O200 Continental with no mechanical fuel pump in CH650B

Posted on September 30, 2015 at 7:49am 4 Comments

I am building a CH650 and I am planning to use the engine from my old C150 (O200A) that was overhauled 3 years ago. The O200 does not have any mechanical fuel pump on it. It was feed by gravity (high Wing). Anyone has any data on this type of arrangement - converted to low wing? I was thinking of a Primary Electrical Pumps and one or two back-up pumps. Any ideas are appreciated.

Salut Normand,
Non je n'ai pas pris le temps d'y aller mais j'ai bien l'intension de le faire. Comme tu le mentionnes on a pas beaucoup de temps. Je suis aussi d'accord. Pas un travail. Moi j'ai le feeling de jouer au Lego comme quand j'étais petit quand je construis..... pour l'avancement j'ai fini l'alodine sur mes pièces de l'aile gauche et je suis GO pour le primer . De plus je vais chercher mon fuselage vendredi prochain chez Zenair à Midland. Ça bouge vite...... à plus.......

Salut Alain,

Bien vrai. On fait ça quand il reste du temps et ça finit pas mal souvent tard le soir. Par contre, pas vraiment un boulot; justebeaucoup de plaisir à voir l'avancement. Est-ce que tu vas au Chapitre 415 vu que tu es de la Rive-Sud de Montréal ??? Beau travail ton 650.

Ça vole vraiment en plus !!!

Bonne continuation !

Hi Alain,

Don't know who your MDRA inspector is but NEVER close anything PRIOR to any precover inspection. I learnt that the hard way too... Wings, elevator, stabilitor and rudder were closed and had to be drilled/punched out ... Not fun!

If you got the Montreal inspector, don'T argue just do what he says ...Otherwise you'll end up suffering a lot more.

Believe me.
