Thread: C24R fuel drip

    C24R fuel drip

    I recently noticed a slow fuel drip from the tube right next to the
    fuel drain on the belly. This is the first time this has happened in
    the 6 years we have owned the plane. Any ideas what might be causing
    this?

    Thanks,

    You probably have a leaking seal on the fuel boost pump, and will have to obtain an overhauled pump.

    I had the same problem a year ago, and had the pump overhauled by CJ Aviation in Florida. It was around $500 and took about a week to turn around. In the mean time, make sure to set the fuel selector to OFF when you're parked.

    It sounds like you flooded it.

    You talking about the vent line from the pump, right next to the gascolator
    drain? Could be bad boost pump. There is a "vent" line on the pump Leaks
    from the vent indicate a pump failure.

    Pull the cover and have a look.
