Online Community of Zenith Builders and Flyers
Hello fellow builders,
First off, I should say that I am not the first Scott Smith on this forum. To save any confusion, you can call me Pennsylvania Scott or just use my middle initial (P)
I am building a 701 that I adopted from a previous builder. Right now, I am assembling the right wing and in particular installing the gas tank.
I am not sure what kind of power I am going to be using. I am keeping my eye out for deals on used engines (nothing but second best at my house) If I can"tt find anyone giving away brand new 912s, and I need to go the new engine route, I believe it will be a Viking.
My question: since Viking (Honda) engines are fuel injected, don't I need to install a fuel return line? Can I plumb that right back into just one tank and not both? Don't all cars nowdays have their fuel pumps in the actual fuel tank?
I realize that these questions are probably answered in any engine installation manual that I will get, but I am trying to avoid going back into the wing skin when I go to run fuel lines
Check out the Viking web site. They have a fuel pump and small tank all set up to use. Duel electric pumps are in this Gal.? Tank with the return to this small tang. A very nice setup.
Thanks for the reply. Five minutes after posting, I did see the video that Viking has out about their fuel system. I should have realized that a header tank with a wet fuel pump would make the most sense. Guess I shall set in place my finished tank tomorrow and maybe replace skin clecos with actual rivets
