Brief Description: Brake resevoir lines to brake cylinders-1
After I installed the stainless flex brake lines to the master cylinders, I bolted the rudder/brake pedal assembly into the fuselage. Connected the flex lines to the inlet side of the parking brake valve. Ran a length of plastic tubing from the left cylinder around to the T fitting on the back of the brake reservoir—followed the routing per plans. Added a couple of Adel clamps to secure the plastic line to the flex line near the back of the brake valve. Installed the plastic line to the brass fitting on the master cylinder. Had a real fun time getting the 2 Adel clamps together to get a screw through them. Finally used some safety wire to squeeze each clamp together, then dropped the screw in and tightened the nut. Removed the safety wire—will need to use it for the other side. I secured the plastic line to the left brake line with some bread bag tie wraps until I know exactly where to add the plastic tie wraps. Started on the right side by running the plastic line from the cylinder to where the Adel clamps will be installed. Want to make sure the routing works ok before I start fighting with clamps on this side.
