seat using
hand pressure only. Remove the valve and inspect for sealing between the valve and the seat – if there
is not a uniform seal within the limits shown in Figure 90 then the seats will need to be cut and the
valves may also need to be refaced.
Valve seats are cut at 45 degrees for the actual seat and then under and over cut at 30 and 60 degrees
as required to obtain a seat width as shown in Figure 90. In general, try to cut only the minimum amount
from each seat in order to extend the life of cylinder heads.

valve seats must be cut as lightly as possible.

After cutting the seal of the valves must be checked using a vacuum tester. This can be done without
fitting the valve springs as the vacuum which is applied in this test holds the valve against the seat.
Figure 92 shows a vacuum test rig. This system connects to the workshop’s compressed air supply
and uses a venturi effect within the silver box (right) to generate a partial vacuum. A fitting must be
made to connect the vacuum tube to the cylinder head – we use a layer of insertion rubber to seal
between the metal fitting and the cylinder head. Once operating the vacuum is assessed via a gauge.
If the valve achieves 25inhg or less then the valve must be cut against the seat to improve the seal.
Again, remember that the seats and valves must be cut as little as possible.
Alternatively the seal can be checked using bearing blue, assessment of the lapping marks or by using
liquids to look for leaks. Vacuum is the preferred method as it is fast, clean and accurate. The unit
pictured below used compressed air to generate a vacuum and is manufactured by SMC, P/No. ZH13B.
Figure 92 – Vacuum Test Rig


If the valve seats are badly worn or recessed into the cylinder head then a new cylinder head must be
fitted or new seats must be fitted to the old head. However, replacing the valve seats is a specialist
task which we recommend that overhaulers do not attempt as it requires special tools and extreme
temperature differences.
Note that the hydraulic valve lifters have an internal piston with approximately 4.0mm of total travel ±2.0mm from the original set position. This allows these engines to automatically adjust for up to this
amount of variation in the valve train. Variations larger than this can lead to incorrect valve actuation
and engine damage. Valve recession, cylinder head recession and similar factors all affect this
measurement and must be monitored carefully during overhaul. Shorter length pushrods are available
for hydraulic lifter engines to address this, however they are normally not required if the engine is
overhauled using the guidelines given within this manual. Note that fitting shims to the engine will have
the same effect on the lifter as using a shorter pushrod – i.e. the piston in the lifter will run higher in the
bore. Accordingly the effect of using shorter pushrods can also be gained by fitting longer cylinders or
cylinder shims. Normal valve tip to rocker clearance with lifter fully bled is around 1.8 / 1.9mm. With
later shortened pushrods of 215mm, add 1.0mm to above dimensions.

Figure 93 – Valves Assembly, Cylinder Head / Cylinder Lapping
5.11.6.1 Inspection and repair



If second-hand cylinder heads are being used they must be lapped to seal onto the cylinder spigot. The
process is similar to grinding a galve – valve grinding paste is applied to the cylinder spigot and the
head rotated against it. An old, unservicable cylinder, held in a vice, should be used for this task. This
step is not necessary with new heads. Figure 93 refers.
A visual check will show when the surfaces are mated / lapped properly. As per the valves, care should
be taken to remove the minimum amount of material.
After lapping the valves or head must be cleaned thoroughly to make sure all the grinding paste has
been removed.

Complete Overhaul: mandatory replacement of valve springs
5.11.7.1 Mandatory updates



The valve springs used for hydraulic lifter engines are different to those used in solid lifter engines.
Note that the spring designed for the hydraulic lifter engine can also be used on solid lifter engines.
Pushrods are different lengths for hydraulic and solid lifter engines.
Acceptable pushrod lengths are given in Table 10.
5.11.7.2 Inspection and repair



Top End Overhaul: Measure the valve spring lengths as shown in Figure 94 – each spring must
measure within the limits set in Table 10 to be returned to service. If any springs are shorter than this
then order a complete new set of valve springs – if a few are short then tension will be down for all
springs.
Check both ends of the springs for sharp edges or burrs which could damage the valve spring washers.
Sharp edges and burrs may be polished off.
Inspect valve spring washers (top and bottom) for wear. Worn parts must be replaced. Measure top
spring washer thickness – minimum thickness 1.3mm.

Check the pushrods for straightness: use vee blocks & dial gauge or check by rolling the rods along a
piece of thick flat glass. Check the pushrod ends for signs of wear or damage. The photo above-middle
shows a badly worn pushrod end on the left compared to a good pushrod end on the right. Replace any
bent or damaged pushrods. Pushrod length limits are given in Table 10. For hydraulic lifter engines the
215mm type is recommended for standard use as it allows greater tolerance to wear in the valve train.
Later engines use hollow pushrods to lubricate the rocker gear (Figure 94, right). Again, the 215mm
long part is recommended.
Engines equipped with roller followers use a different length hollow pushrod – as detailed in Table 10.
Check the pushrod cover tubes for straightness and smoothness: during final assembly these slide
through the O rings in the cylinder heads and any roughness may rip the O rings, so this would be a
very good time to polish the outside of each pushrod tube and replace any bent or damaged tubes.
Pushrod tubes must be checked for wear at the O ring seal (Figure 96). Wear or damage here will
cause oil leaks and must be polished out or the tube replaced.





Measure the rocker shafts and the rocker bushes and calculate the clearance – ensure it is within the
limits given in Table 10. Bushes are replaced during a full overhaul. If the clearance is greater that this
limit then new rocker bushes must be ordered.
Use a hand press to push the old bushes out with the new bushes, making sure that the split joint in
each bush is oriented towards the top of the rocker as shown in Figure 97 (left). Typically the inner size
of fresh bushes is around 12.06mm.
Note that for engines using the hollow pushrod oil feed there must be an oil hole in the rocker bush as
shown in Figure 97 (right). If this hole is not present rapid wear of the bush will occur.
Push the new bushes completely into each rocker – the width of the bush determines the amount of end
float for the rocker.
Rocker shafts must be inspected for serviceability. Check for scoring etc – slight imperfections can be
polished out – larger damage requires the replacement of the shaft. Shafts measure 11.98mm when
new. If using a shaft with slight wear it can be inserted into the head from the other direction which
places the worn section on top of the shaft where it will not wear anymore or affect rocker operation.
In all engines the rocker end which presses against the valve stem must be checked for wear. In some
cases this face may require polishing to remove defects.
For engines using the hollow pushrod lubrication system the valve rockers are equipped with an oilway
running from the pushrod socket to the tip of the rocker (see Figure 98). This oilway also feeds into a
groove in the bush installation bore. At overhaul or when new parts are fitted these oilways must be
inspected visually and using a fine probe (such as a 1.0mm drill bit) to ensure they are open and free of
obstructions. After probing blow the oilways out with compressed air to shift any debris.
In solid valve lifter engines the rocker adjusters & lock nuts must also be examined & assessed for wear

Figure 100 – 3300 Engine Sumps



Very old type 2200 & 3300 engines used sumps where the induction manifold was cast as a part of the
sump, with the intake tubes exiting the manifold at 90°. These sumps must be replaced with a newer
type at overhaul.
2200 engines: check the sump type – the older, finned sump is smaller, while the new, larger sump has
no fins. Finned sumps on 2200 hydraulic lifter engines must be replaced with the current model, larger
sump. This will reduce crankcase pressure and excessive blow-by of engine oil into the overflow bottle.
Either sump may be used on a solid lifter engine. Note that although the sump volume was increased
the oil capacity stayed the same. Different oil cooler mounting brackets are required for each sump.
3300 engines: two types of sumps, shown in Figure 100, are acceptable for use. Note the intake tubes
leaving the manifold at an angle.

There are no mandatory updates to the induction manifold assembly.
5.12.2.2 Optional Updates



2200 engines: Early 2200 engines had the induction manifold cast as part of the sump & were equipped
with a 32mm carburettor. It is recommended to fit a new sump & 40mm carburettor at overhaul.
3300 engines:
- Most 3300 engines are equipped with a bolt-on induction manifold assembly similar in appearance
to the 2200 engine part shown in Figure 185 (note the shape of the diffuser used in this part –
circled in the figure).
- Later engines use a “Series III” bolt-on induction manifold assembly. This system incorporates two
round diffusers into the manifold body in place of the “airfoil” shaped part shown in Figure 185. It
also uses different angles and shapes for the induction pipes themselves.
- Current engines use an induction cast into the sump as shown in Figure 100 (right).
All of these configurations are acceptable for the 3300 engine: upgrades in this area at overhaul are
optional.
5.12.2.3 Cleaning

Disassemble and wash. Note that to remove the Loctite sealing compound it may be necessary to use

5.13 Subassembly E – Flywheel, Ignition Coils, Starter Motor And Alternator
5.13.1 Ignition Coils & Alternator
5.13.1.1 Mandatory Updates




Flywheel – must be dowelled to the crankshaft with 6mm dowels and 5/16” or 3/8” (not ¼”) cap screws
– refer to Subassembly A (Section 5.9) for details of this modification. Note that early “Starfish” type
flywheel used 20mm long dowels while the previous assembly and the current version “Starfish” use
24mm.
Ignition coils: Shiny black coils marked “LEADING X” must be replaced.
Alternator: 3-phase alternators must be replaced.
Tachometer: sensors must be “hall effect” type or read from two dedicated tags fitted to the flywheel.
Senders which read directly from the starter ring gear teeth must be replaced.
5.13.1.2 Cleaning


Clean the flywheel with kerosene and dry.
Wipe all electrical components with a soft cloth; use a brush if necessary to dislodge dust from each
unit. Do not use chemical cleaners on any electrical components.
5.13.1.3 Inspection And Repair








Inspect the starter drive gear and the flywheel ring gear for chipped teeth: if any teeth are chipped or
missing then a new gear must be ordered. The ring gear may have either 99 or 101 teeth – you must
specify the exact tooth count when reordering either gear. Note also that the engine backing plate is
specific for each ring gear – i.e. a 99-tooth-compatible backing plate must be used with a 99 tooth ring
gear and vice versa for a 101 tooth part.
Magneto and alternator magnets must be tested using a prop bolt attached to a spring balance. Details
of the testing method and the required limits are given in Section 9.6.
Magnets that are weaker than this must be replaced. When replacing magnets the North (N) pole must
be oriented outwards on the flywheel. It is very rare for magnets to lose their strength but it can happen
if the magnets are overheated or subject to an impact.
Test the ignition coil primary resistance and secondary resistance as detailed in Section 9.6.
Test the resistance between the alternator poles and the resistance to ground as detailed in Section
9.6.
Replace any units that fail to meet these values.
Visually inspect the alternator for signs of burning, rubbing, chafing or other damage. Replace if
damage is found. Disassembly is only required if damage is found.
In particular inspect the connectors on the output wires from the alternator. If there are indications of
excess heat these connectors must be removed and new, high-quality insulated female connectors
fitted. Ensure the new connectors are a tight fit when test-assembled with a male connector.

