BMcCand - N248CT Posted December 27, 2011 Report Share Posted December 27, 2011 I'm completing the 5yr Rotax service. I had drained all fuel, and the plane was dry for about 10 days. Yes, I'm slow... but careful. Upon re-assembly and re-fueling with 10 gal, I tried to drain at the gascolator and got a small dribble. Checked hoses for kinking, fuel valve operation, all Ok. I finally had to 'prime' the fuel system. I taped off one wing cap vent, then applied shop air to the other vent. I did it loosely with a cupped hand and the air nozzle. I have the metal fuel filter and the metal pipe for the tight bend under the panel. After priming, the fuel flow out of the gascolator was normal. No particles found in the gascolator screen. Has anyone else seen this problem? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
