Brief Description: Finished VS install, prep for fuel flow
Received my latest care package—including bolts needed for the VS. I installed the lower 3 bolts that attach the VS to the fuse. Although the plans call for -6 bolts here, I used -7 for the two upper and a -6 for the bottom bolt. I could only feel 1 thread on the upper bolts using the hardware called for in the drawings, so went with the next longer bolt. Now I’ve got a couple threads showing. I tightened (torqued) the 9 bolts and marked with torque seal. Next, I removed the upper and lower cowling, then loosened the fuel line to the engine driven pump. I will connect this to some clear tubing in order to check output of the electrical pump.
