Mr. Autenried:

Your name turned up on the Race Products page. I am building a 750 Cruzer and am curious why you plumbed your wing root the way you did.

I have two things going: 1) The folding wings kit, which (if I actually use it) will require access to the wing root to disconnect the fuel and vent lines 2) A UL power injected engine which will oblige me to use a header tank, but am plumbing both fuel and what has become the vent line from the tank to the header tank in AN-8. Your placement of the shutoff valves interested me.

No , I built my own CH 720 and I did put the heater option in my plane. If you go to Viking's web site and click on NEWS . There is a write up on me that I wrote for a local EAA group newsletter.

Hey, Peter,


Just searching around and found you are still there. Beautiful workmanship for the fuel tanks and valves.


Sold my 750 but flew the 701 this AM after a few weeks off.......fishnig. Remembered how to land and it still purrs like a kitten. Will finally finish it with a wrap in November. Am building a Fisher 202 Koala from plans as we speak (wood and rag).


Hope all is well with you and yours. Email to if you have a mind to.

Hi Peter!  I'm just starting to get the hang of this Facebook thing, so please forgive if this is a duplicate.   Very impressive fuel system! I'm building a CH750 and hope to use the folding wing option which will require quick-disconnects for the fuel and return line.  Do you have quick-disconnects on your plane as shown in the pictures?  If so, could you please advise me as to what size and brand are they and where did you purchase them?
