I am a technical guy, so maybe bear that in mind. However, I thought this whole thing was really quite easy to do. I measured the pop-off pressure before rebuild and it was 12 psi...however, once 'popped' it would then not re-seat and would not hold any pressure ie it kept letting more fuel through, causing my floodin

  6. Once you're trained, come fly with us at fly-ins (when they resume) and other regular gatherings. We're all keen to share our experiences and help each other out. You'll solve a lot of issues and learn a lot of stuff by hanging out with experienced pilots.