5.13.2 Flywheel Dowel Fits


Inspect the fit of the dowels between the crankshaft and flywheel:
- Normally the dowels will remain in the crankshaft when the flywheel and gear are removed. If any
dowels come out of the crank assess the fit by inserting a new dowel: the correct fit of dowel into
crank is an interference fit: the parts require a firm tap from a copper hammer to assemble.
- Assess the fit of the dowels into the crank timing gear: a mild interference fit where the parts can be
assembled by light hammer taps is the minimum acceptable fit.
- Where equipped, assess the fit of the dowels into the flywheel spacer / vacuum pump drive: a slip fit
where the parts can be assembled by hand but no movement can be felt between the parts is the
minimum acceptable fit.
- Assess the fit of the dowels into the flywheel (or starfish, where equipped). An interference fit where
the parts must be assembled by firm hammer taps is the minimum acceptable fit.
Unacceptably loose fits require the replacement of parts.

check the brushes for serviceability, replace if they are less than 10 mm long.
Check bendix gear for chipped or missing teeth, and that the clutch slides freely on the shaft, replace if
necessary.
Check the ball bearings on the motor rotor for serviceability, replace if necessary (Figure 104, right),
using a suitable puller to remove the old part.

on completion of fitting.
Check gears and gear teeth for any marks or scoring.
Check the shafts for corrosion and seal marking and polish as required. Measure the distributor shaft to
bearing clearance: it must be within the limits of Table 12 to be returned to service.
If deep score marks (from the seal) are present (as shown in Figure 106 – right) the shaft must be
replaced.
Check the interior of the distributor cap, looking for cracks, corrosion and making sure that the carbon
brush in the centre of the cap is fitted and in good condition.
Check the high-tension leads and replace any which have chafing or other damage. Damage needing
replacement is rare, however chafing must be guarded against carefully.
Check the fit of the high-tension lead caps onto the distributor and spark plugs. Visually check the
metal contacts inside the caps. If the fit is loose or if the contact is visibly damaged as shown in Figure
107 then a screwdriver or similar must be used to re-shape the contact (it should be round) and to resize it for a better fit – for a spark plug the diameter of the contact needs to be reduced to tighten while
for a distributor cap it needs to be expanded. Each cap should fit with a clear “click” as it connects to the
distributor cap or spark plug.

Order any replacement parts required to achieve current carburettor tuning standards.
Refer also to Jabiru Service Bulletin JSB018. In some applications non-standard jets will be required
and are acceptable if their use is based on proper testing.
To improve cold starting the choke jet may be enlarged. Drilling to 1.2mm is recommended for
Australian applications. The choke jet is located in the bowl as shown in Figure 108 (left).
To improve the engine’s idle the idle jet port must be drilled out to 1.6mm. This is done at the factory
during assembly but is worth checking at overhaul. Figure 108 (right) shows the drilling being done by
hand. Note the air nozzle blowing into the idle jet to force the aluminium shavings from the drill out of
the carburettor.
New fuel hose must be fitted.
The float bowl needle seat must be checked. 3300 engines use a 2.4mm diameter, specially shaped
orifice in this part while the 2200 engine uses 2.0mm – though the 2.4mm seat is also acceptable for
2200 applications. Figure 30 shows the tools needed to change the seat which is located in the
carburettor body above the float needle. As noted at Figure 30, if the seat is to be changed a tap is
used to remove the old part and a special nylon drift used to install the new. More details of this
process are included in Section Figure 112.

Remove the upper cap of the carburettor and inspect the rubber diaphragm for any cracking, perishing
or other damage. Hold the diaphragm up to a strong light and carefully stretching each section in turn.
If any leaks are found then a new diaphragm must be ordered. Lift the slide and diaphragm assembly
out of the carburettor body, remove the needle (using a flat-bladed screwdriver, Figure 111 left) and
inspect the condition of the parts, checking the needle for wear and to determine if it is the current
design.
Remove the float bowl, floats, needle valve and jets. Hold each jet up to the light to check that it is
clean. Particularly check for varnish which can form inside the jet, reducing its internal size. This
varnish can normally be removed easily using an aerosol carburettor cleaner. Do not use drills or wire
to clean jets as this can alter their internal size and affect the engine tuning.

The float bowl needle seat must be checked. 3300 engines use a 2.4mm diameter, specially shaped
orifice in this part while the 2200 engine uses 2.0mm (though the 2200 can also use a 2.4mm seat if
required). Figure 30 shows the tools needed to change the seat which is located in the carburettor
body above the float needle. As noted at Figure 30, if the seat is to be changed a tap is used to remove

During re-assembly ensure that the atomiser, needle jet, jet carrier, washer and main jet are installed in
the correct orientation and correct order as shown in Figure 113 (left). Also ensure that the tag on the
diaphragm is aligned and fitted correctly to the socket in the carburettor body as shown in Figure 113
(right)
Check the idle mixture screw. Screw fully in then screw it out 1 turn for 2200 and 3300 engines. The
idle screw is shown in Figure 111.
The float level must be set at 11-13mm down from the lip of the bowl. Adjust the brass tang of the float
as required. An alternate setting method is to turn the electric fuel pump on and lift the floats, noting at
what float height the flow cuts off.
Carefully check the condition of the rubber coupling between the carburettor and the engine.
Particularly on installations where a “pod” filter is used this coupling can crack – and the cracks can be
hard to spot.
Set the throttle butterfly idle stop so that the butterfly is just cracked. This setting will then need to be
confirmed during the engine test run.

General
Those parts which must be replaced during a top end overhaul are detailed in Section 5.3
Those parts of an engine which have been disassembled for a Top-End overhaul are to be assembled
in accordance with the details given in the full overhaul assembly part of this manual.
Special top end overhaul build sheets are given in Section 9.
Engine Through-Bolts
As a pre-emptive test the engine through-bolts may be checked as detailed in Section 4.4.2. If fretting
is suspected it may be necessary to fully strip the engine to have the cases “decked” and line-bored.
Note that fretting can lead to failures of the engine through bolts and engine stoppage – so suspected
case fretting must be taken seriously.
Fuel Pump
For a top end overhaul the fuel pump must be inspected.
Measure the push rod which drives the pump from the camshaft. Its length must be within the limits set
in Table 10 and the ends must be in good condition – no excess wear, scoring etc.
Remove the cap of the pump and visually check that the internal parts are in good condition – no tears
or cracking in the diaphragms or rust on the spring. Re-assemble.
Pre-lube the pushrod using a small amount of grease.
New gaskets must be used when re-fitting the pump. All joints must have 1 face coated with Loctite
515 sealant.
Apply Loctite 243 to the 5/16 x 1 1/4” cap screws and tighten to the value given in Table 9.
Assemble the connecting rods, cylinders, piston and cylinder head assemblies in accordance with the
full overhaul procedures detailed in Section 7 below.


Once all parts have been inspected and all required new parts have been obtained then the assembly
process can begin.
The process described here will be to complete each subassembly stage first and then the final stage
will be described in Subassembly H – Final assembly (Section 7.8), where each of the subassemblies
will be combined to form the complete overhauled engine.
Remember that for a Jabiru Engine it is required that at certain stages of the assembly a second person
check the work and sign the build sheet to verify that it has been done correctly.
Prior to starting the assembly process, take the time to thoroughly clean your work area – wash the
workbench and engine stand down, clean all of your tools and make sure that you have everything that
will be required before starting work.
Check the engine configuration against Section 12 for mandatory updates.
Keep your work area sealed against dust and dirt ingress and cover all work in progress with a clean
cloth or seal in a plastic bag between operations.
For critical fasteners torque specifications are given in Table 9. Table 9 also gives generic torque
values for other applications.

Crankshaft, propeller flange
Before beginning assembly ensure that the crank and propeller flange have been checked for run-out
(see Section 4.4.1).
Fit the 3 welch plugs to the crankshaft. All of the welch plugs should be expanded slightly before fitting.
The plugs and the areas in the crankshaft where they will be fitted must be cleaned with Loctite 7471
cure accelerator and then have a few drops of Loctite 620 Retainer applied around the inside of the
crankshaft and the outside of the plug before fitting.
Cleanliness is essential when using Loctite!

