Re: Changes to fuel system for fuel injection

Chris Walterson
 

Ryan-------------  I am using the SDS fuel injection system in mine.

 I have the standard Q fuel setup with the fuel being pumped to the header from the main and when the header is full it overflows and goes back to the main.  I am using the small  Faccett low pressure pump to fill the header. I  leave it on all the time. I've  left the LP pump on all the time in my other airplane and it has worked for 30 years. This way you don't need to monitor the header tank level all the time.

 From the header it flow to the high pressure pump and then to the injectors. I have two pumps in parallel.  There is a pressure relief at the end of the injector circuit that keeps the pressure steady.

 Mine is the stock Subaru unit. From the relief it then flows back into the header. You need to install another fitting in the header for the return line ,but that is it.

 I think the SDS site has some diagrams and info. They have a video on an 0200 continental injected.

 take care-------------  Chris

Changes to fuel system for fuel injection

ryan goodman
 

For those running fuel injection in their Q2s, how did you end up setting up your fuel tanks, lines, vents, returns for the change. Toying with a few ideas but curious if anyone else has gone down this road. Essentially we're trying to eliminate the use of the header tank as a header tank and either integrate it into one single storage solution with the main tank or setup as two separate tanks with a selector. Open to thoughts and criticism here.

On Saturday I was single place.  I took off on the long runway at KPIE and held it in ground effect until 120K then climbed out at around 2000 fpm.  Flight Aware shows me at 185 MPH (160K) but I was going faster than that.

Once I got out from under the Tampa Class B I suffered a short loss of ADS-B while I buzzed an offshore island that was crazy with weekend boaters.  After the ADS-B recovered, I climbed up to 3000 feet.

The plan was to do some ham radio from the plane and I made lots of contacts.  All of which had never talked to an airplane before.  That's fun.  I try to throttle back to 2300 RPM but my engine gets rough there and really doesn't sound happy.  It seems to like a minimum of 2600 RPM and is perfectly happy at red line.  It appears that 137 mph is the slowest I can cruise where the engine sounds happy.  

While buzzin by Clearwater I see several helicopters and these offshore Hydrofoils tearing up the water.  The urge to fly by a few was strong but I resisted it.  Started wondering if there was a TFR that I missed (nope-checked later).  Turns out the Hooters Clearwater Offshore powerboat races are happening this weekend.  I think tomorrow I'll drive up there to watch the races.  It's interesting to watch these huge cranes lift the boats from the trailers and plot them in the water.  Can typically talk to the drivers also.  https://clearwaternationals.com/

Howdy all from balmy Oklahoma!

Field Of Dreams is "in the book"!  Trivia question, where did the Field Of Dreams title come from?  Quickies for $200!  

 

Over all we had 11 States represented NM, AZ, IA, IN, MASS, CA, OK, CO,IL, KS, UT!

6 Q's with 3-TriQ 200. 2-Q2, 1-Q200.

9-Other planes

Total planes-15

 

A total of 29 people attended the event!

 

We always learn something when at FOD and this year it was a learning experience for a group of Q-Bees who drove to Pawhuska, OK to help Dave Dugas load his Q2 into a large box truck and send him off to Orange, Massachusetts to rebuild a couple of things.  He will need a new engine and repair to the bottom of the belly.  We are pulling for him to get it done and continue enjoying his Oshkosh winner.  Dave had his engine blow up but put it down in professional style on the Pawhuska runway.  No one could have done it any better.  When I caught up with him, to bring him back to Enid, we both surmised that Jesus was instrumental in protecting him.  Thank You Jesus for letting us keep Dave!

And that's how the event started!  

 

While I was gone helping Dave, Honey Lamb welcomed Jon Finley and his RV 4, Charlie Johnson and his Friend David Bramlett in Charlie's Tri Pacer with lots of luggage etc.  Then Kevin Boddicker arrived in his TriQ200 to our wonderful surprise!  Keith Welsh flew in his Thorp T18 for his 1st and longest cross country trip and Rodney Herzig brought his beautiful Cozy 3!  Dave Dugas and I arrived in my Trusty RV6.  Phil Langford (CA) drove in with Jon Hoxie(NM).  Al Spratford, a Dragon Fly builder from Colorado Springs arrived and met us at Enid Brewery for supper.  We sang happy birthday to Honey Lamb at supper!  (She still looks 18)!  The group then was welcomed into our home for more fun and fellowship!  Phil Langford showed videos of old Ottawa Field of Dreams as well as Springfield.  It was fun seeing our younger skinnier tighter skinned selves.

 

Friday morning we gathered for breakfast at the hotel.  After much more jocularity we moved to the airport to welcome Friday arrivals.  Vern Lehman from Manford, OK is building a "Frankenbird" Q/Dragonfly derivative.  Sam Kittle drove his hot rod Challenger.  Sam is flying his Luscombe and building his Q200 in Angels Camp, CA.

Jay Scheevel made his 2nd appearance in his highly modified TriQ 200+ from Grand Junction, CO.  We had a delicious lunch at Barnstormers on the field.  We later threw down a few steaks at Cherokee Land and Cattle Company.  We helped Dave Dugas with his plans to obtain a truck and tie downs etc for his trip back home.

After supper people departed for the hotel and Honey Lamb and I got all "gussied up" for the Vance Air force 80th Celebration and Dance with a 1940's theme!

Everyone was very tired after a big day.

