Task: Fuel pump cover, center cabin cover,
and forward deck
we got a lot of miscellaneous tasks completed. It started
with lowering the fuel pump cover. Since we are using the
Andair pump rather than the stock Airflow Performance pump,
we won't need nearly as much room for all of the prescribed
tubing. The Andair fuel selector will feed directly into the
filter which is screwed into the input of the pump. A 3/8"
line will run from the output of the pump to a passthru in
I marked up F-7115-L/R so there was 1/2" remaining on
the front edge. I used the sheer to cut it shorter and then
placed it a brake to make the bend.
the left and ride side were cut down and bent, I used the
piece of angle I cut off as a template for the mounting holes.
Here is a trial
fit of the now lower pump cover. Notice the front edge is
at about 1/2 above the F-782C center cabin cover.
we mounted the pump housing on the center cabin cover and
attached the fuel valve cover as well. Everything fit well
and we drilled for the #6 and #8 nutplate.
bent the heat louvers on the forward portion of F-782C. We
placed the cover upside down on the workbench and used 2 2x2's
to set the bend line on each louver. Using my hands, i was
able to manually bend each one. It worked quite well, just
be sure to start on the outside and work your way in!
louvers on one side have been bent.
completed the other side.
we started work on the forward deck by drilling two rivet
holes in F-644-L/R. Using a piece of scrap we were able to
clamp it in place and drill them using F-768A as a guide.
off the day, we edge deburred all the parts I hope to prime
