Re: **New** 50cc Checkmate from Aero-Works

Ray,

I just opened the package on 2 new secraft fuel filters and I tossed both of them. They both came apart with just a little force. It definitely sucks that you had to rebuild your firewall as a result of a shabby filter design, just glad you didn't lose the entire airframe.

Hi Dave;

It was'nt hard to see why the motor quit !!!! Half of the filter on the tank out let , the other half on the carb. inlet side . Just vibration had made it come apart . Hope this post saved you and others from this problem .

If you run inline fuel filters ------ check them to see if they come apart

Ray
