    F12x Center of Gravity

    Not finding it in the service manual. Anybody know where the CG is on a fully gassed F12x? Middle of the cylinder head seems too far back.

    Slide a nylon strap under the hull and hoist it up sliding the strap until you find the CG. The CG will change with more/less fuel due to the arm of the tank being forward of the CG Datum line.

    Thanks JR. Now my issue is not having a place with a hoist to do this. Same story as always...

    Use a tree limb and a rope pulled by a car bumper if you don't have a come-a-long. It is only 750 pounds. You could also use a bottle jack under your trailer [against the hull] to find the Datum line on the hull.

    Re: F12x Center of Gravity

    With the tank being mostly under the steering assembly, the oil tank and flywheel being at the front of the motor and the weight of the turbo and pump being near the back I bet your going to find CG to be somewhere around #1 or 2 cylinder. Are you just curious or do you have some mods in mind? Or are you trying to find the best place to sit and pin it.
