Brief Description:  Andair Fuel Pump Kit 10

Almost down with this forward cover, pump and tubing. I mounted the angle bars and pump/filter in the fuselage to run the two fuel lines.

One line goes to the valve the other goes out the firewall. I'm still not sure these fuel lines will remain like this all in one unit. Later I may redo this whole fuel line thing with segments and disconnects. We'll see.

It was tough to make the tube from filter to valve. It is a tight turn and not enough straight runs on the ends to make flange with blue nuts on. I finally got it done, using muscle to bend it carefully without kinks.

Speaking of kinks are kinks bad? Photo 3 shows some kinks. Should I redo this? I'll send to Vans for their comments. I might be looking for an alternative flexible tubing for these fuel lines.
