I just wanted to give an update that due to the popularity of the rigid tube packages, we have taken steps to streamline our production. We now aim to keep several sets built and in stock. In the event we do run out, we are able to now build these on a 3 business day lead time. Wing rigid tubes are the same. The flex lines retain their standard 3-5 business day lead times. (More to come on all this including some new videos of a major shop upgrade we just completed related to rigid tube development.)

The current website message of reduced availability until 3-20 is NOT applicable to any of the RV-14 hoses and tubes.

Happy Building!
Steve

I just wanted to give an update to all our RV-14 Customers. We are currently on Revision 7 of the installation manual for our cabin fuel and brake line package. We have a lot of these being installed at the moment. We always appreciate and welcome customer feedback, and the additional pictures and data you provide allows us to update our installation manuals to make it even easier for future builders.

This revision adds some information on the parking brake installation, as well as some additional pictures for different parking brake actuator cable routings and part numbers that customers have been utilizing for the cable actuator assembly.

We also updated our Firewall forward hose package install manual to Rev 3 dated 7-14-18. We have added several additional hose configurations to include a backup pad mounted B and C alternator for the RV-14A and an upright B and C oil filter for the RV-14A.


Here is a link to the updated manual

Please clear out your browser cache or the new options/updated PDF files may not show as available on our website.

We also updated our rigid tube video section of the website. For those of you who purchased our RV-14 cabin fuel package, the 11:30 mark of the Rigid tube video shows how those tubes are now being fabricated.

Thanks again to all the builders that have contacted us requesting custom hoses for different configurations on their aircraft. This has helped us to create a massive database which is growly daily of many different hose configurations that are custom to the plane and options that YOU want.


Steve and Tom

Default Perfect fit RV14-A

Steve,
I just installed the fuel lines I purchased from you on my RV14-A, perfect fit. I spent 3 hours completing all of Section 31 (Fuel System). The fuel line brackets from Van's took half of that time. Your pre-bent lines fit perfect. I am not sure how much time you saved me but I know those fuel line bends are complex on those short tubes. Your machines for bending those tubes are setup perfect. You and other parts suppliers have made my quick build experience enjoyable! Thanks

I am glad that you liked the installation. We have really enjoyed working on rigid tube development for several of the RV models.

I see that this is your first post on VAF. Welcome!!! And thank you for your comments. It's posts like this that make us really enjoy what we do. We love innovating new things and helping builders in a small way toward their first flights.

Thanks again and we hope to once again earn your business when you are ready for your firewall forward hoses.

Take care,
Steve
