Time: 3.0 Task: Clecod the ribs back to the fuel tank
skins. Fabricated anti-hangup parts for inverted tank.
we clecod the ribs to the skin of the left and right tank.
We first cleaned all the parts thoroughly with MEK.
fabicated an anti-hangup bracket out of .025" and riveted
it to the access plate reinforcement bracket.
Then we fabricated a doubler plate to reinforce the right
tank baffle to accomidate the relocation of the fuel sender.
The sender cannot be located in the first tank bay due to
the flop tube being installed there. So the sender gets mounted
to the baffle from the rear, outboard of the second rib. The
baffling isn't terribly thick, so I figured a reinforcement
plate would help keep it solid.
we fabricated the anti-hangup bracket for the rib. There is
a possibility the flop tube could get caught in front of the
forward stiffener. The anti-hangup bracket was fabricated
out of 0.25 and pop riveted to both the rib and the stiffener.
