Cessna T182T Turbo Skylane
Defective Fuel Pump
The aircraft was inbound when the engine began to lose power. The pilot used the fuel boost pump to keep the engine running and landed without incident. The engine ran fine at idle on the ground. With the engine off and the fuel selector turned on, fuel ran freely out of the fuel pump drain line. The defective fuel pump (p/n 201F5008) was replaced.
Part total time: 23.0 hours
Cessna T206H Turbo Stationair
Defective Fuel Pumps
Engine would not perform properly during engine start and idle operations. Installed four successive defective new engine-driven fuel pumps (p/n 200F5006) at direction of field technician. Finally received manufacturer approval to install a different pump (p/n RG9080J8A/M), which fixed the problems.
