One of my original Viking supplied 110 fuel pumps is acting kind of strange. Anybody know what the original pump was sourced from or where to get a replacement? Thanks - BradContinue

I have a OPTI T-60 cable tensiometer that just came back from a rebuild at the factory. This is a great cable checker for Zenith aircraft, one hand operation and is easy to set with a direct tension…Continue

Hi Brad, I upgraded my pumps to Viking's 'in-tank' pumps, so these I have here are surplus. Whilst I'm out today, I'll ask the Post Office here, the cost of postage to CA - just for curiosity. I'll then msg you. I assume they are compatible to the 110.
We've been to Irvine! Have a Sis in Law lives in San Clemente.
Mr Rawls I talked to Jan about building box under the fusalage and putting the pumps and the filters there. I saw a 701 with a box that ran his fuel lines across the bottom and up the fire wall. I dint know if putting the pumps and filters there would be a good idea or not. On the Viking site I saw a Rans-19 and he left the low pressure filters off and used the filter in the fuel tank and the high pressure filter in line. About the cowl I just didnt know where to start cutting. The vidoe on the Rand 19 shows a little but I sure dont want to mess the cowl up. Thanks and I will keep looking for anyone that has done a 601xl cowl
Mr Rawls I talked to you once before about the fuel pump location. I still havent installed them butg i saw a Ran 19 with them in stalled on the firewall. I liked the installation. I wanted to ask you how you did the fitting for your cowling. I cant find anyones vidoes are comments on installing the cowling. I wanted to use Skybolt fasteners on the cowl. I was told I might have to use an extension to move the prop out so it would clear the cowling. Was this a problem for you?
Thank you Mr Rawls I will start looking into your installation. Im just finishinf the last wing so I will be starting setting up my engine and fuel system. I hope I will have mine flying this year.
Thank you M
Mr Rawls Im building a 601XL and have the Viking Engine. I have been looking for someone using the Viking to see where they installed there fuel pumps and filters. I thought about putting the filters in the wing but didnt know where to put the pumps. I saw one 601 that installed them on the firewall in the engine compartment but I was told that is not a good idea because of a chance they could vapor lock because of the heat. Just thought I would got some ideas from 601XL builders who were using the Viking engine
