Task: Assembled interior parts
a few hours tonight assembling the parts I primed last Sunday.
It's amazing how it takes weeks to fabricate and prepare parts
to be installed and only a few hours to assemble. I was able
to get the center cabin cover, cover between seats, fuel valve
cover, fuel pump cover and flap actuator assembled. I also
riveted many nutplates to all the different pieces.
I riveted the fuel pump doubler plate onto the center cabin
cover. Then I installed several nutplates for securing the
fuel pump, fuel pump cover, and the center cabin cover to
the floor stiffeners.
I attached the heat baffle plate in place and installed several
more nutplates onto the center cabin cover.
Using a variety
of yokes on my hand squeezer, I was able to get all of the
rivets on the cover inbetween the seats by squeezing them.
cover has both sides riveted on.
Next I riveted the
stiffenter angle onto the fuel valve cover and attached 8
onto the flap channel where I squeezed the rivets for the
nutplates around the parimeter...
the doubler plates for both ends of the flap motor bolt...
finally squeezed the rivets for the bracket that attaches
the flap channel to the F-705 channel.
attached 2 nutplates to the fuel valve bracket and 3 on the
fuel selector itself. The Andair fuel selector is a very well
built product and far superios to the stock Van's tractor
To finish off the day I installed the side covers on the fuel
pump housing with AN426AD3-3 rivets.
