Exactly. I?ve used this sort of valve before and there?s no need whatsoever for the valve positions to actually be located toward the absolute left and right. So long as one is left of the other, you have two positions which make spatial sense. It?s not even necessary to look at it.

Turner and Ken,

We anticipate that the majority of builders will continue to utilize the stock Vans valve, for which we have supported drop in CNC bent tubes for several years.

Due to an increasing number of calls from those who wanted either a type 7 Valve configuration or a Duplex valve configuration, we decided to invest the time to come up with a solution.

Our prototyping and R and D is very much based on what we hear from other builders, and what they ask us to develop. That's why these projects were launched.

The beauty of these planes is the ability to customize. The type 7 valve isn't any better or worse than the stock Valve. For those builders who find it more aesthetically pleasing/intuitive, we wanted to design a solution. The fact that it was difficult to do increased the motivation factor.

The word "Impossible" is not in our vocabulary. Part of the fun of this hobby is finding ways to make things work. It also challenges us to continue to increase our capability to design and manufacture increasingly complex components. This is important for our direct end use customers as well as the OEMs that we work with. As Tom alluded to in a previous post, we have been in the middle of a large equipment and design capability restructuring for the last 12 months. The ability to prototype things like this quicker and more accurately are part of that shift.

Happy Building!!!!!
Steve

After the recent release of the RV14 SDS duplex cabin and wing root fuel line kit, we received a lot of feedback from builders who were interested in a wing root filter setup for the standard cabin fuel line setup.

We are now announcing the release of a Wing Root Mounted filter setup that fits together with the standard cabin fuel lines.

This setup removes the filter in the center tunnel and adds a high quality serviceable filter in each of the wing roots with a shutoff valve for servicing during the conditional inspections. This kit is available as a complete kit which includes all the Cabin Components as well as the Wing Root components. Or it is available as an add on kit for those who are utilizing our Rv14 Cabin Fuel Kit, or for those who already completed their own cabin fuel lines.

We look forward to your comments as well as continuing to develop products based on your feedback.

Happy Building

For those wanting to utilize EFII in the RV14, the SDS install package shares about 95% commonality. Everything aft of the valve is identical. Forward of the Valve, a few of the hoses change slightly and there may be a mounting bracket modification needed.

We are going to support both installations in the cabin.

Anyone who wants to utilize our drop in system can order the EFII option now also. The first couple of installs may require a slight hose length change in one area, but we will work with the first few builders to ensure everything fits as nicely as it does with the SDS installation.

Also, we are now releasing the Firewall Forward Hose Kits for BOTH the SDS and EFII systems.

This information, along with install pictures are located at

Have fun building and please feel free to contact us with any questions.
