Fuel Supply from Sump through Firewall:
This subsection covers installation work for the fuel system components between the center sump and the firewall. These are the remote shut-off valve, the fuel filter, and the auxiliary fuel pump. First where did I get each of these:
- The fuel shutoff valve is required because I don't have a manual fuel selector in the fwd cockpit. I need to be able to shut off fuel to the engine for some emergencies such as engine fire. The shut-off is an electrical solenoid valve for which is normally closed and is opened by a switch on the instrument panel as part of the startup procedure for the Cozy. I developed the specifications with Vance Atkinson, who has the same valve in his Cozy III with a center sump. I ordered part number ?????? from Peter Paul.com and they were very helpful in confirming that this custom valve would work for my needs.
- The fuel filter and auxiliary pump were ordered from Airflow Performance and the part numbers are ????? and ????? respectively.
I'll return to this and update the part numbers and installation pictures when everything is installed.
