gbigs Posted July 26, 2016 Report Share Posted July 26, 2016 The new owner and my old CFI were up in the CT yesterday with ground temps over 100f. They were flying for 2 plus hours and got to 8k feet (68f oat) and the engine quit. They restarted the engine and put on the Aux Pump and the engine ran fine after that.... Vapor lock. The wife and I never got that in the plane because we never flew in such hot temps for long periods of time. So if flying for a long time hot and want to climb over 8k feet make sure to put on the Aux Pump. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
