Harold Campbell RV-8 Project
September 5, 2005: I took these pictures of
Harold and his RV-8 project when I stopped for fuel at Carthage, Texas (4F2) on the way
home from Texas.
He is getting near the end of the project as you can see in this photo showing
his Lycoming IO-360-C1C6 200 HP engine already mounted to the fuselage.
The panel has a way to go yet, but it will be minimal IFR to be sure he can
always get down if he gets into any unexpected weather.
This second view reveals the elevator trim knob on the panel and details of the
fuel selector valve down at the bottom left corner of the photo. You can also see
part of the fuel return system for the fuel-injected engine.
I was surprised to find the fuel vent line in FRONT of the tank attach bracket
on the side of the fuselage. He says it is per Van's plans. I will have to
check out that page when I get back home to help Wendell with his RV-8.
The fuel-injected engine requires this fuel return system that I did not have
to build for my carbureted engine. This is what you see when the floor of the front
baggage compartment is removed.
