Scott, can you please confirm that Vans concurs with the information from Lockwood - that the part number 889691 vs. 889694 is irrelevant, and that we should only be looking at the serial number range.

The earlier fuel pumps were labeled that way. Rotax subsequently changed to individual numbering. My initial fuel pumps (May 2019) were labeled as yours are. They were replaced due to being in the serial range for the previous SD. The replacement pumps received January of 2020 were uniquely numbered.

Sorry, I can not.

Lockwood has much more knowledge and experience regarding the fine details of the Rotax engines. I trust what they say.

Okay, well I guess I need a clarification from Rotax. Seems odd that they would list the 889694 part number in the SB and then say to only look at the serial number range.

The 91 part number looks like the one used before the pump bulletin in 2019, and 94 is the new part number.

I agree, but if they have good control over the issuance of serial #'s such that the same number has never been used on two different pumps, then using only the serial # would be valid. Maybe the people at Lockwood know that that is true.

Just got off the phone with Trisha at Lockwood. She said once registered with them, they will:
1. Set you up in the queue.
2. Send an email 3-4 weeks from date they can work on your pumps.
3. When they are ready for your pumps, they will send a 2nd email.
4. Upon receipt of the 2nd email, remove and ship them your pumps.
5. They service the pumps, send them back to your 2-4 days.
6. Re-install your pumps and get back that RV grin!
7. No cost to you except shipping.

Really dumb question…I can’t fly until I get the new pumps right?

I might as well pull the pumps now and package them up to mail out the day I get the email right?

You have one year. See text in the SB.

“Carry out this replacement of the fuel pump assemblies listed in section 1.1., according to the instructions in Chapter 3 at the next ROTAX® scheduled maintenance event, but at the latest after 1 year (from the date of the initial issue of this Service Bulletin)”

Can't be too serious, then, except for the part about "Non-compliance with these instructions could result in engine damages, personal injuries or DEATH!"
