did you get the problem with your header tank being sucked dry before your
main tank fixed??  What was the verdict?

I Am not sure yet. Its been raining so I have been unable to fly since last
week. But the problem appears to have been directly related to the main tank
churning like a washing machine.  After examing the main blades they were
out of balance. I fixed them.

If your header tank goes dry when the main tank is about half full the
problem is probably that the clunk line has fallen off in the main tank.

No need to ask how I discovered this gem. Had to throw those 'fruit of the
looms' away.
