Cessna: 152; Sinking Carburetor-Floats; ATA 7322

This respondent describes practicing touch-and-go landings. He had reduced power and turned base when the engine suddenly quit. “An uneventful landing was made, and after climbing out of the aircraft, fuel could be seen coming out of the cowling. Further investigation found one of the fuel bowl floats to be ¾ full of fuel, and the other was ¼ full. This caused the float to sink and fuel/air mixture to be rich at reduced power settings. (These two events...) caused the engine to flood out and quit on the approach to land.” (Carburetor listed as a Precision. No part numbers were provided. The SDRS data base records three other float related defects.)

Part Total Time: 509.5 hours.
