Rather a poor installation if you need to remove the engine for access. Presumably they have fitted the Leburg units in the box that used to house the magnetos? If so you may be able to remove the fuel tank to access the end of the box which may be removable....or access from the side via the panels...

Re: Leburg

Hi Malcolm, The fact that the failure has been progressive would suggest that the fault is not down to a supply/earth problem. Can you remove the Leburg Module easily? If so I recommend you remove it, remove the cover and check that the i/c (integrated circuit) has not come out of its holder, or tha...

Re: Fuel tank needed please.

Hi Paul, What isn't evident from the pictures is that the aux tank is not flat bottomed, but is deeper at the front, the photo of the tank was before the plumbing was complete, but you can see two bosses at the front/bottom of the tank (the deeper part) where there was a drain for the aux' tank.
