Awhile back, it appeared as though one of the SR20 owners and his A/P mechanic helped identify the cause of the cold start problem on the SR20. Don’t remember the details, but believe it was related to a fuel valve not opening properly during startup (low voltage?). Did CD confirm this was the problem and issue a SB to correct it?
Recently saw a note on the forum indicating that SR22’s were even harder to start. LONG priming required. Frankly, there is no way that 60+ seconds of prime would do anything but flood the cylinders with fuel UNLESS there was an obstruction in the fuel system somewhere. So, if we’ve got another starting problem, I think we need to press CD to address it, rather than rely on an owners A/P to identify the fix for them. If the post was a random problem, then I’ll just hope it doesn’t turn up on 7174P!
Feedback from current SR22 owners ?
