Cessna 172 POH (Fuel System Schematic)

Thu Oct 30, 2008 1:04 am

Does anyone have a copy of the 172 POH, and would be kind enough to scan the fuel system schematic? I have a presentation on the 172, and even went to the trouble of ordering a POH from Essco, but I don't think it's going to arrive in time (looks like it got held up at the border). Specifically, I am looking for the 1974 172M (or any model with a gascolator instead of a fuel strainer) but I won't be picky! Major thanks to anyone who can help me out.

You know the gear is up and locked when it takes full throttle to taxi to the terminal.

All I have is the 172R, will that work?

These are scans of the 172R PIM, hope this at least helps out somewhat, though I know there are some differences in the fuel system between the -Ms and the -Rs

Big version: Width: 1014 Height: 1700 File size: 190kb
Big version: Width: 1020 Height: 1700 File size: 186kb


On the 172R, one is for serial#s 17280001-17281187

The other is for 17281188+

Best I can do for you is the same, a C172R model, or even the C172S model. The only difference there is a slightly different setup for fuel gauges, being digital for the G1000. If you want that one, I can get it scanned in for you.

Thanks Northwest, those will work.

Only thing is the aircraft in question has 1 drain per wing tank and a gascolator. If anyone has something close to this please let me know. Otherwise I will use the 172R and just explain the difference.

Yeah, these are the newer 172s, with the 5 drains/wing and the 3 drains on the bottom of the fuselage, near the engine. When do you need the drawings? I might be able to get an older 172 manual scanned tomorrow...

Ironically, my presentation is on an engine failure due to water contamination which probably would have been prevented if the aircraft had 5 drains!

The presentation is on Friday so I would need it by tomorrow night. Don't go to great lengths as the ones you have sent already are good enough if necessary.

Another difference is the additional header tank, and the fuel pumps the in R/S models for the fuel injection system that the previous models did not have.

I'm sorry, all I could find was a 1982 Cessna 172RG model PIM. It's fuel system is closer to a mid-70s model than the 172R, however, it has a electric boost pump on it, so still not quite the same.

Thanks for checking.

You need this by when?

I have C172 POHs going back to 1956; up in the attic, dig, root, root, dig.

You want my hand-calculated Vref speeds for a 1960 Skylark? Nope? OK, more digging.
