Jay,
My buddy has a 3300 on his Aeron Lightning.  He sets his cruise by Fuel flow.  At full power he sees like 12 GPH but sets his cruise to 5 GPH.  It appears this engine runs really rich mixtures at higher power.  He has carbs and no mixture control.  Is yours like that?
Fly Safe,
Mike Dwyer

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.

 

Cheers,

Jay
