  • Navman fuel sender installation pics

    Here are the pics of how I professionally installed my Navman sending unit in a vertical position. After carefully creating some pretty intricate designs using carbon fiber, I decided on a plastic strap support system. [8D]

    The wire straps are synched just tight enough so that the unit doesn't move, but not too tight to distort the fuel line. After two seasons it has worked pretty darn good!

    Since you have posted this without any trademark or patent pending notice I will feel free to copy this design. Just not sure about the high tech carbon fibre?????????? But the basic concept seems simple enough. I believe this qualifies you for a injuneer badge

        alabat - I've always wanted one of dem badges and the CF was in the first design which was scrapped in favor of a KISS design. [88]

        Capt Kevin - What is that in between the sender and the metal? Some high tech paper? [8D] BTW, looks like a stress crack right above your stringer. [:u]

          I'll take a stab at this and say, sticky back wire tye mounts.

          Am I right?

            You would be correct. And the top one needs to be fixed. []

                When installing this unit, if I have 2 fuel tanks, and place the tank selector valve in the middle or neutral position (neither forward nor aft), will that cut off fuel flow (aside from the issue of draining what is in the lines of course)??

                  I CALLED NAVMAN LAST AND ASKED IF I COULD PUT IT UNDER THE ENGINE COWLING AND, THEY SAID THEY DID NOT SEE A PROBLEM WITH IT. I HAVEN'T INSTALLED IT YET. BUT TO HOOK IT WITH THE BIG BRASS PERCO FILTER AND KEEP EVERYTHING ON THE OUTSIDE WOULD BE A PITA.

                    I don't know if it would withstand the vibration under the cowling. All you need to do is install it inline in your fuel line somewhere, preferably AFTER a filter.
