Debris in float bowl

Recommended Posts

On 12/31 I was doing a last flight before hose change to get the fuel level down. On climb out about 600' AGL the engine began to run rough and lose RPM. Immediately reduced power and it smoothed out and ran fine. Terminated flight and dropped the float bowls. Both had debris in various sizes. The largest being maybe a little bigger than the period at the end of this sentence. I suspected debris in the bowl as soon as it began running rough. Classic symptoms.

I will check filters tomorrow and proceed to pull the engine and do the 5 year hose change and replace motor mounts.
