SERVICE LETTER #1
All Kitfox™ OWNERS
DENNEY AEROCRAFT COMPANY
STRAINER: Denney Aerocraft strongly recommends that a finger
strainer be installed in the outlet of the E-26 Fuel Tank. The finger
strainer (our part number E-42, Fuel Tank Outlet Screen) will help
prevent fuel flow stoppage due to foreign matter in the tank. All E-26
Fuel Tanks manufactured now have 3/8” NPT threads formed in the tank
sump. If you have the older style with the aluminum block molded into
the sump, you may drill and tap it to 3/8”
NPT which will allow
installation of the E-42 Fuel Tank Outlet Screen. We have only
experienced about a 50%
success ratio in
drilling and tapping these older style tank outlets.
the aluminum block out to 37/64” and tap 3/8” NPT. Go very slowly
and carefully to avoid turning the block in the plastic tank, use
aluminum thread cutting fluid. If the aluminum block turns, it will
destroy the seal and the tank will be unusable. If you do ruin the tank
attempting this modification, Denney Aerocraft will sell you the new
style tank at our cost of $38.34 plus shipping.
satisfactory installation of the screen, an E-23 Fuel Line Outlet,
1/4” NPT x 90 degree x 1/4” barbed fitting is required to complete
the connection from the screen to the E-22 Fuel Line Hose.
