Flying Bozo Posted December 27, 2016 Report Share Posted December 27, 2016 So for the last 5 years I have been burping my CT to check the oil before flying. That works fine and gives an accurate oil level check. Then I meet a fellow pilot who has a 912 in an ultra light and he does the following. After each flight he checks the oil and then before the next flight he does not have to check it but unlike the CT he can leave the mags off and crank the engine for a few seconds before starting to fill the oil resevoir. The CT does not have an independent mag switch that allows that procedure but if I did not choke it first it would not start right away and would then turn over for a few seconds and pump up the oil to the tank. So the question is do we burp it to get the oil out of the sump and up to the tank or are we burping it only to get an accurate oil level reading. What does happen if you don’t burp it and just go ahead and start it before any cranking it over? Larry Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
