Brief Description: Temp install top skin, bubbles in brake line
I added one more nutplate to the back of the f/w for an adel clamp holding a wiring bundle on the engine side. Then, I attached the top skin—wanted to be sure the skin, f/w and hinge pieces all line up well. They do except for the very lower hole on the right side. There is a temporary pop rivet between the fuse and the f/w—hopefully when I remove it things will line up. I received a fuel line today from A/C Speciality--this line runs from the servo to the red cube. I need one more line to run from the cube to the spider--on order. I continue to have some small bubbles in both brake lines. I can chase them out, then rapidly work the brakes and some come back. Surely there can’t still be some air trapped in the master cylinders. I have re-wrenched all fittings except where the lines pass thru the floor of the gear towers and tie into the drilled gear. Tomorrow, I’ll pull the lower gear covers off and check in that area—beginning to run out of ideas here.
