I'm gonna guess that the fuel tubing was getting pinched when the fuselage was assembled. Ron stated that it ran fine off it's own tank with the fuse apart.. and engine mounted in it. This might also explain fuel spurting out the vent. If the line was pinched by the fuse.. grabbing hold while winding the starter spring could have squeezed the already-pinched line enough to dribble out of a full tank.

My Hyper Viper is hands down the best flying airplane Cox ever made. Yes even better than the Super Chip and the ME-109. Mike
