|Test Line returning fuel to the Left Tank. Jumper cables were used to ground the plane to the hangar, via the exhaust pipes.|
*Special Thanks to RVer Jeff Johnson for helping me through this phase of the project!
Jeff helped me trouble shoot a leaky fuel line. Turns out, my left tank to fuel selector line was a hair short. As a result, a AN sleeve pulled the flar through ,ruining the fit and drawing air into the line. No wet leak was seen, just a faint fuel smell! This was detected by constant air bubbles in the clear fuel test line. We elected to make a new 3/8 line using 5052 alum tubing. This is much better than the cheap crap Vans supplies you with in the kit.
