Re: Fuel supply questions

Thanks Mike . I have 5/16 from the header so It should work OK . If I keep the fuel pump in parallel Then I am covered . It might be better to quit the high mounted mech pump and use my vac pump mounted low.
Still thinking.

I'm operating with 1/4" fuel lines but have a straight downhill run to
the carb and am careful to keep my fuel lid sealed... I'd rather have
3/8 lines but I was flying for years before that became the standard...
20 years in the air and 1000 hours.
