Brief Description:  Temp Install of Fuel Servo and Exhaust

I am getting hose length measurements for the engine hoses and I needed to get information on the fuel servo and Red Cube. After several conversations with Tom at Flightlines, Don at Performance, and Dave at Electronics International, and Bryan at Showplanes, I was able to come up with information and a plan for the servo and cube.

So per Don....I needed to turn the fuel servo 90 degrees to the right which put the mixture lever on the bottom and the connection of the servo on the right side of the engine. The throttle lever needs to be removed and attached to the other side of the shaft which Don made possible in his design where the lever can be attached to either side. The issue is that a spacer "should be" placed in the position where the lever was to keep everything as needed. So I ordered a spacer.

It also requires a different bracket for the throttle and mixture cables.....which I ordered from Showplanes. Dave at EI discourages hard mounting the Red Cube so that now has helped me to make the decision to mount it at the bottom near the servo which will dictate the fuel lines needed.

So I installed the fuel servo after changing the throttle lever and also installed the exhaust to get the info needed on the throttle/misture brackets. Finally I installed the bracket I made to support the starter cable to finish the session.

I did not include the time it took for all the calls in the log.
