185 dry weight, all up. There is no speed reduction drive. It is a direct drive air-cooled horizontally-opposed 6-cylinder aircraft engine:

I think you are confusing it with a Subaru engine. There are a few of those on quickies also.

All inclusive at 185, or adds for radiator and speed reduction drive?

There have been several Jabiru 3300 engines installed in quickies. Two successfully completed and flown in the US that I am aware of. One is mine, the other was Paul Spackman’s he has since sold his, but I think he put close to 1000 hours on it and he had the GU canard. I have less than 100 on mine, so far. The J3300 engine engine weighs 185 pounds and is 120 hp at sea level at 3300 rpm. It is happier running at a lower rpm’s so think of it as an O-200 equivalent (same power at the same rpm’s as the O-200). The newest version of the Jab (Gen4) has been quite reliable with a change to all aluminum cylinder assemblies (nikosil lined).  


Also, Richard K would be happy to sell you a UL engine.
