I'm from Tauranga, New Zealand (NZTG).

Have my 30yr old build Varieze flying well, and my 25yr old build Quickie Q200.
Time to get back in the BD5! I did have one some years ago but stupidly sold it - regret!

Had the snow mobile engine but I was looking at fitting a Microturbo T76 I have in it.
I've got another very well made BD5 fuse/wings and am set to install the jet.

But need some help! Tried to talk to manufacturer and get specs but nothing.

Don't suppose anyone has info they could send?

Issue is fuel pump for it. We've tested a number of different ones but not found one that works properly. Unit will have a FADEC control.

Googled around and found this forum - you look to be the place to be!

Kindest from me in 30C temps!

Hello. Maybe whatever fuel pump is used on the Sonex micro jet will work for you. They're still supplying parts. If not PBS might know.
