Pressure line

Check that the pressure line to the fuel tank is correctly fitted to the pressure nipple on the muffler, and that the pressure line itself is not blocked.

Engine quits on T/O
by: Yuconman

If the plane has ever been in a hard nose in landing or crash, the fuel pick-up klunk may be in the forward position in the tank, thus on T/O fuel shifts to back of tank starving engine. Shake the plane to see if the klunk is in the back of the tank, if not, shake it up and down vilently to shift the klunk to back of the tank.

Happy Flying

I am having the same problem on a fairly new engine. Did anyone ever solve this?
