This is my photo that is in Roberts website. Very low profile. Filters in wing roots. Similar to pix above. No gascolators.
I did look at the website and saw this picture. Very clean installation! What sort of filters are you running in the wing roots?

Here is how I mounted my FlyEFII boost pump with an Aerolab Gascolator. Needs a custom doghouse cover but that is easy enough to do

Our universal version without the shutoff valve. The 90* bulkhead fitting is in the side skin hole, then a swivel coupler, the filter then a 180* bent tube/hose assembly that routes to the tank. Filter is backwards in this picture--it was for mockup.
Similar ideas for the RV8, RV10, and RV14. Components may change due to configuration of the fuselage/tank fittings. The RV10 and 14 have fuel shutoff valves for servicing, can do a similar package for the RV7/9's and the 8's.

Holy cow Tom, that's perfect! Is that a reusable filter element? How many microns/flow rate and what do you charge per unit?

40 Micron stainless screen, yes serviceable. LOL---not on my TS FLightlines website--which quite honestly is obsolete. Long story. But most of the new products are on our combined site asflightlines.com. It piggy backs off the aircraft specialty site.
We'll have the RV14 version at our booth at OSH 948. Easily adaptable to most anything in the wing root.
Cost without the shutoff valves---as pictured is $399.95.

FWIW, here's my Weldon mounted behind the rudder pedals.
No 'Dog House' to deal with.

Walt- It's a shame you weren't here with this great advice when I was deciding which pump to buy...

...Oh wait, you were, and I was like "$1,200 for a fuel pump! Forget that!
I'll go with a more complicated but cheaper option, it's not like its a ton of extra time and effort or anything."

Terry, the install for the AFP, EFII or the SDS pump isnt hard, or complicated. You can install them anywhere you want. But, you have to do your own engineering and fabrication work if you move it to a 'different' location. It all depends on the amount of work you want to do.

In Garets case, he wanted to use the Aerolabs gascolator, located in the tunnel under the selector valve. That in itself added to the complications. One of which was the installed height differences in the pump and gascolator. He wasnt concerned about having to make a new pump cover. Below are the mockup pics we did. YES, crude, but we had to mimic the installed height of the gascolator. We set that height first, then raised the spar mockup with the selector valve the appropriate height to mimic the final installed height. Garet was going to add a height extension to raise the pump---since he was making a new cover it didnt matter.

Then all it took was making the rigid tubes. Hose was out of the question because of the tight bends and confines of the enclosed area. MANY different tubes were fabricated to see what would solve the problem. This is what we came up with, working under the criteria that Garet gave us. Im sure there are other possibilities, but everything was a compromise.

Thanks Tom- I love the idea if filters in each wing root, but I have to confess that with payment for an engine and avionics looming, I'm pinching my pennies and will have to think about it for a while before dropping and extra $800 to get there.
