PAW 06 fuel draw question
 
OK group Have started the Polk tiger moth with the PAW 06, really cannot pressurize the tank with a fitting on the muffler such as other engines
Do you think the PAW will have a problem if fuel pickup in tank 3/4" below carb center
If has to go up will require quite a bit of work to modify fus. to do this, to get tank higher if we do we do but would like to avoid martin

It should be fine, low end might get a little lean at the end of a run but diesels don't stop as easily as glow engines do.

Mr Cox THX to get the tank higher would have to do a total rebuild front of the plane cut off the whole top forward of the windscreen to firewall and its glued over a piece of curved foam

A 2oz tank for an 06 is big, would most likely fly off only about 1/2 before landing and refueling

Martin,

What about an external FF style tank.

Dave Owen lists them, sorry I can't extract the pic but here's the link. http://oea.modelenginenews.org/pricelist_2011-04.pdf

Martin,
from the PAW web site-
<font size="2" face="Times,Times New Roman">"Fuel level in tank during starting procedure MUST NOT BE HIGHER than in the same horizontal plane as jet. A little lower (up to 1cm) is alright. "

</font>As to pressuring the fuel tank have you looked at crankcase pressure? Perhaps the back plate is thick enough to accept a pressure nipple.

P.S. just looking at your other post on this it would seem that you have quite a bit of tank space behind the engine on the radial mount .

Greg pulled backplate very thin a no go on that one, one other thought smaller tank, whats the approx run time on the PAW 06 on one oz fuel martin

guess at least 10 minutes at around 10K

guess I could go to the source and call PAW

For what it's worth, I had one in a little CL stunter. It would still draw quite ok with the nose pointed straight up, and the pickup a good 2 1/2 or 3 inches below the level of the spraybar.

Steve THX you just relieved my anxiety on this one martin

I really did not want to do a hack thing on the moth plenty of room for the 2 ouncer just need a little opening up on the bulkhead wit dremel and drum sander on it

Steve,
what was the inverted stunt run like with the spray bar now 2 1/2 inches below the fuel feed pipe?

steve111 01-20-2013 07:29 PM

RE: PAW 06 fuel draw question
 
Sorry Chris, I think you've misunderstood me. I was referring to when the nose was pointing straight up. Inverted, the pickup is naturally level with the spraybar again.
