Hey folks!

There were a bulletin for this fuel pump:

Continued operation of a non-conforming fuel pump can cause fuel leakage out of the airframer’s vent line
or into the engine crankcase.

And that what happened!

Got very lucky indeed so.

My plane despite only 143 hours since new was bought from a professional Company in 8/2015

They never told me about that bulletin despite they have a department just for that...
