Coming out of the sump is a fuel shutoff valve, ours is controlled remotely from a T-handled lever glassed into a pocket on the keel and then exits the firewall through a bulkhead fitting. On the firewall, the fuel tubing goes to a cleanable strainer, the electric boost pump, and then to a Floscan fuel flow transmitter. I’ve allowed a fair amount (though not quite the recommended 12″) of straight tubing before any 90 degree bends to get more accurate flow readings. A 3 ply Triax layup was made to create a fuel pump and fuel filter mount.
