February 2, 2020 – I continued work on securing firewall forward items.
I ran the line for the mechanical fuel pump drain. This will vent through the lower cowl, a short distance from the exhaust.
I secured the Red Cube.
I installed the sniffle valve. Not sure how this is going to work out, though, because of its proximity to the exhaust.
A friend came by and helped me secure the clamp for the oil breather tube.
We also pulled the manifold off the firewall so I could replace a 45-degree fitting with a straight one. Maybe sometime I’ll get smart and put nutplates on this…
