"Ok, now I get it.  I didn't realise those were the small header tanks w/integral fuel pumps.  Makes more sense to me now.  Bob Jones has the only 701 in our area, that I can think of, flying around on floats and skis.  "

"Is this a new build, or just replacing the engine?  While it looks as if your fuel system would work fine, I'm surprised you're not installing a Viking header tank with integral fuel pumps."

"Ronald, did you already install the fuel system as shown in the schematic, or asking a question?  "

"If you're talking about the Viking 130, the pumps at the header tank push fuel at around 42 psi to the high pressure pump (attached to the engine), which then boosts the pressure as high as 2,200psi. "

"Yes, but your ambient temperatures will likely be cooler as well."

Loren Warner replied to Glenn Davis's discussion Emergency replacement for Waterless Coolant
"According to Evans, if there is significant coolant loss and no Evans waterless coolant is available to fill the system, it is ok to fill with water or a water-based coolant. Repairs should then be made as soon as possible, and the system should be…"

Loren Warner replied to Kris Nostrand's discussion Viking 130 paired with Zenith CH650 - Meets ELSA?
"Don't know why you'd choose to build LSA, but if because of future medical reasons, maybe build as experimental home-built instead and consider BasicMed https://basicmedicalcourse.aopa.org/pub/bundles/course_61001/downlo..."

Loren Warner replied to Kris Nostrand's discussion Viking 130 paired with Zenith CH650 - Meets ELSA?
"With regards to keeping the aircraft LSA, I'd be more concerned with the engine's weight. To me, the 130 seems a bit heavy for LSA, but I'm sure others will chime-in soon."

Loren Warner replied to Phil Cook's discussion Heater control
"We enclosed the outlet side of our heater core so the heat could be redirected when the fans are on. Don't know how much this helps when the fans are off, but just letting you see what we did. https://www.facebook.com/Experimental750ES/photos/pcb.…"

Loren Warner replied to Phil Cook's discussion Fuel Pressure Sensor Location
"Purchased the filter from Viking. I don't remember the brand filter but they're common. Our fuel goes through two other filters before reaching this one. Filters installed between each wing tank and the header Tank, and each fuel pump has its own…"

Loren Warner replied to Phil Cook's discussion Fuel Pressure Sensor Location
"On our Viking 130, we installed the fuel filter and pressure sender on the engine side of the firewall, with the fuel pressure sender between the filter and high pressure pump. Works fine. I'd keep them off the engine for many reasons, such as, po…"

Loren Warner replied to Justin Tisdale's discussion ADVICE NEEDED! NEW GUY HERE! PLANNING FOR THE 130 BEFORE I EVEN START THE BUILD ON 750 STOL.
"I just noticed you plan to purchase an engine this December. I'd wait to see how the build goes before buying an engine. Viking is always making improvements to their engines and reduction gear, and when the time comes, you'll want the latest and…"

"130 is a good fit for the 750. 180 may be more power and weight than desired. Since an ECU controls the engine, the 130 is a good choice to reduce pilot workload. These engine do require a low pressure fuel pump to supply fuel to the engines high…"

"Mike has a beautiful aircraft.  I'd like to know where Mike got those cooling louver/vents he added to the sides of his cowl?  I've seen those on carbon cubs but cannot find the source."

"Would be nice if those of us with 750 STOL's and the 130 engine got to know each other to share data.  Jerry, my number is 907 349-0804."