Figure 115 – Crankshaft Painting, Degree Wheel




Start with the front 7/8” plug, located at the back of the front double main bearing, driving the plug in
from the rear, then the rear 7/8” plug at the back of the crankshaft and finally the 28mm front plug
located at the very front of the crankshaft – tap each plug squarely into place using a suitable sized drift
or punch: a very long 3/8” drive extension can be used for the front 7/8” plug. The front and rear welch
plugs should be tapped ¼” in from the face of the crankshaft, so that their outside lip sits about 1mm in
from the face of the crank.
Mask the oil seal bearing surface on the front of the crankshaft and paint the front end of the crankshaft
with a suitable paint (Figure 115 Left – note masking tape visible on seal face). Paint the propeller
flange at the same time. When painting these parts always take care not to paint any mating faces or
faces where screw heads will bear.
Fit the propeller flange temporarily and mount the crankshaft vertically to the workbench/engine stand
on top of a degree wheel, with the #1 big end journal pointing at the 90 degree before top dead centre
(BTDC) mark on the degree wheel as shown at Figure 115, (right). i.e. set up so that TDC faces the
assembler’s chest and #1 big end points to the left.
Note that the propeller flange will be finally fitted after the front crankshaft seal housing has been fitted
when the engine is removed from the workbench/engine stand.


Apply bearing blue to the back of the big end shells and fit them to the rods, hold the connecting rod in
the padded jaws of a vice and tighten the cap screws to 18 ft lb in 2 stages.
Loosen one big end cap screw then measure the bearing crush as the gap between the other side of
the rod and the bearing cap with a feeler gauge. Bearing crush should be in the range given in Table
12. If the bearing crush exceeds these limits it can be corrected by carefully sanding the ends of the
bearing shells on a sheet of 600 grit sandpaper laid on a flat surface and then rechecking. Remember
that altering bearing crush will also alter the big end size slightly, so it must be re-measured after
adjusting the crush. Also note that the critical parameter to be considered is the bearing-crank
clearance. In most cases it is best to check the clearances first and then confirm acceptable crush.
Measure the bearing crush
Measure the big end size
Figure 117 – Measuring Connecting Rods

Retighten the cap screws to 18 ft lb then measure and record the big end size of each connecting rod
and each big end journal. Calculate the big end bearing clearance. If necessary, move the connecting
rods from one journal to another until you get a uniform clearance in the range given in Table 12.
Record the clearances on the build sheet. A typical crankshaft journal will measure around 45.00mm,
requiring a typical big end bearing inner diameter of 45.04 – 45.06mm (see Table 10 for details). Again

the clearance between bearing and journal is the critical thing and must be in the range given in Table
12. If the clearance is too large then in some cases the bearing can be carefully sanded by rubbing the
ends of the bearing shells on a sheet of 600 grit sandpaper laid on a flat surface – though bearing crush
must be maintained. If the clearance is too small a different shell or rod may be tried which gives a
better fit.
WARNING




It is imperative that these tolerances are achieved.
Mark each connecting rod with the journal/cylinder
number for later refitting. Remember that oil pressure is
directly controlled by the sum of the bearing clearances,
so take the extra time to obtain uniform clearances
across all connecting rod/big end journal combinations.
Remove the bearing shells and check the blue on the
back for contact – there must be at least 90% surface
contact between the back of the bearing shell and the
connecting rod.
Check the clearance of the gudgeon pins in the small
end of each connecting rod. It may be necessary to
polish the small end hole with a polishing burr in a
Dremel tool or similar to get a smooth hand fit for each
gudgeon pin. Clean the small end of the connecting rod
and the gudgeon pin thoroughly after any polishing
operations.
Polish the little end to fit
Care must be taken that the fit does not become too
loose.
Figure 118 – Polishing Little End


Clean the bearing shells and connecting rods carefully before final fitting. Clean the cap screws and the
threads in the bearing caps using a 5/16” tap, then Loctite 7471 cure accelerator and allow to dry.
Weight of reciprocating parts must be as detailed in Section 5.11.1.4. Extra care must be taken if a
partial set of pistons are to be fitted – i.e. 1 new piston to an engine. In this case the weight of the new

dowel side of the connecting rod facing towards the front of the engine. Engine oil should also be
applied to the connection.
Press the rod and the bearing cap together by hand or gently with a pair of multigrips. This must be
done to seal the connection between cap and rod – if the cap is not fitted against the rod when Loctite is
applied to the threads then a small amount of the retaining compound can find its way between the
mating surfaces, holding them slightly apart and altering the fit of the rod to the crank. This can lead to
excess clearance between the rod and crank – which is not acceptable.
Apply a smear of Loctite 620 Retainer to the first 3 threads of each cap screw and the first 3 threads in
the bearing cap then fit each pair of cap screws and tighten initially to 10 ft lbs then to the final value
given in Table 9. Perform a final check for ease of rotation: the connecting rod should move smoothly
around the big end journal.
If it does not rotate freely then the rod should be removed and inspected. Scuffing of the bearing
surfaces near the join between cap and rod will require that the connecting rod can be fully
disassembled and the big end polished in the areas adjacent to the join between rod and cap. If there
is no particular scuffing pattern then the crankshaft journal should be polished before refitting the rod
with new cap screws and retesting. In cases like this also check that the crank journal remains round.
Wipe away any excess Loctite from the end of the cap screws when fitting is complete. Note that any
excess Loctite left on these parts can harden, then break free and be carried to the oil pressure relief
valve, causing oil pressure problems later.
WARNING
Loctite and other compounds can cure quickly at times. Overhaulers must work steadily to ensure
all treated connections are tightened fully before the compound cures.
 Recheck the torque for each cap screw before fitting the next connecting rod.
 If the crankshaft and connecting rods assembly will be left exposed for more than an hour or so the
entire assembly should be oiled lightly and covered with a plastic bag or wrapped with a clean cloth to
prevent corrosion or dirt from taking hold.

Lubricate and fit the O rings to the bottom main bearing stud holes (arrowed in Figure 120 - left) and
then fit the front and rear crankcase studs using Loctite 620 Retainer: clean and prime the threads first
using Loctite 7471 cure accelerator. Use a collet type stud tool to screw the 2 short front crankcase
studs to a free length of 52mm and the 2 long front and the 2 rear crankcase studs to a free length of
95mm as shown in Figure 120. Note: Later longer studs are positioned 54mm and 97mm free length
above the crankcase join.
Fit the hollow dowels to one crankcase half in the positions arrowed above. It is vital that poorly fitted
dowels are not used at the crankcase join – if the dowels can be pushed in by hand then they are too
loose. The correct fit it a light “tap” fit using a soft hammer. Oversize dowels are available to ensure a
snug fit. These are identified by “dots” machined into them as shown in Figure 121 – the standard size
has no dots then the size increases progressively up to the 3-dot dowel which is the largest size
available. Experience in Australia has shown that 1-dot dowels are suitable for most overhauled
engines with 2-dot and 3-dot parts being used very occasionally.
The overhauler may opt to fit somewhat loose-fitting dowels for temporary assembly of the engine to
measure bearing sizes. This simplifies sebsequent disassembly. Where such parts are used they must
be clearly marked so that they are not fitted to an engine during final assembly by mistake.
WARNING
Ensure correct size dowels are used for final assembly.

Pistons
Several different variations of piston have been used in Jabiru engines. In some instances it may be
required to partially replace an engine’s pistons (i.e. replacing 2 pistons in a 4-cylinder engine) during
maintenance. In this case the overhauler must accurately weigh reciprocating part assemblies per
Section 5.11.1.4.
For in-service maintenance purposes it is acceptable practice to fit piston assemblies in pairs – i.e.
pistons #1 and #2 may weigh 529g and 530g respectively while pistons #3 and #4 weigh 533g and
532g. However where possible it is recommended that all reciprocating assemblies be weight matched.
Where all pistons in an engine are replaced the limits detailed in Section 5.11.1.4 apply.
Figure 128 – Thrust Direction Markings For Pistons

Looking at the underside of the piston there is a cast-in lump on one gudgeon pin housing (see Figure
128). This lump must be fitted to the engine on the side of the connecting rod closest to the propeller
flange. Another marking used for the same job is a small arrow or indent cast into the crown. The
arrow must point towards the propeller flange and/or the indent must be on the propeller flange side of
the connecting rod. These markings show the correct orientation of the piston to the thrust loads from
combustion relative to the propeller.

- Many engines use a wire circlip in place of the part shown in Figure 129. Installation of that type of
clip is shown in Figure 130.
- The circlip has a lot of tension and as a result installation can be tricky.
- Overhaulers must roll the clip into the groove – they must never be levered in as this can damage
the piston or the clip.
- Take care not to scratch or burr the piston or to bend the clip itself.
- As the clip slips into the groove, listen for a crisp “snap” sound, indicating that it has dropped fully
into place. Always give the installed clip a close inspection after installation. Use a small
screwdriver or pick to check that it is tightly in place – in the case of the piston, apply an “opening”
load to the ends of the clip, expanding it into the groove. The clip should not move and should not
spin in the piston. If in doubt, fit a replacement.
Fit conventional circlip:
- Both 25mm and 23mm internal circlips have been used in Jabiru engines, as shown in Figure 129.
- Visually inspect the clips supplied and identify the “flat” and “round” sides. Figure 131 shows the
two different sides of a typical clip – note the sharp corners on the top of the left clip while the clip on
the right has a rounded top face and rounded corners. This comes from the clip manufacturing
process and will be apparent in all clips of this type – one side will be “sharp” and the other “round”.
- The clips must be installed so that the “rounded” side faces the item being retained (the gudgeon
pin in this case). See Figure 132 for an illustration of the correct and incorrect orientation. A clip
that is installed the wrong way won’t be able to carry as much load and will fail more easily.
- When fitting the clip, take care to compress it by the bare minimum amount required. DO NOT
compress the clip until the eyes touch. Over-compressing may permanently damage the clip:
Figure 133 shows a clip which was over-compressed lying on top of a brand new clip. Note how the
clip on top has been bent to a smaller size compared to the one underneath. This damage to the
clip reduces the force it can apply to its housing and makes it easier to dislodge. Specially modified
circlip pliers such as those shown in Figure 21 may be used to prevent damaging clips.
- As the clip is fitted, listen for the crisp “snapping” sound that indicates it has dropped fully into place.
- Orient the clip as shown in Figure 132: the opening in the clip faces along the axis of the barrel.
- Ensure that both ends of the clip are positioned in full-depth sections of the groove
- Always give the installed clip a close inspection after installation. Use the circlip pliers or a small
screwdriver or pick to check that it is tightly in place – as shown in Figure 132, apply an “opening”
load to the eyes to expand the clip. The clip should not move and should not spin in the piston. If
the clip moves, discard it and fit a replacement.

