Re: Seat Tank Fuel Gauge

Oh man, so putting weights on didn’t compress them so I opened up the left one and cut down the foam 50%.  I’m hoping after the “cut down” foam compresses then I can add back the rest.  I left the right seat one alone.

I have the dial mechanical gauge, like Sam’s. I also have a capacitance gauge. The dial gauge will be difficult to install after the fact, without getting a lot of contamination (fiberglass and foam dust) into the tank that will have to late be removed from your fuel filter. I would suggest repairing the floating tube gauge that you have, or putting a capacitance gauge in that same location. Just my two cents.

I see that Sam Hoskins has a dial gauge in his seat. Where does everyone else have their main tank fuel gauge?

Mine has a clear tube going up by the pilot's right leg (and not working).

Thank you very much

Look in my photos section in the Q-list photos. I have several photos of the Coughlin brakes, plus a dimension sheet. The Coughlin brakes are an improvement over the LaRue, which were an improvement over the QAC brake mounts.

I also have an article about them on my blog.

The only glaring omissions I've found on quickheads are the QAC Q2 introduction foldout and the drawings for the Coughlin brake mod. That and the QAC Photo Addendum to the Q2 plans and Builder Tip list.

Not familiar with the Coughlin Brake Mod but there is a Gall wheel alignment that most guys use.  Sam Hoskins is the go to guy for split rudder/tail wheel cables and I think he has the alignment procedures.  Jim Patillo is also a go to guy as his Q200 is really tame on landing and take off.

Jim Patillo
 

Here’s another cable option that allows for differential between rudder and tailwheel but Sam’s
set up is a lot easier to install especially on a finished airplane. Like he said, no destruction.  (This is one of the six pack mods). I think this mod is like dual finger brakes vs dual toe brakes, it’s a matter of individual taste. They both accomplish the same thing.

No destructions needed, this photo shows all.  The turnbuckle cable goes to the rudder bellcrank.

Do you have instructions/drawings/parts list for your cable splitter in the files section somewhere, or on your blog? Might be an easier retrofit on a completed bird.

Yes, the old pump was repaired.  But it's so old that I'm only going to use it in the airplane now.

Maybe instead of solid state the new ones are "quiet state" 😁

Mike: Do you think the diode could be replaced and the pump repaired? Be an interesting data point and might leave you a spare...

Would be kind of fun to run the Facet+BraveX pumps side by side 24/7 circulating a test fluid to see how long they last. Anyone got 83 days to waste??

Re: Hobbs Wiring

Good idea, I'll try that. Now that I think about it (and now six states away from the plane), the main bus isn't that hard to get to.
