Sniffle Valve Questions
I have a Lycoming IO-360 w/horizontal sump and fixed pitch. I live in Minnesota, but we plan on doing a lot of flying around the country, including altitudes and warm weather.
Q1. Anybody have a clue as to why my FW kit would ship with a sniffle hose, but no sniffle valve? Seems a bit strange to me.
Q2. From other posts on this site, it seems to be the general opinion (but not consensus) that a sniffle valve should be installed. The fact that one was NOT included in my FW kit has me wondering, however. Could I get a few comments from those with engine expertise out there?