WARNING
Clips that are loose will rotate in service and wear the piston circlip groove away resulting in a
loose fit and, eventually, the gudgeon pin being liberated & engine failure.
Circlips must be fitted and inspected correctly or engine failure will result.
 Fit the circlip on the propeller flange side of the pistons now – the second circlip will be fitted on
assembly to the connecting rod.
 Oil the pistons and cylinders using engine oil.
 One at a time, fit the compression rings (the first and second ring of each piston) into their cylinder.
Use a piston to press the rings down into the bore – this will position the rings properly perpendicular to
the bore, making sure they are not at an angle. Using a feeler gauge, measure the ring gap of each
ring and record the value in the build sheet. Ensure the gaps are within the limits given in Table 12.
0.50 – 0.60mm is typical in a 97.60mm bore though the gap will vary depending on the exact size of the
barrel. Figure 134 shows this process. The end gap can be adjusted if required, however this is a
standard engine-building process and will not be described here. Care must be taken to ensure that
pistons, rings and cylinders are maintained in sets so that the engine is eventually assembled using
parts which have been measured together – not with the rings which were checked in cylinder #2 being
fitted to cylinder #4.

Some compression rings are marked with a dot or an “R”. Compression rings with either of these
markings must be fitted with the marking pointing towards the piston crown.
Check the fit of the compression rings to the piston. Ensure ring sliding clearance is within the limits
given in Table 12.
Note that the oil rings must be fitted so that the scraper ring ends (i.e. the join in the upper scraper ring
is not in line with the join in the lower scraper ring) are separated and the expander has not overlapped
itself.

If new cylinder heads are being used in the build then lapping the cylinder to the head is not required.
Otherwise the procedure noted in Section 7.3.4 must be followed.
Fit the rings to the piston. Orient the ring gaps at 120° intervals around the piston so that it is unlikely
that the gaps will ever line up. The rings must also be oiled for assembly.
Fit the piston to the cylinder (using a commercial ring compressor or a special tool per Figure 18) from
the underside (skirt side) of the cylinder. Do not push the piston far up into the cylinder as this makes
assembly difficult – it should be left as shown, down near the cylinder skirt.
Ensure the piston is oriented correctly into the cylinder – the side of the cylinder with the cut-out areas
in the fins faces the engine sump. Piston orientation is noted in Section 7.3.1. A good tip here is to
apply a temporary mark to the underside of the cylinder showing the front side, making later assembly
easier.
Start the gudgeon pin into the piston as shown in Figure 136 (left).
Fit the cylinder base O rings to the cylinder.

modified nuts (i.e. no chamfer) on either barrel can result in the nut hitting on the radius at the cylinder

Alternatively, the diameter of the nut base can be reduced in a lathe – this has been carried out to the
“modified” nuts shown in Figure 139.

Cylinder heads
Each cylinder head should be clearly marked with a number using permanent marker or similar – these
numbers can be cleaned off at the end of the build using tool cleaner spray. In the meantime the
numbers will allow the overhauler to easily identify cylinder head / piston / rod / cylinder sets. The
numbering system of the cylinders for the engines is given in Figure 3.
Note that the 2200 engine uses two different cylinder heads – one for cylinders 1 & 4 and another for 2
and 3 - Figure 140 refers. The Jabiru 3300 engine uses the same cylinder head for all cylinders –
though they are fitted with different induction or exhaust pipes depending on where they are fitted to the
engine.
Figure 140 – Cylinder Head Comparison (2200 head on left, 3300 on right).

Where second-hand heads are used they will have had their valve seals tested as detailed in Section
5.11.5. This process also applies when fitting new cylinder heads: the seal of each valve must be
tested as detailed in Section 5.11.5. If the seal is not good enough then the valve and seat will need to
be lightly cut. After cutting ensure that the cylinder head and valves are thoroughly washed to remove
all residue of the valve cutting paste.
Where new valves are used, inspect both ends for sharp edges and burrs which may damage the valve
spring washers. Polish off any edges or burrs found.

Fit new O rings (2) to the rocker shaft bore of the cylinder head and 2 new O rings to the pushrod tube
bores. Use Nulon L90 to lubricate the O rings for assembly and to prevent damaging them while fitting
the rocker shaft and pushrod tubes. Do not use rubber grease as it will attack these O rings and metal
parts. Note that the large rocker cover O ring is fitted later in the assembly process.
Lubricate the valves and valve guides using oil, then fit the valve springs and collets to the cylinder
head using a spring compressor as shown in Figure 141. Ensure that the lower steel washer (shown at
the lower left of Figure 93 – left) is fitted to the base of each spring.
Note that the rocker shaft and valve rockers are fitted later in the assembly process. However now is
the time to fit new bushes to the rocker arms (if needed). A special tool and a hand press (as shown in
Figure 141) simplifies this job. Orient the new bushes so that the joint in the bush is pointing away from
the crankshaft. Additional details are shown in section 5.11.8.
Fit the induction pipe to the head, again taking care that the correct pipe is fitted to the correct head (the
pipes are stamped with their cylinder number). New gaskets must be used.
If new heads are being fitted to an engine then in most cases some small Welch plugs must be fitted to
the head. For engines using the external oil feed tube for the rocker gear small tubes must also be
fitted to the head. Both of these parts are pressed into the cylinder head (Figure 142).
For engines using the hollow pushrod oil feed system these oil ports in the side of the heads are not
used. In that case 2 Welch plugs (Figure 142, right) are fitted to the head – one on each side – to blank
off the ports.

Subassembly D – Sump
It is acceptable to fit the induction plenum chamber to the sump before fitting the sump to the engine.
However for this manual the sump will be fitted first and the plenum later.
If the crankcases have been surfaced and line-bored it is possible that the sump dowel pins may not
align correctly. After the crankcases have been joined the sump must be dry-fitted to confirm that
everything lines up as it should. In some cases some of the mounting holes through the sump may
have to be enlarged slightly using a small round file and the locating pins may not fit. This is unusual
and generally should not occur, provided that the cases have not been surfaced by more than the
maximum allowable amount. Check for alignment of all mounting screws and for the fit of the sump
against the gear case at the rear of the engine.
After dry fitting, ensure that all dowels are in place (if applicable – early engines had none).
Fit a new O ring to the oil filler housing and to the dipstick.

essential as they greatly reduce the operating temperature of the coil, improving its longevity.
 Ignition coils must be fitted with the output lead pointing in the direction of propeller rotation. Coils
installed backwards may fire with the wrong timing or not work at all.

 If a new alternator stator is being fitted it must be measured to ensure proper clearance (Figure 143,
right). Note that dome-head screws are used in the alternator magnet housing (Figure 144, right) are
used to allow clearance from the stator – if normal socket head screws are used here alternator
damage will result.
 Screw the alternator stator to the mount plate using machine screws. A small amount of Loctite 620 is
used on these screws.
7.5.3 Flywheel
 If the engine is being updated to a “Starfish” style flywheel then the alternator rotor and the ignition
magnets must be fitted – otherwise these parts are left undisturbed on the flywheel during overhaul.
 Fit the ring gear to the flywheel using 6 off 1/4 x 1/2 Grade 8 bolts to the torque value given in Table 9.
Note the two tags fitted to the ring gear which are used by the tacho to measure RPM.
 Whenever working with the rare-earth magnets used in Jabiru Engines, remember that shocks (like a
sharp tap with a hammer) and heat (such as from a heat gun when removing the flywheel screws) can
de-magnetise the magnets.
 Each magnet retainer is fitted using 4 off 1/2" 10-32 countersunk screws. The magnets themselves are
potted in Silastic 1080 to prevent them vibrating. Note that the magnets must be set with their north
poles facing outwards. After assembly the magnet assemblies must be tested as detailed in Section
Table 13. If necessary new magnets may need to be fitted.
 The alternator rotor assembly is located on the flywheel using 4 roll pins. These are fitted to the
flywheel, then the rotor tapped into place using a soft hammer. The rotor is then screwed to the
flywheel using 4 off 5/8” x 10-24 button head cap screws. A small amount of Loctite 620 is applied to
these screws.
 Finally the “starfish” adaptor itself is screwed to the flywheel using 8 off 1/4" x 5/8" UNF cap screws &

Fresh seals must be fitted to the case and to the distributor mounts as shown in Figure 147. Note that
later engines use a larger crankshaft timing gear and a thinner oil seal to suit. Oil seal size must be
matched to fit the gear used.
These seals must be well lubricated using grease for assembly – this part of the engine tends to run
slightly dry and generous lubrication now will greatly reduce wear of these parts.
The distributor posts, shafts and mount plates can be fitted to the distributor case now. Loctite 515
sealant is used on all mating surfaces.
Glue the distributor rotors to the shafts using 5-minute Araldite mixed with a suitable filler (such as
cotton flock) as shown in Figure 148.
New bushes must be fitted to the distributor housings as shown in Figure 148. Distributor posts must
be generously lubricated with Nulon L90 or grease.
If the distributor shaft has been replaced it will be necessary to rivet the drive gear to the new shaft as
shown in Figure 149. 3/16” stainless steel (Monel) blind rivets must be used. Ensure that the heads of
the rivet do not get caught on the edge of the shaft and that the tails are not so long that they project
past the shoulder of the shaft. Also ensure that the remainder of the rivet tails are driven out of the rivet
– otherwise they can work loose in service and damage the engine.

