Brief Description:  Install A/C Hoses

Kept working on the installation of the two primary a/c hoses that run from the firewall through the fuselage tunnel to the condensor. This was one of those gotcha days. The plans show one size hose attaching from the firewall to the left side of the condensorl. The other hose runs on the opposite side of the tunner from the firewall aft beyond the condesor to the evaporator located behind the baggage bulkhead. I've been using Greg Hale's web site as a further guide and he ran the hose as depicted in the plans. So, I did the same. It appears, at some point in time, the decision was made to swap the location of the hoses. This change makes sense as it allows a more direct routing of the larger hose aft of the condensor. Unfortunately, the plans have not been updated and the only way I discovered the change was when I further inspected the condensor fittings which are two different sizes. Granted, I should have double checked before I ran the hoses. Lesson learned. I subsequently had to swap the hoses from one side to the other. Not really a difficult fix, just took extra time. Anyway, hopefully the instructions will get updated.
