September 2014- Q: Hi Steve,
I have a 1968 Arrow 180 and I am trying to determine the proper routing for the fuel hose between the electric fuel pump and the mechanical fuel pump. My current routing brings the hose under the engine mount tube where it makes a tight bend (radius) up to a 45-degree fitting on the mechanical pump.
The current placement makes it impossible to remove the lower oil filter screen without damaging the firesleeve. I would like to compare mine to other PA-28R-180 installations as I suspect the hose should route over the engine mount tube and then straight into the mechanical pump. Attached are pictures of my installation.
