Short Description:  Install Cowling

1630 - 1806

Install Airwolf oil lines. One line was too long so I sent it back to be shortened. Tom at TS Flightlines is great!

Verify distance from front of ring gear to back of disk. According to the spinner blueprint and an actual measurement of the spinner back to prop flange, this distance should be 40 mm.

I am going to use 1/4" as a nominal spinner to cowl clearance. This distance is visually pleasing and allows for vibration of the engine.

The instructions for the Showplanes cowl say to mount the cowl using Vans instructions as a guide. I have begun by notching the bottom middle of the lower cowl to clear the nose gear leg fairing. As Vans measurements were obtained from the intake snorkel, they will not work with the showplanes cowl. I estimated the distance and cut an initial slot. I will now gradually increase the length until a satisfactory fit is achieved.