Now that each Subassembly is ready the overhauled engine can be final assembled.
Note that the entire crankcase assembly process including the fitting of pistons and cylinders MUST be
completed in one continuous operation otherwise the Loctite 515 Sealant around the crankcase join can
dry before uniform pressure is applied to the crankcase join by the cylinder nuts, so make sure that you

Crankcase Joining
During the joining process various sealants will be used which will cure quickly – therefore it is essential
that the overhauler be thoroughly organised before starting this task and that they work efficiently and
quickly once they have begun. If too much time is taken the engine must be disassembled and recleaned, ready for another attempt at joining.
Pre-Joining Checklist:
1. Ensure all tools, parts, sealants and compounds are available for the build and ready to be fitted.
Parts in particular must have been cleaned, inspected and had any necessary remedial work carried
out before beginning the final assembly.
2. Oil all bearings lightly.
3. Oil or grease (lightly) camshaft tunnel
4. Thrust bearings are installed correctly and oiled.
5. All required measurements have been taken – cam end float, crank end float etc.
6. For solid lifter engines, ensure the valve lifters are fitted and lubricated.
7. Count all engine through bolts and place them close to hand.
8. Count all engine through bolt nuts, confirm they have been chamfered (per Section 7.3.2) and place
close to hand.
9. Confirm that all gudgeon pins are started into their pistons & are ready to go.
10. Count all piston circlips and place close to hand.
11. Check that suitable spanners are available – torque wrench, special spanners for tightening the lock
nuts on the through-bolts, “crowsfoot” adaptors etc.
12. Confirm the orientation of the cylinders and the pistons within the cylinders.
13. Confirm that the sump oil pickup and strainer, through bolt dowels and studs have been fitted to the
crankcase.
14. Confirm that the cam is assembled to its gears, ready to fit.
15. Apply a little grease to the cam and to the lifters.

Apply a light coating of Loctite 515 sealant to one crankcase joining face. Ensure that all oil galleries
and feeds are free – an excess of sealant can block these, leading to engine damage.
Fit one side of the crankcase to the crankshaft, taking care not to dislodge any of the bearing shells or
mark them with a sharp corner.
Place the camshaft in the journals of the fitted case half.
Fit the second side of the crankcase. The front and rear studs must now have nuts fitted and tightened

Apply a small amount of Loctite 518 sealant to the cylinder base and the cylinder base O ring. Wipe
excess sealant off the base face of the cylinder before fitting. Then offer the cylinder / piston assembly
up to the engine. Double-check the thrust direction of the piston now – if necessary rotate the piston in
the bore to correct the orientation (Arrows / moulded lugs on propeller flange side of the connecting
rod). Insert the gudgeon pin and circlip, then fit the cylinder up against the crankcase.
The orientation of the cylinder must also be double-checked – make sure the cut-outs in the fins are
facing the sump – these are to give clearance to the pushrod tubes. Figure 136 shows the cut-outs.
Fit the through-bolts to the engine. Care must be taken to centre the through-bolts so that the
same amount of thread shows on both sides of the engine. Refer to Table 6 for approved
configurations to be used at overhaul or maintenance. Note that the front studs of the engine use a nut
/ washer combination different to the other studs.
Tighten all through-bolts and studs to 20lb.ft without locking compound.

Starting from the middle cylinders:
- Remove both nuts from one through-bolt
- Visually inspect the cylinder base for marks where the base of the nut has pressed against the lower
radius of the barrel. If marks are present the chamfer on the base of the nut must be enlarged
(Figure 139 refers).
- Tighten all through bolts and studs to the value given in Table 9. Ensure even amounts of thread
are visible on both sides of the engine for through bolts. Apply torque wrench to nuts on both ends
of through-bolts.
- Repeat for all through bolts and studs on the engine.
Mark the completed nuts with anti-tamper paint as shown in Figure 156 (right).
A special tool is available from Snap-On which speeds up the installation of the cylinder barrels – P/No.
FU14B is a small universal joint with a built-in 7/16” nut socket. This allows tensioning of the throughbolts without a crowsfoot – eliminating the need to make an allowance for the crowsfoot arm on the
torque setting. FU16B is the equivalent tool with a ½” socket for use on 7/16” 12-point nuts.

Repeat this process on all the remaining through-bolts and studs.
Rotate the crank inside the crankcase. Assess the force required to turn crank: excess friction indicates
that bearings have tightened up and minimum clearances have not been maintained. This may indicate
an error in measurements or – in the case of a top-end overhaul – fretting damage to the cases.
Contact Jabiru Aircraft or our local representative for guidance. Assessing friction is an exercise in
judgement and overhaulers must develop a feel for this aspect. The engine being worked on may be
compared with another engine where practical.
Issue 1 of Service Bulletin JSB 031 noted that in some special cases where 12-point nuts are fitted to
older through-bolts the nut may overhang the thread of the bolt as shown in Figure 156 (right). This is
due to the extra length the 12-point nuts. While this is acceptable in some cases for engines subject to
the Service Bulletin Issue 1 re-work it is NOT ACCEPTABLE during a normal engine overhaul. New
design through-bolts must be used which are long enough to accommodate the 12-point nuts.

Correct tightening procedures must be used. See Section 3.8.3.
Fitting cylinders and through-bolts is a critical operation & must only be attempted by trained
technicians.
Excess sealant can now be wiped off the cylinder bases and the crankcase join – this is most easily
done once the sealants have dried.

Additional Information – Through-Bolt Tension
Technicians reading this must understand the difference between “bolt tension” and “nut torque”.
Torque is the setting on the torque wrench & defines how much rotational force it takes to turn the nut.
Bolt tension is the actual tensile load in the bolt – the force holding the parts together.
Tuning a guitar is a good illustration of the difference between bolt tension and nut torque – for a given
torque on the guitar string adjustor the tone of the string might be too high or too low – in that case the
musician can set the string tension directly by turning the adjuster until the string tone is right. For a
through-bolt we cannot measure the tension directly and we are forced to make assumptions of the
relationship between nut torque and bolt tension – in effect we are trying to set the guitar string tone
indirectly by assuming that a given torque on the string adjuster will give a certain string tone.
Testing has shown that assembling these parts dry apart from Loctite 620 gives good, repeatable
results for bolt tension. Altering these parameters has unpredictable effects and is not recommended.
7.8.2 Option – Fitting Oil Pump
 It is possible to fit the oil pump now rather than later. This allows the overhauler to turn the cam by
hand as the oil pump housing is being tightened to check for binding between the oil pump gears.
 Full fitting details are given in Section 7.8.17.

Fit a mount plate and dial gauge to cylinder #1 of the engine and use the dial gauge to accurately locate
top dead centre for that cylinder. This is done by using the dial gauge to estimate TDC then bending
the wire to point at 0° on the degree wheel. Then rotate the engine to the right (against rotation) until
the dial gauge records movement of 0.5mm from TDC and record the degree wheel reading. Move the
engine back to 0° then turn it to the left until the gauge reads 0.5mm – record the degree wheel reading.
Calculate the centre point between these two readings – this is the true TDC for this cylinder. The
engine can then be rotated until the wire points at this reading and the wire re-bent to point at 0°. Care
must be taken from now on not to bend the wire! Double-check this position by repeating the above
procedure – twisting to the left, then to the right.
Rotate the cam until the two timing marks on the large cam gear are pointing towards the crankshaft.
The camshaft drive gear can now be fitted to the end of the crank as shown in Figure 159 – so that the
tooth on the crankshaft gear with the timing mark is between the two teeth of the cam gear with timing
marks.
A single cap screw can now be added to the crankshaft gear to lock it in place relative to the crankshaft.
Once this is done the timing must be checked by reading directly from the camshaft.
For a hydraulic lifter engine – for measurement purposes – fit a hydraulic lifter to the lowermost port of
the engine (as shown in Figure 160 – alternatively a special tool such as that shown in Figure 29 can be
used).
Now rotate the engine to find the point of maximum lift of the cam lobe being checked. The procedure
here is the same as for finding TDC for the cylinder – with the exception that the timing pointer wire
must not be bent! Estimate the point of max lift for the cam, then turn the engine either way until the
dial gauge records 0.5mm movement. Record the timing readings and calculate the centre point.
Peak lift occurs about 70 – 72° after Bottom Dead Centre (71° typical) for the exhaust lobe and 68 – 72°
(71° typical) before Bottom Dead Centre for the intake lobe.