 

Saturday morning after breakfast at the hotel, we moved our planes into the joint use hanger (where the Vance 80th anniversary celebration happened the night before).  Keston gave us free hanger rent for improvising for the Vance 80th celebration.  Sammy Hoskins flew in from Carbondale, IL in his fast, fast Q200.  I clocked him on Flight Aware at 210 mph!  Dave McConahy flew over in his Q2 from Okmulgee, OK (how would you pronounce that big bads)?!  I (Bruce) gave Sam Kittle a little time in my TriQ 200 before we arrived at the join use hanger.  I think Sam is getting close to 1st flight in his Q200!  Greg and Stephanie Garee flew in there Cozy 3 from Tulsa, OK along with their friend,  Greg Hale,  in his RV 10 and passenger Lyle Monkey.  We had Arlene Martinez, Brian Martinez widow and their son Sten Martinez and his daughter stop by for awhile from OKC!  Phil Langford now owns Brian's Q200!  They had a great time connecting. We sent Dave Dugas and loading crew off to Pawhuska to load the Q2.  They were loaded with lots of tie downs, tires, pillows, etc.   Gerry Lynn Fore, Enid, OK ,came by with pictures of past Ottawa fly in times.  Everyone looked sooo young and it was one of the largest Q/Dfly events in history 1995!  Mike Shuck of Wichita, KS drove down to see everyone.  He presented a talk on airfoils last year.  My buddies Gene Martin- Lancair and Mike Porter-RV6 also brought their planes around and joined us for a while.  Ken Girty also from Enid stopped by for a while.

Jay was able to fix Dave McConahy's coax  after we had reviewed the light signals syllabus.  His radio worked fine for taxi and take off. A group picture was taken to commemorate the event.  We then departed for Blaze's BBQ and the banquet.  Jay and I sang a song that Jay had written in the style of Johnny Cash about "Builder Prison Blues".  It was a scream and everyone wants CD's.  We will send the video in another e-mail.

 

Awards were given out by myself at first and then I turned it over to Honey Lamb.  Mary Masal had awards several years ago and stole the show.  So I figured maybe Honey Lamb could do the same.  She didn't know she was going to MC but she was funny and gave out great hugs.  I had to "tap out" Kevin Boddicker as he was just enjoying it to much!  

Best of Show- Rodney Herzig Cozy 3

Best cockpit-  Keith Welsh - Thorpe T18

Best Modifications- Jay Scheevel  TriQ200+ (Jabiru Engine)

Best Q/DFly- Kevin Boddicker TriQ200

High Time- Sammy Hoskins Q200 2000+ hours

Red Badge Of Courage-  Dave Dugas- Q2  Engine issue

 

Afterwards we retired to Crain's for Braum's ice cream and fellowship.  We did a Facetime call with Jim Masal as he was very disappointed he couldn't join us due to Covid.  Everyone loves seeing Jimmey! He can wire bush on the phone!  Farewells were said and everyone scattered until next year!

 

Sunday morning weather was severe clear and everyone was able to leave by 8:30 am.  We really enjoyed hosting and seeing everyone!!

2022 location pending.  Will let you know.  Keep building, flying, and maintaining!

 

Bruce and Honey Lamb

 

 

 

 

 

 

 






Re: Dave

Frankenbird Vern
 

I was on the ramp in Enid just as Dave walked in (still a bit pale). He told me what happened and where, and since I am an Oky not 50 miles from Pawhuska I can vouch that Green Country of Eastern Oklahoma is not an easy location to find a good off field. Lots of large oak trees, stony hills, so not many choices. Had Dave not practiced hours in his bird, the outcome would not been as it was. He told me he had "everything in the breeze" to get her slowed down, being too high on final. Still couldn't get her down until after half the asphalt was behind him! I made the decision on the spot for sure the Frankenbird will have the belly speed brake. And my 40 hours required test area based out of Cushing airport. FLAT..big runways and no trees to speak of and about 30 miles from my homestead. EAA Arlington in 2012 offered a seminar by pilots who experienced in flight emergency of one kind or another..mostly in the Seattle area. I was really impressed at each presenter. One speaker had three rather scary I remember. Dave will have to say his engine choice but talk at the table, Jim, was on the 2300 Rev Master. Not a bolt on but a workable mod with not too much cowl revision. Charlie had a good point on VW automotive vs aviation heads, and RevMaster did the engineering to throw off the heat effectively.

Hi Dave,

I thought I would wait until the dust settled but you did an admirable job saving the airframe. Thats one of the reasons I don't like taking long trips and possibly stranded several states away from home. Did you have to clean the seats? Ha Ha. I've been there and done that and it was very scary. I dead sticked into Livermore a few years ago during one of our airshows. It puckered my butt real good. Are you putting a Revmaster back in it or exploring options?

Dave I wish you a quick return to service. Sorry to hear about your mishap.

Best,

If I had been in Dave’s shoes, having a friend hovering over would have been an answer to prayer.  I’d know I’d have assistance without delay.  Just to draw confidence from a friend…

 

While working at Sebastian FL airport 2004- retirement in 2016 I helped rescue quite a few forced landings on and off field.  Several while I happened to be flying and could quickly pinpoint the landing site.

 

We are all happy this one worked out without injury.  We built our planes once, we can rebuild or start over.

I think this will be the 7th or 8th time for me to take off the engine.  My avionics guy needs to get to the alternator.  In the past, it was a normal process and all I needed was the engine hoist.  However, this time the tail is off so I am currently supporting the fuselage by resting it on a short table while the engine stand supports the front from tipping forward.

How would you guys recommend me supporting the fuselage while removing the engine without the tail on?  Should I simply just put the tailback on for the meantime and remove it again once the engine is back on?
