Update: Faucet Fuel Pump Ticking Sound w/ Plenty of Fuel

Corbin
 

I couldn't find my previous thread on this so thought  I would start a new one.  My transfer pump (Faucet), when running with  plenty of fuel in the main tank, now clicks/ticks just like when the fuel is low (air).  To be sure it wasn't the fuel pump starting to fail, I went ahead and replaced it with a new one since that is a cheap and easy process.  However, the new one also clicks/ticks.  It seems to be pumping plenty of fuel as it will quickly start to return from the header, as normal.  

So, it seems the next thing to check for is air in the lines somewhere......but how/where  do I start on that?

Re: Q2 Project

Hi Brad, 
Any chance I could get a copy of what you have drawn thus far? I have a Q2 that I rebuilt years ago with a Subaru 1.8 liter, then crashed. I need to replace the canard and firewall and thought maybe a new drawing would help get me going on the the effort.  So any SolidWorks drawing would be much appreciated. 
The bird has been hanging from the ceiling since 2005 and I finally have the house at a point where I can think about the QBird......200 hours of the most fun I have ever had in an airplane!

If you read the part of the plans about installing the bulkheads, they allow the builder to vary the angle and size of that bulkhead to compensate for pilot size. There is also some variation allowed in the forward/back position of the main tank for the same reason.  I would just suggest rotating the base of the bulkhead backward until it intersects the fuselage. The original plan required a lot of cutting and fitting. The 4 fuselage shells were oversized and needed to be trimmed and there were no marks to help the builder do this, only small drawings. There was a lot of work involved to get a good fit between fuselage and bulkheads. No two of these planes are identical once they are complete.

Yup, that’s right. Do you have a angel between the seat bulkhead top und bottom? Not sure which angle they should? Something else between 130° and 150° maybe?

Re: Flight Report

 

Speaking of flight reports:,  
This would be a request to Sam Hoskins about his cross country flight info that he has on his blog.
I tried to push the link but no info is there.
Sam , is there anyway I (we) can get your story to read while on lockdown?

Re: Q2 Project

Jay Scheevel
 

If you read the part of the plans about installing the bulkheads, they allow the builder to vary the angle and size of that bulkhead to compensate for pilot size. There is also some variation allowed in the forward/back position of the main tank for the same reason.  I would just suggest rotating the base of the bulkhead backward until it intersects the fuselage. The original plan required a lot of cutting and fitting. The 4 fuselage shells were oversized and needed to be trimmed and there were no marks to help the builder do this, only small drawings. There was a lot of work involved to get a good fit between fuselage and bulkheads. No two of these planes are identical once they are complete.

Hi Guys,
 
I was going through some DVD’s that I created a number of years ago and I dug up one that I made in 2005 and had forgotten about. It is excerpted from video and photos I took when I went with my oldest son, Thomas. He was 12 at the time, and it was a wonderful trip for both of us. A number of circumstances conspired to create a circumstance that made it extra special for us. None of these did we know about in advance of planning our trip….it just happened. The list is follows:
 
  1. Scaled/Rutan brought White Knight, Spaceship One, and the Global Flyer to the show. 
 
  1. Burt also brought a large number of Scaled employees to OSH.
 
  1. Chris Weiser was one of the ones who came to OSH with Burt. He is a mechanical engineer who worked for Burt for 20 years. He is also the nephew of a family friend here in Grand Junction (his aunt taught both of my boys 3rd grade). 
 
  1. We had previously met Chris at his Aunt’s house where he gave Thomas a Voyager pin that had flown to space on the first Spaceship One suborbital flight.
 
  1. When we were “outside the rope” looking White Knight and Spaceship One and taking in the afternoon airshow, Chris happened to see us and brought us inside of the security for a personal tour.
 
As a result of all of these things happening, my son now has his fingerprints on the nose of Spaceship One that is hanging in the Smithsonian…. Since that was the next stop after OSH 2005
 
I had forgotten that I put this DVD together and sent a copy to Chris Weiser as a thank you. He retired from Scaled the next year. I have converted the DVD (26 minutes into an online video and put it on my website. Here is the link to the video, so you can watch it if you want. There is the usual menacing Oshkosh thunderstorm, where you will see our tent where we camped next to my old Cherokee. There is also a nice intro by Paul Allen in the evening program. Paul Allen passed away last year, but went on to start the Stratolaunch program after this and Matthew Curcio now works on that project. The photo montage in the last 1/3 of the video contains a nice photo of my son standing in front of Bob Malechek’s beautiful Q200.  Hope you enjoy watching. 
 
 
 
Cheers,
Jay
