Time: 1.5 hrs
Just did a few miscellaneous things today:
- Drilled 6mm holes for radiator
- Added neoprene around edge of radiator mount
- Fixed hinge on rear seat (I had it backwards)
- Filled/sanded some rivets
- Fixed small crack in nose wheel pant
I really need to get the parts from TAF that I order back in December. Once I get those I can finish up a lot of the engine items. I’m also waiting on the oil cooler from California Power Systems.
Added some neoprene to the edge of the radiator mount hole. Also drilled the holes for the M6 bolts.
Cut down some M6 bolts and screwed them into the radiator. The new radiator has rounded ends and the cowling seems to have been updated to fit the new radiator.
I’m wondering how difficult it’s going to be to get the lower cowling off/on with the radiator and oil cooler mounted. There will be a bracket that connects the two and then some camlocs will hold them to the cowling along with the 2 M6 bolt pins (above). It seems like it will be a bit of a challenge to get all the lined up when putting on the cowling.
