Brief Description:  Sec FF1-5 step 1

Well, IT finally happened, THE ENGINE GOT HUNG!!!!! HORAY, but even today had it's challenges. Before remounting the engine mount. We needed to add an eyeball firewall passthrough for the fuel purge valve return line. Then we remounted the engine mount only to find that the original placement I had for the purge valve return line was interferring with the engine mount! So foo came the mount, and we relocated the purge return line. (See pic0 and put a plug in the old hole and sealed it with a bolt and washers and Permatex. Back on with the engine mount only to discover that some bolt heads I used to plug holes that I drilled for a shunt that was interferring ALSO interferred. OFF with the mount again, replaced the bolts with countersunk screws, permatex and washers, back On with the mount, NO INTERFERRENCE THIS TIME!!!! Back ON with the nose gear. and then at long last THE HANGING!!!! took place. Moved the hoisted engine up close and personal and John Ackerman who helped all day, and I got the lower mounts,spacers,bolts,washers and nuts on, then tried the top, but we were a little too high, so we loosened the lower assemblies, droped the engine a smidge, and then were able to pull the upper ones by wrenching them in, Got everything cinched down and torqued, then stood back and enjoyed the moment. Our EAA chapter is having a project day tomorrow at my home so I need to clean things up a bit!
