Pin problems?

If your tank suddenly loses throttle control and the FUEL CONTROL FAULTY caution light comes on during operation, don't panic.

The problem could be something as simple as an electromechanical fuel system (EMFS) connector pin, NSN 5315-01-205-8647, that's vibrated loose and fallen out.

Before calling for a tow, try shining a flashlight into the engine compartment. Most of the time the pin ends up in the small cupped area under the EMFS. If you find the pin, slip it back into place and you're good to go.

Just make sure your mechanic replaces the pin when you get back to the motor pool. The next time it falls out, you might not find it.
