  1. Welcome aboard Vaughn! Theres multiple topics on cruise settings try out the search functions. Tons of information to sift thru on occasion topics wanders.... I've seen your plane somewhere before.
  2. The pump is after the strainer/selector and sends it to the engine after. I agree it is not a gravity system not using head pressure. But it does pretty much gravity feed/equalize to the the strainer. Here's a fun exercise, empty one tank, fill the other. Turn selector to empty tank remove the strainer bottom/bowl then turn your selector to the full tank and see if you get fuel. My point is up to the strainer it pretty much does gravity feed/equalize unless the fuel pickup goes higher than fuel in the tank.
  3. But how can you be sure the seals are perfect in your selector? If they aren’t you’re going to have an engine out situation. I would fly on 1 tank seals on selector not perfect turns it into what an extra vent in the system? Fuel is going to go to the lowest point in the system which is the strainer. Unless the dry tank is pressurized it will do nothing but act as a vent, maybe get fuel backing up the line until it equalizes with the level in filled tank? Either way the fuel will still go to lowest point and fill it before air from other tank
  4. Light sport - Guy a few hangars down is building an rv12 whole kit including engine $87k Experimental ready to assemble kits. Or offer a build service @ x amount of dollars but there would be lots of legalese in that contract and nobody wants to be the responsible party. There is also alot of variation on how people would tackle said assembly. Which is where PMA/TSO are meant to convey confidence Vans rv has set the model, and others have followed. I believe the word certified and certification are where exponential costs are incurred due to the drawn out time consuming "certifica

  10. This place was awesome! Needed an ignition harness called a more well known (better advertised) name company told it was a 12 day lead time after 13 days they hadn't even charged my card for a single harness. Read this post decided to give them a call last Thursday placed an order, told 3 business days then drop shipped. Called cancelled the original order. Got both harnesses shipped cheaper than the other place. Here it is Monday and sure enough as promised, harnesses delivered. Very pleased. Now I can get the plane put together and annual complete. Heres to Mooneyspace the network and knowl
