Thanks Jake. It’s a fantastic machine and true testament to Steve’s craftsmanship. I’m currently enjoying going through all the paperwork that arrived with the aircraft. I think Steve kept every piece of paper that related to the build.
As part of 159SJ’s conversion to British skies, it’s having a new radio and transponder, so while we’re working on the panel, I’d like to see if we can get the fuel senders connected up to the VM1000C. Steve wasn’t using that function, and had a couple of Van’s gauges installed separately, but it sounds like that might have been due to some early teething problems with the unit. Hence the question to see if other owners were at least having some success. The unit had a factory update in 2014, and seems to be performing well, so it stays!
I’ll post some updates as things progress.