Sump
As an alternative to the order given below the sump may be fitted after the engine backing plate.
Lightly apply Loctite 515 to the horizontal mating face of the sump. Note that our experience is that it is
easier to apply the sealant to the sump than to the crankcase.
Fit the sump using cap screws and locating pins as shown in Figure 162. Note that on early engines
the length of the screw which is in line with the internal oil pickup is 5/8” long compared to ¾” for all
other locations. Later sumps have a raised boss for this position allowing the longer screw to be used.
Some engines have provision for a pair of cap screws to secure the rear of the sump to the engine
mount plate (see Figure 50). These screws have proven unnecessary and should be omitted during
overhaul.
Attach the oil filler mount fitting to the right crankcase using Loctite 243.
Fit the oil filler tube to the engine, lubricating the tip with Nulon L90 for assembly. Tighten the grub
screw which holds the tube in place.

they should be close – and provided the timing mark lines up with the tip of the cap it will work properly.
The gear case can now be tightened onto the engine mount plate to the torque specified in Table 9.
Note that certain 3300 engines (See Section 13 for serial number information) have different flywheel
starfish. These parts have been indexed to give 20° or 23° BTDC for spark timing instead of the original
25°. These are engraved with “20° BTDC” or “23° BTDC” as appropriate. When using this part the

Flywheel and Alternator Rotor
While the engine is still set at 25° before TDC (or as required to set the distributor timing) the flywheel
will fit onto the engine with its magnets aligned at the ignition pole positions. For the 2200 engine this
means the magnets are pointing to the left and right of the engine. For the 3300 the magnets are at the
1 o’clock, 5 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions. There is also a timing mark (a hole) drilled in the starfish (or
flywheel for non-starfish engines) which aligns to a corresponding hole in the crankshaft gear. Figure
172 refers.
Note that fitting dowels of some form or another is a mandatory update – older engines which were not
originally equipped with dowels must be upgraded at overhaul.
Remove the temporary cap screw which was used to lock the gear to the crankshaft & preserve the
cam timing.
Once the timing marks are aligned and the temporary locking screw is removed, the flywheel can be
fitted to the engine.
Align the timing marks and then tap the dowels through the flywheel into the crank using a soft hammer.
The 6mm dowel pins (3 off) are fitted with a small amount of Loctite 620. Note that 20mm or 25mm
long dowels are required, depending on the configuration of the engine. The dowel holes in the
crankshaft are drilled to depth so the dowels are tapped in until they stop. After installation measure
how much dowel protrudes from the crank: approximately 18mm is required for non-starfish engines
and 12mm for starfish types. Excess length must be corrected as it will cause assembly problems.
Starfish engines use 5/16 x 1” or 3/8” x 1” screws, others 5/16 x 1 1/4”. All types must be fitted using
Loctite 620 and have a Belleville washer fitted. Apply a match-tip sized portion of Loctite to the threads
in the crankshaft and the same sized amount to the threads of the screws. Rub the threads of the
screws against each other to distribute the Loctite reasonably evenly over the first 3 threads. The
screws can now be fitted. Torque them in 2 stages – 15lb.ft then to the value specified in Table 9 –
using a normal diagonal pattern. Figure 173 refers. Work fast – remember Loctite 620 can cure very
quickly, especially when cure accelerator spray (Loctite 7471) is used.

Ignition Posts & Alternator Stator


The alternator and ignition coil posts are held to the engine using 4 off AN4-37A bolts. Ensure that
metal-lock nuts are used as shown in Figure 174. Roll pins are also used to hold these parts in position
– tap them together on assembly using a soft hammer.
Once the posts are in place the ignition coils can be fitted. The simplest method is to use a large 0.010”
feeler gauge – lie this gauge against one of the magnet poles of the flywheel – the magnetism will keep
it in place. Then rotate the engine until this pole lies beside the coil whose gap you wish to set. Again,
the magnetism will hold the coil against the feeler gauge and the coil mounting screws can now be
tightened. Once both coils have been positioned this way check the gap between each magnet pole
and each ignition coil – on older engines the magnet poles may not be in exactly the same position on
the flywheel which may vary the gap. In this case a compromise adjustment must be found to get all
coil gaps within the limits set in Table 12.
Note that insulating washers are fitted between the ignition coils and the mounting post – this is to
minimise heat transfer into the coil.
When installing the coils note the orientation – in all cases the output lead from the coil must point in the
direction of propeller rotation.

7.8.10 Cylinder Heads


The cylinder heads must be fitted to the engine in a sequence as the rocker shafts are installed in-situ.
The recommended sequence is: fit an upper head – say 5 or 6 for a 3300 engine – first, then work
downwards, completing each head assembly in turn.
For each head the following sequence must be followed:
1. The outer bottom circumference edge of the hydraulic lifter should be lightly polished to remove any
burrs or sharp edges.
2. For hydraulic lifter engines, fill the lifters with oil (using an oil can - Figure 176) and fit the lifters to
the crankcase. The outside of the lifter must also be well lubricated with oil before fitting and note
also the light covering of grease which has been applied to the camshaft lobes – this is to minimise
wear during initial start-up. Note that solid lifter engines have their lifters fitted before crankcase
assembly – there is no way to do it once the case halves are assembled.
3. For engines equipped with roller cam followers the follower locking plates must be installed now –
see Figure 177. This plate should be a neat fit with a small amount of clearance from the lifter. It
may be necessary to lightly linish the plates before installing to remove sharp edges etc. Note the
orientation of the plate when installed: the two “legs” on the plate must point out of the case.
4. Fit new O rings to the crankcase to seal the pushrod tubes (solid lifter models) – see Figure 176.
5. For hydraulic lifter engines, fit new O rings to the pushrod tube adaptors. Again these must be well
lubricated with oil or Nulon L90. Fit the adaptors to the crankcase.
6. For roller follower models, the oil return manifolds can be fitted now. Fit new O rings and use a
small amount of Loctite 515 to seal the manifold to the engine. Figure 178 shows the manifolds
installed.
7. Fit the pushrod tubes (2) to the crankcase.
8. If the engine uses an external oil feed pipe this must be fitted between the cylinders. It should be
fitted but the clamps not tightened until all the heads are fitted. For later specification engines which
use the pushrod tubes to feed oil to the rocker gear this step is omitted. Note that if an engine has
been converted from the external oil feed to the new hollow pushrod oil feed it will be necessary to
fit blanking plugs to the old oil feed holes in the sides of the crankcase as shown in Figure 183.
Solid lifter engines must use the external oil feed tube system.
9. Fit the cylinder head to the cylinder, feeding the pushrod tubes into the head – see Figure 180.
10. Apply high-temperature lubricant to the threads of the cylinder and the cylinder head screws – these
are susceptible to rust which can lead to inaccurate bolt tension readings later in service. The
lubricant is designed to prevent rust on the threads and to ensure a consistent torque setting during
the engine’s service life. Figure 179 refers.
11. Install the cylinder head bolts and washers with a light tension setting. In particular the lower head
screw (which is accessed via the hole inside the rocker cavity) must be left loose – the special
washer under this screw can rub against the rocker tubes and so must be carefully positioned to
avoid this. Figure 179 (right) shows this screw being tightened.
12. Using the spring compressor tool shown in Figure 10 and Figure 180, open both valves to allow the
installation of the valve rockers. This step may be bypassed for a solid lifter engine if the overhauler
prefers, but even for those engines this tool makes the assembly simpler by allowing the heads to
be fitted as complete assemblies.
13. Fit the valve rockers, taking care that the pushrod is correctly seated into the sockets in the lifter and
in the rocker. The rockers and the rocker shaft must be lubricated well with Nulon L90 or oil as
shown in Figure 181 and then driven in using a suitable punch and a soft hammer. The shaft is
punched in with the rounded end leading.
14. Fit the rocker shaft locking screw and remove the valve compressor tool.
15. Tighten the cylinder head screws (6) to 15 lb.ft and then to the value specified in Table 9 using a
standard diagonal tensioning pattern.
16. Fit the tapered blanking plug to the access hole for the lower cylinder head screw (shown in Figure
180 – left). Note that this plug must not be over-tightened. If the plug is done up too tightly then
over time its tapered thread will wear the thread in the cylinder head, requiring it to be screwed in
further and further to be tight. Eventually the thread can be worn so much that the tapered plug will
not lock in. A tension of about 6lb.ft is sufficient for this plug.

For a solid lifter engine, to adjust the valve clearances use the following procedure:
1. Start with the top valve in the top head. Rotate the engine on the work stand to the point where the
valve is fully depressed then rotate it through another whole revolution. This will place the follower
exactly on the “back” of the cam where there is no lift. Note that the engine should always be turned
in the direction of its normal rotation.
2. Using a spanner and screwdriver (or special tool as shown below) adjust the clearance to 0.010”.
3. Repeat this process for each valve in the engine.

The upper induction pipes have all been fitted to the cylinder head during sub-assembly and by now it
will be obvious if any have been fitted to the wrong head.
Fit the diffuser(s) inside the plenum chamber halves. 2200 and most 3300 engines both use an “airfoil”
diffuser shaped as circled in Figure 185 (Left). Later 3300 engines use two round diffusers.
The two halves of the plenum chamber are fitted together as shown, using Loctite 515 sealant between
the halves.
Once assembled by hand the plenum chamber can be fitted to the engine.
Insert new O rings into the plenum chamber as shown. In this application the O rings must be installed
dry – sealant will be added later.
Fit the rubber joining hoses onto each induction pipe and push them up towards the head. The hose
clamps should also be fitted now, but not tightened.
One by one, fit the lower induction pipes into the plenum chamber. Before fitting, wipe the inside of the
socket of the plenum chamber with Loctite 2 gasket sealant, making sure that the O ring is coated.
Additional sealant is applied to each stub pipe. Care must be taken to get the amount of sealant right –
too little will result in leaks which can dangerously affect the fuel/air mixture while too little will form
blobs inside the induction manifold and need to be cleaned out.
While the sealant is still wet push the rubber joining hoses over the joints in the pipes. Mark or measure
the pipes so that the hose is centred over the join. Then tighten the hose clamps – orient the clamps for
easy access when installed on the aircraft.

must be fitted to the flange screws.
Newer engines use a metal-on-metal seal with a 45° seat at the exhaust port of the head – for these
engines there is no seal and no shake-proof washers needed.
Loosely fit the exhaust pipes to the engine. Each pipe will have 3 (for gasket type) or 2 (metal seat

During assembly, check each HT lead fitting for tightness in the distributor cap; expand each metal
fitting until it snaps neatly into place in the cap.
NGK D9EA spark plugs are used in Jabiru Engines. If other brands are used care must be taken to
ensure they are equivalent to the D9EA in all respects. Note that Resistor type plugs are not
recommended as they reduce the spark strength and can contribute to difficult starting – and that
Iridium plugs are generally resistor types.
The spark plug gap is set to the value given in Table 12. Generally around 0.23” works well though the
gap can be reduced to the minimum (0.018”–0.020”) during winter to give easier starting
Always use a high-temperature graphite lubricant such as anti-seize when fitting the plugs. Tighten the
plugs to the setting given in Table 9. Note that excess lubricant on the plug thread can cause plug
misfiring when heated.

