Default Fuel draw engine failure

Stick Jammer: That is what I suspected as well. With a full tank, the pressure was enough since there was enought fuel in the tank to keep up the pressure. Once the fuel level reached the leaky plug, the air pressure escaped through it. In both flights the fuel level that was left was just below the opening of the plug. I appreciate everyone's help on this one, you have given me what I needed. If the wx cooperates this weekend, I will test out my repairs. Just didn't want to leave anything unchecked. Thanks again.
