Don't have to stretch with the Onan.  It really is a lawn mower, welder, generator engine.  I've even had admirers say the prop looks like a lawn mower blade....
Not sure they were admiring though.....jealously I think?

I have an aversion to fibs even if is for a good cause, so I have come up with the following description: “A custom off-road recreational-vehicle”  That pretty much keeps everyone happy.

I believe Eugen was asking about these, "two Walbro pumps and the 10 micron fuel filter from Summit Racing".

They can easily be found on the Summit Racing website.

It's an obsolete gascolator. If you have a chance to buy one, don't bother. The clear tubing is for my static ports, just moved out of the way whilst changing the pump.

Re: Fuel pump & condition inspection

Jay Scheevel
 

Thanks Sam. Cool to see your layout. I might suggest putting a second adel clamp and mount at the base of each pump (similar to what you have at the top) to limit longitudinal vibration. May increase the life of the internal pump components.

 

Cheers,

Jay

As I was coming back from Topeka a couple of weeks ago, one of my fuel injection fuel pumps gave up the ghost. I have a redundant setup, so no problem. Since I have to take the tail off to replace the pump, I thought I may as well do my annual condition inspection.  Here's a couple of photos. It shows the two Walbro pumps and the 10 micron fuel filter from Summit Racing. BTW, I run my injection at 40 psi.

I have a seven-page inspection checklist in the Files section of the Q-List, and I think I've pretty much covered everything. It would also be useful for that final inspection before a first flight.
Here it is: https://q-list.groups.io/g/main/files/inspectionchecklist-carb-01.doc

Take care.

Re: Unusual Approach to Landing

Well, at least now I know what "fly to the numbers" means.
I would have responded, "what numbers ?".

I've been around some deltas where the tower mantra seems to be the opposite of, "keep things predictable".

Have been on a high 1/4 mile final (helicopter) when the tower yelled for an immediate right 360 to make way for a plane on 1/2 mile final.  Made it seem like the airspace was out of control.

Re: Option for lifting wing

Whether air bag or hydraulic, do take precaution against jack failure.  Don't be underneath anything that could drop.  For wheel service the risk is not great.
