Brief Description:  Fuel vent system

There is a possibility of venting fuel overboard with high pitch attitudes and full fuel. To preclude this, I elected to extend the vent line 28 inches forward of the fire wall and inside of the over head plenum. This will create a substantially higher "high" spot in the vent system during "nose up" operations. I fabricated a 3/8 in aluminum vent line that extends from the 4 way manifold up across the firewall and spar to the top of the fuselage. From there it goes forward 28 inches inside the overhead plenum and loops around back to the firewall and down to exit the plane at the bottom