This task requires a second person. It is safety critical and should only be attempted by
experienced, competent overhaulers.
Jabiru Service Bulletin JSB022 also refers to this task & must be referenced by overhaulers.
Before beginning this task ensure that all parts, hardware and compounds are close to hand and ready
to be fitted. Dry-fitting the flange before final fit-up is strongly recommended. In some cases some
paint may need to be removed from the front of the crankshaft or from the flange to allow the flange to
fit easily.
The cure time for the retaining compounds used in this task can be short and so this task must be
completed quickly and efficiently.
Before beginning the fit up, use taps to ensure that all threaded holes in the crankshaft have been
cleaned and the old retaining compound removed. This must be done carefully and by hand to make

sure the tap engages properly with the thread and does not damage it. Prop flange retaining screw
holes are 3/8” UNF while the rear flywheel retaining screw holes are 5/16” UNF or 3/8” UNF. After
removing the tap use compressed air to blow out any debris from inside the holes.
Dry fit the cap screws to the propeller flange and verify that there is sufficient thread engagement into
the crankshaft – a minimum 9mm (0.0.354”) of full thread engagement is required – which generally
equates to a total of around 11-12mm (0.433-0.472”) measured from the tip of the screw to the flange
mating face. If a Belleville (cone or spring washer) is used, the compressed thickness of the washer
must be accounted for – the numbers given here assume a std Jabiru Belleville washer is fitted (and
compressed) while measuring. While this is not normally an issue when using a Jabiru propeller flange,
manufacturing tolerances mean that this must still be checked. If using a non-Jabiru flange then this
dry fit stage is of critical importance to ensure that the flange is fitting properly (not binding on the crank,
is sitting co-axial with the crank etc). If replacement hardware is used ensure that it is “Unbrako 1960”
grade or equivalent.
Clean the threads of the screws using Loctite 7471 cure accelerator & allow to air dry. After priming,
ensure the threads stay clean – contamination with oil (even skin oils from fingers) can reduce the
strength of the bond of the retaining compound.
Clean the threads in the crankshaft using Loctite 7471 cure accelerator & air dry.
Because the retaining compound sets quickly it is recommended to pre-heat the propeller flange to
around 60 – 80°C using a heat gun or similar. At this temperature the flange expands and will fit over
the dowel pins more easily.
Fit the flange to the crankshaft; this can be done most quickly by carefully positioning the pre-heated
flange in place with the dowels lined up with the holes in the flange. Then, using a piece of timber as a
“soft” driver fitting inside the flange, drive the flange into position with a hammer.
Alternative method for flange installation:
- After initial cleaning of the threads of the crankshaft and of the cap screws fit the flange to the
crankshaft using 3 of the screws, tightening evenly to ensure flange is pulled correctly into position.
- Do Not Apply Loctite! Tighten to the torque specified in Table 9.
- Visually inspect the flange and ensure it is correctly fitted: ensure there is no gap between the
flange and the crank and that the flange is sitting straight.
- Remove screws; the flange will remain in place on the dowel pins.
- Repeat the steps given above for final cleaning and application of Loctite.
WARNING
It is vitally important that the screws are removed, male and female threads are cleaned and the
screws re-installed with Loctite: failure to apply retaining compound can result in engine failure.
 Once the flange is in place and both male and female threads are clean apply a small amount –
approximately the size of a large match head – of Loctite 620 retaining compound to the flange screws.
 Apply the same amount (approximately the size of a large match head) of Loctite 620 to the threads in
the crankshaft.

Fit the screws by hand with a T-bar wrench or similar to allow rapid installation then tension the screws
using a calibrated torque wrench immediately. After using the activator spray the retaining
compound will cure quickly so ensure this step is carried out right away!
A second person is necessary to hold the crank so that it does not rotate while tightening these screws.
Figure 193 (left) shows a screwdriver being used to hold the ring gear on the flywheel, locking the
crank. Alternatively a finger bar (Figure 28) may be used. The second person will also need to help
hold the engine steady. Trying to do this job alone is impractical and may compromise the job, resulting
in an in-flight failure.
Tension the screws in a standard diagonal tightening pattern. Torque all screws to the value given in

Lock-wire may be applied. If it is used the screws must be wired in pairs per Section 3.9. Loctite 620 is
an extremely strong retaining compound and if the above procedure is followed correctly it is more than
strong enough to be used on its own without lock wire.

Fit a new BS112V O ring to the port plate to seal the pressure delivery port (Figure 195).
Apply Loctite 515 sealant to 1 face of each joint – as shown with the rear side of the pump housing and
the rear side of the port plate is recommended. Ensure the O rings are coated with sealant.
Fit the port plate to the engine, then fit the new woodruff key and the oil pump gears to the camshaft.
Ensure that the key is sitting correctly and that the dimples on the oil pump are both visible as shown in
Figure 195. Occasionally the key may need to be lightly sanded to fit the cam or pump gears. This can
be done by placing a piece of 600 grit wet and dry emery paper on a flat surface and rubbing the key
against it. The fit needs to be snug however – do not remove too much material.
Fit the outer pump housing over the gears and insert & hand tighten the retaining cap screws. Use
Loctite 243 on the threads and ensure the Jabiru bird is oriented correctly.
While the housing is still loosely held to the engine, rotate the crankshaft through at least 2 full
revolutions. This turns the cam and allows the oil pump to find its preferred position. The housing can
now be tightened to the value given in Table 9. Failure to turn the engine can result in the oil pump
being offset from the cam axis – this applies side loads to the cam and can eventually crack it or break

Oils
During initial running a non-detergent oil must be used to encourage proper bedding-in of components.
Oils must meet the following standards:
- Aero Oil W Multigrade 15W-50, or equivalent Lubricant complying with MIL-L-22851C, or
- Lycoming Spec. 301F, or
- Teledyne–Continental Spec MHF-24B
Table 7 shows oil recommendations for initial running. We recommend Areo Shell 100, Exxon Aviation
Oil 100 or BP Aviation Oil 100.
This oil must be used for the first 25 hours of operation after a top end inspection or overhaul or
whenever new or honed cylinders are fitted.
For further information on oils to use refer to the Jabiru Instruction & Maintenance Manual appropriate
to the engine.

Before First Start
Check oil pressure. The simplest way to do this test is to remove a spark plug from each cylinder,
then use the starter motor to spin the engine until the oil pressure reading comes up. Alternatively an
external oil pressure source can be plumbed into the engine. This test ensures that the oil circuit of the
engine is working properly before starting – if a fault in the oil circuit was found with the engine running
damage to the main bearings etc is very likely.
Install to a suitable running rig. Engines can be run-in on the ground on a test rig – however it is
essential that this rig have oversize cooling ducts for the cylinder heads and for the oil cooler. Normal
aircraft ducts are not enough – running an engine on the ground using aircraft cooling ducts can quickly
overheat and ruin an engine.

Fit a suitable propeller. Carrying on from the last point, if the engine is being run on the ground then a
suitable “club” prop must be fitted. A club prop must allow the engine to reach a minimum of 3250 RPM
and a maximum of 3400 RPM. A prop which does not meet either of these limits will not load the
engine correctly and can initiate long-term operating issues.
Ground Run-In & Test Procedures
Test running is an essential part of the full overhaul or top end overhaul process. It is worth spending
extra effort during this testing to catch any small issues which may grow more serious in operation.
At the completion of assembly of the engine after overhaul, it is recommended that the engine be
mounted upon a suitable test stand for its initial or run-in operation.
Alternately the engine may be re-fitted to the aircraft and run. While the very first runs may take place
on the ground in an airframe, any further testing must be carried out in the air to ensure sufficient airflow
for engine cooling.
The run-in serves a two-fold purpose; first, to seat piston rings and burnish any new parts that have
been installed and second, to give the operator control over the first critical hours of operation, during
which time he can observe the functioning of the engine by means of the test cell instruments or, if the
engine is re-fitted to the aircraft, the aircraft instrumentation.
Also at this time any malfunctions can be corrected and oil leaks repaired.
The first few hours after an overhaul are critical for the rest of the life of the engine and no effort should
be spared to conduct engine running according to the following criteria. What follows is a very specific
set of power settings, typically periods of full power operation followed by reduced power periods to
ensure correct cooling. If these instructions are followed to the letter the rings will bed into the cylinders
correctly and this will result in a much more pleasant engine with a decent life expectancy provided that
our daily inspection and maintenance procedures are followed. A sample ground run-in procedure is
included in the engine overhaul booklets in Section 9 below.

