Brief Description:  Fuel Plumbing Through the Cabin 6

With all the appropriate hose diameters and fittings, today I temporarily installed the fuel selector to determine the length of the forward run for each hose. The intention is to have the 90 degree fittings of two return lines snuggled in forward of the two feed lines. All-in-all I'm trying to keep this junction as compact as possible.

Once I determined the correct hose lengths, I trimmed them to size then attached all 4 hoses to the selector with hose clamps. I also used a product I recently heard about called pure silicone seal lube which not only helps to bolster the seal for these hose connections, but also makes it easier to remove the hoses when they come due for replacement every 5 years or so.
