Phil Cook replied to Phil Cook's discussion Viking 130 shutdown by shutting off fuel pumps?
"Thanks John. Always good to hear real-life results and experiences. Do you have the bleed-back line from the check valve manifold to the header tank to relieve pressure in the lines after shutdown?"

Phil Cook replied to Phil Cook's discussion Viking 130 to Garmin G3X Touch via CAN bus
"Got it - the CAN bus from the ECU only exposes the core engine data, not the things we're really interested in (gearbox temp, fuel pressure, oil pressure, etc)."

Phil Cook replied to Phil Cook's discussion Viking 130 shutdown by shutting off fuel pumps?
"Well, this wouldn't be starving the "light" pressure pump, it would be starving the high-pressure pump; I think that's what you meant? But I understand - your stance is to shut down the engine by cutting power. On the depressurization of the…"

What is the liquid capacity of the 'stock' 130 cooling system (with the standard radiator)? I know there will be slight variances based on the way it was plumbed but I'm looking for real-world quantities. I received one gallon of Evans prep fluid…

"I just saw Jan's response to the "A Neeewwb Question": "The issue in regards to shutting down the engine with the “high” pressure fuel pumps is that you would starve the “higher” pressure mechanical pump and empty the fuel rail of pressure, making…"

I'm in the final stages of fuel system installation in my Zenith 750 Cruzer. Trying to think ahead, I'm making sure to position and connect all components with future servicability in mind. To start - what are the specs of the fuel filter supplied…

Phil Cook replied to Phil Cook's discussion Fuel Pressure Sensor Location
"I see, thank you; food for thought. So do you plan on replacing the fuel filter at annual or some other frequency? Do you know what the filter brand/model is?"

I have the Viking dual-pump header tank with the manifold/check-valve assembly. However, rather than mount the fuel pressure sensor to that manifold as the directions state, it would seem to make more sense to have the fuel pressure sensor mounted…
