AN6 to metric bayonet fuel line fitting


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know where to get the aluminum fitting that guides fuel between the AN hose and metric fuel metering block? (It's the black thing in the picture). Considering how tightly AN connections are screwed together, it's unlikely that I'd be able to remove this one intact enough to be reused. TIA

Thanks, ThermalSeeker, but nope. In the Rotax stuff, it's shown only as #956312 which is a Banjo-to-1/4" hose nipple fitting. Nothing shown either on the Rotax diagrams or on these supplier websites does this conversion for an AN6 end. The match is rather critical, since the banjo bolt contains a restrictor which divides the ~20 gph flow through the fuel circuit to the ~5 gph feed to the carbs and plays a key role in final supply pressure. Altering this balance, set during manufacture by Aeromot, seems unwise.

Surely a solution exists or perhaps every Ximango is flying around with 20 year old hoses, passed at annual "on condition".
