Out With The Old, In With The New

It’s beautiful flying weather here in California’s vast Central Valley but I don’t have a wing so I’m grounded.  Since I can’t fly anyway I decided to do some preventative maintenance on the P3 Lite.  It’s recommended by some in the PPC field that you should replace your fuel lines one a year.  They are made of plastic and slowly degrade over time.  I took the opportunity to do that this morning.  It only took an hour.  It should only take 30 minutes but we’re having unseasonably warm weather here (sorry midwest), the sun was shining, the birds were singing, I figured I’d take my time.

Here are a few pictures of before and after.  Oh, and Happy New Year!


At the bottom are the old fuel lines and fuel filter, the top is the new fuel lines and filter.


The new fuel lines and primer bulb installed on the P3.