On completion of the run post-run-checks must be carried out – refer to Sections 9.9.10 and 9.9.11 for
details.
Final Tasks
Unless the engine is to be fitted to an aircraft and used immediately it must be inhibited to prevent
corrosion. Engines which have just been run-in are very susceptible to corrosion and so must be
inhibited immediately that post-run checks have been completed. Details are included in Section
9.9.11.

crankcase breather, exhaust tubes, oil cooler adaptor fittings.
Apply a warning tag to the engine. The tag should state, at a minimum:
- ENGINE RUN-IN COMPLETED.
- ENGINE OIL DRAINED
- CORROSION INHIBITOR APPLIED
- DO NOT RUN ENGINE UNTIL ALL CAPS HAVE BEEN REMOVED AND OIL HAS BEEN ADDED
TO THE SUMP.
Finally, the documentation must be completed. Build sheets and test cards must be filled out. Normally
the statement or report given to the customer will include lists of the new parts fitted. The build sheets
used by Jabiru Aircraft are all included in Section 9 and it is strongly recommended that these are used.

11 Appendix C - Wear Factors
11.1 Wear Factors



The following table shows typical wear amounts per 1,000 hours of operation, and is intended to all the
reader to assess the possibility of components achieving 1 or more cycles.
Note that these values are given as a guide only. Operation of engines with poor quality “dirty” oil/and
or corrosion mixed in with oil has elevated wear on contact surfaces. Many other environment-specific
factors will also vary the engine wear rates.
When carrying out a top end inspection, the overhauler must keep these factors in mind – for example a
cylinder measuring 97.65mm may be within the wear limits for the part but it will not survive another full
cycle. Parts which are unlikely to survive in service for another full cycle must be replaced.

12.3.2 Fretting General Information
“Pulled up” metal
Raised ridge
Figure 202 – Crankcase Fretting




Cases which have suffered fretting can be identified as shown in Figure 202. There will be
characteristic markings on the crankcase joining face near the main bearing journals which can be felt
by scratching with a fingernail – the raised portions will be clearly evident.
Suspect cases can also be checked in the field by checking the torque of the bottom crankcase
through-bolts with the torque wrench set at 28lb.ft. These bolts are set at 30lb.ft during assembly so if
the nuts move at 28lb.ft it is a good indicator that the cases have fretted and are no longer seating
together securely.
An engine which operates for an extended period with fretting can lead to unrepairable crankcase
damage, through bolt failure and engine stoppage.
The main causes of crankcase fretting in the Jabiru Engines are:
a. Pre-ignition or detonation due to lean running, incorrect fuel, low octane fuel, contaminated fuels or
combinations.
b. Incorrect through-bolt torque or uneven bolt tensioning.
c. Reduced through-bolt tension due to cylinder base cracking
d. Cracked or broken through-bolts
e. Poorly matched case halves
f. An inadvertent lean run – for example due to a incorrectly set float level or partially blocked fuel
filter.
g. Running engines with high valve stem-to-guide clearances, promoting oil residue in the intake
system. This has the effect of reducing the octane number (or AKI) of the fuel and can lead to
detonation or pre-ignition.
12.3.3 Fretted Crankcase Repair

Fretting can be repaired by surfacing (or “decking”) the crankcase, then line-boring the crankshaft and
camshaft tunnels. Surfacing should always take the bare minimum material to remain within the limits
set. Excess surfacing will lead to the sump and backing plate not fitting the cases, rendering them
unserviceable.
WARNING
This process requires specialist equipment, tools and training to be successful. Overhaulers must
not attempt this job without access to these items.
 First the crankcases need to be completely stripped. All bolts, studs, dowels, fittings and plugs must be
removed. Heat may be required to extract some items.

Figure 203 – Stripping Crankcases






Cases must be surfaced using a special machine. Care must be taken to not exceed the maximum
allowable amount. Operators must take the minimum material required to remove the fretting damage –
usually removing less than 0.1mm of material is sufficient.
New crankcase through-bolts and studs must be fitted. The original parts must be discarded.
The original crankcase dowels can be re-used, however after the case has been surfaced they need to
be shortened slightly – 0.5mm – and radiused / de-burred on the modified end.
After surfacing the cases must be bolted together and line bored along the crankshaft and camshaft
tunnels.
After line boring the tunnels must be within the newly manufactured tolerance range – main bearing
tunnel is 51.976 to 52.000mm and 20.00 to 20.01mm for the cam tunnel.
During line boring all crankcase dowels, studs and through-bolts must be fitted and correctly tensioned.
WARNING
ALL through bolts and crankcase studs must be replaced in a fretted case.
The same process which damages the cases also damages the bolts and studs and bolt failures are
likely if they are re-used.

After surfacing and line boring the case need to be thoroughly de-burred and cleaned. Studs must be
re-installed permanently using Loctite 620. Remember to fit the O-rings to the studs as required on
permanent assembly. Refer to the main body of the manual above for detailed instructions on how to
carry out this work.

12.4 Crankshaft
12.4.1 Maximum Time In Service
 Jabiru Aircraft apply a maximum Time In Service of to a crankshaft as detailed in Section 9.3.
 Once a crankshaft reaches this Time In Service it must be discarded and replaced with a new item.
12.4.2 Dowel Pins
 Section 5.9.1.1 describes the difference between “old” and “new” crankshafts. “Old” type crankshafts
must be replaced with “new” type or re-worked to the “new” configuration.
 Most old crankshafts can be re-worked to new specifications. Any crank which has not exceeded its
maximum Time In Service and which uses 5/16” flywheel mounting cap screws may be re-worked as
detailed in Jabiru Procedure AVDALSR038.
 Details of this procedure are reproduced below for ease of reference.
12.4.2.1 General

This procedure is for the installation of crankshaft to flywheel dowels on the 2200 and 3300 Jabiru

Note that some early engines use ¼” bolts to attach the flywheel. These crankshafts cannot be drilled to accept
dowels. The crank must be replaced with a new part.

12.4.2.4 Procedure
12.4.2.4.1



Preparation
This procedure is normally scheduled to happen during the engine’s major overhaul – that is, when the
engine cases have been split and the crank removed.
If required, it is possible to drill the crank while it is still in the cases. To do this the timing gearbox must
be removed to allow removal of the cam gear and to expose the crank. Care must be taken to ensure
no swarf is allowed to enter the engine, and the engine must be restrained & supported as noted below.
The photographs used in this procedure were taken on a bench to give an idea of the procedure
involved. In practice, a good quality drill-press must be used. The engine/crankshaft or flywheel must
be carefully aligned with the drill axis and restrained to ensure it does not move.
12.4.2.5 Crankshaft.

The crankshaft should be drilled first. The drilling guide is a close fit on the end of the crankshaft and
should be placed gently by hand or pulled in squarely using the cap screws. Care must be taken, as
attempting to force the fixture onto the shaft may damage the crank. Line up the small hole in the
fixture with the corresponding hole on the crankshaft.
Dowel hole – there are 3 of these on the fixture.
Bolt hole – there are 6 of these on the fixture
Positioning hole in fixture – align with
timing hole in crankshaft.
Figure 207 – Guide positioned on crankshaft.

The 4 cap screws will need to be arranged as shown above so that they don’t foul the drill. As each
hole is drilled move two of the screws around so the next dowel hole can be accessed. Always keep
two of the bolts tight so the guide can’t move.


Use of a suitable lubricant when drilling the crankshaft is recommended as it is a high grade steel. It
will also prolong the life of the drilling jig. Drill the crankshaft dowel holes 10 deep (i.e. 10mm of fulldiameter hole – the tip length of the drill is not counted in this length). When reaming, the guide is used
to ensure a straight entry for the ream. The first time the jig is used the ream will be quite tight in the
holes. Minimum ream depth into the crankshaft is 6.5mm – but due to the use of hand tools reaming to
7-8mm depth is recommended.
12.4.2.5.1


Flywheel.
Like the crankshaft, the flywheel needs matching dowel holes. When fitting the drilling guide to the
flywheel use the positioning hole to align it correctly. Use the 4 x 5/16” UNF screws used in the
crankshaft section above to hold the fixture to the flywheel – use nuts and washers on the rear side
(alternator side) of the flywheel. Move the bolts around so that there is a clear space around the hole
being drilled. Make sure two bolts always stay tight so that the guide can’t move.
Once the guide is in place, drill all the way through the flywheel for each of the dowel holes. Then ream
the holes using the guide to align the ream. Being aluminium it is very easy to ruin the fit of the hole if
the guide is not used.

12.4.2.6 Assembly.

Once the dowel holes have been drilled and before the engine is assembled, dowels and a new
vacuum pump drive (P/No. 4646084) and timing gear (P/No. 4643084) are required. The timing gear
cannot be drilled as it is hardened and Nitrided. Insert dowels once flywheel, vacuum pump drive and
timing gear are installed on crankshaft and loosely bolted up. Knock dowels through flywheel until their
tips are approximately 2mm recessed into the flywheel. Tighten flywheel bolts to specifications.

13 Appendix E – History Of Updates
13.1 Engine Serial Number Decode




All engines are allocated a master serial number at manufacture that is referred to as the “A number”:
2200 engines = 22A-XXXX, 3300 engines = 33A-XXXX, where “XXXX” is a sequential number.
Certified engines are then allocated an additional sequential number that is referred to as the “B
number”, “C number” (or in older engines the “J number”): 2200 engines = 22B-XXX, 3300 engines =
33L-XXX, where “XXX” is a sequential number.
All engine records require reference to the “A number”.
The master list of A numbers and the cross-reference to B (C or J) numbers is kept in the Jabiru
Engines department, and all enquiries should be directed there: [email protected]
