Default EFII fuel pump installation ?

If you installed the EFII system, where did you mount the dual fuel pump? Stock location or somewhere else? Either way how did it workout?

Default Pumps

I mounted my pumps on the left side tunnel wall and installed an access panel on the right wall. Made the plumbing easier... canít say how it is going to work as Iím not flying yet...

Thanks for the reply. Noticed the Barrett engine. I did same. Mine arrives in two weeks with the EFII installed by them. Good luck.

Was going to say. 14 must have a different tunnel than the 7/9. I installed mine right on top of the center tunnel cover in my 9A. Basically turned the tunnel cover into a mounting deck. Put in a nice thick .050 plate under the tunnel cover as a reinforcement doubler. And no, no version of the doghouses would cover it. Itís just exposed for now until I fashion some kind of cover.

Nice build! That'll get you anywhere you want to go. That sounds like some interesting bends in the fuel lines. Did you bend aluminum tube or use flex line?

Syrus---if you are using a EFII injection with a RV14A, YES you can mount the pump. Thats easy---the extra set of rigid tubes from the Andair Duplex valve to the side bulkhead fittings---well not so easy. And the tank connection tubes to the fuse bulkhead fittings---not so easy.
That conversion does take alot of thought, planning, and more planning. Steve and I have done a few 14's with the SDS pump. "Similar" pump configuration to the EFII.

I also mounted mine in the cabin, on the floor. I plan to build a cover for them as well.

Mine in not flying yet. Few more months to go.
