Brief Description: Install Oil Cooler Mount Spacers
1400 - 1530
Fabricate and install aluminum spacers for oil cooler mounts.
The spacers were made using standard techniques using the Smithy Lather and thick wall aluminum tubing. They were finished to 3 7/16" long. This allows an AN960-10L washer to be installed on each end of the spacer. I decided to use the washers as there are slots in the oil cooler; the steel washers span the slot and provide a flat surface for the spacers to bear on.
Once fabricated, the spacers were installed on the oil cooler. Bolts were then torqued to appropriate values.
