2001-05-31: UPDATE Maintenance and Manufacturing reported that a new engine had just been installed on the right side. The noted incident ocurred as the auxiliary fuel pump was turned off. Turning the aux fuel pump back on restored steady fuel flow. Maintenance checked the fuel system, did a number of run-ups, and then test-flew the aircraft. The problem could not be duplicated and the aircraft has operated normally since. Maintenance feels that some air may have been trapped in the system as a result of the engine change.
2001-05-29: UPDATE TSB reported that the Cessna 414 had departed Regina and was enroute to Winnipeg when the right engine (Continental GTSIO-520) momentarily hesitated. Because both engines were new, the pilot elected to return to the Regina airport as a precautionary measure. The aircraft landed without further incident. The operator advised that the aircraft was inspected but no fault was found. It was determined that the hesitation resulted from vapor lock.
