Upon receiving your pump, be sure to go through this checklist to avoid warranty issues and potential safety risks.
- Force flushing multi-bay wet wing fuel tank systems.
- Thorough internal inspection of each of the fuel tank bays.
- Removal of accumulated water and debris.
- Check all lines for dry rot and damage.
- DO NOT RUN DRY.
- DO NOT use Teflon tap or sealant of any kind.
- DO NOT disassemble pump.
- Only energize pump at rated voltage.
Another helpful guide upon installation is our Aircraft Fuel Boost Pump wire configuration.
