during my pre flight today, my 12 year old Facet 40 105 electric back up fuel pump made lots of clicking noises but could not develop any pressure.usually it clicks a lot until it developed pressure than slows down. Today all it did as click a lot with no pressure, and no slow down.i ordered a replacement today from Aircraft Spruce.just curious if anyone else ever ran into a similar problem with these pumps.i know they just quit and stop making any noise, , but I have never heard of one stop…See More

Brackett Air Filter users, Please Read!

i have been a user of Brackett foam filters for years, at my just completed annual, 12 months, 65 hours I found my BA-4108 severely disintegrated. This was not visible from the front of the filter, only when I removed it. See the photos. I inspected my carb and intake tube and found no contamination. I was very lucky to catch it in time. Engine is a Continental O-200.i contacted Brackett, Scott, the head guy was very concerned, he offered to pay to inspect the carb and intake for contamination.…See More

My Viking Bungee Comments

I have owned my AMD factory built 601XLB for almost three years. I replaced my tired bungee at that point in time. As you all know it's a pain to do once an engine Is installed.Well, 200 flights later I see signs that the bungee is starting to deteriorate.Viking came up with a permanent replacement so I installed it.Seems well engineered. The install looked easier than replacing the bungee.Unfortinately it seems that the factory built AMD does not have the plastic cap on the top of the strut.…See More

O-200 parts source pushrods tube seals newer design

I have a continental O-200 of recent (2006) vintage. It has the newer spring loaded pushrods tubes. I want to replace the seals on the tubes, but can't seem toFind a source for the seals. Spruce and Chief and all the regulars seem to stock the older style with the wire clamps. I know Real has a kit to convert, but I don't want to convert when I already have a similar spring tensioned system. Any suggestion?DaveSee More

Hey, If you need or are going to need tires, Desser has a special. If you buy a tire they give you the tube for free!I always am amazed that the tube is almost as much as a tire!This is a Thanksgiving sale for a few days.I just bought a tire and tube from Aircraft Spruce and paid over $50.00 for the tube.So i just bought two more from Desser for $124.00 with two free tubes, saving me over $100.00Just put the two tires in your purchase cart and the free tubes will show up automatically.I don't…See More
