Task: Mounted battery box and brake reservoir
Tonight we drilled the holes for the battery box and brake reservoir.
3 of the 6 holes are used for mounting the battery box to the
firewall. Two of the holes are where existing rivets are. We
first drilled those out and then clecod the battery box to the
firewall to match drill.
After match drilling the three holes to #10, I reamed an AN3
Next we drew a straight line through the top few rivets on the
upper right side of the firewall. The two bolt holes for the
brake reservoir are located along that center line. I then drew
a straight line down from the center point and opened the hole
up to 1/2 for the fitting to enter the cabin.
After drilling and
reaming the bolt holes, I drilled the holes for K1000-3 nutplates.
