ACCIDENT
(From CP21, Page 6, July, 1979)

     Fuel contamination: Steve Stuff had an engine failure just after take off and damaged his VariEze running off the end of the runway. The failure was due to debris in the carb float bowl blocking the main fuel jet. Therefore we are changing Section IV to clean the screens and the float bowl after the engine/taxi runs but just prior to first flight. Note that Section IV already requires a 25 hour inspection and cleaning of the gascolator.
