Miscellaneous Chores – 2 hrs

Thursday Nov 24, 2011

Happy Thanksgiving! This morning I was able to get out into the garage early for a couple of hours before the activity started to get ready for our Thanksgiving get-together. I was hoping I could quickly install safety wire on the roll servo motor bolts but it took me five tries to get it good enough to be satisfied with. This one was tricky. It’s still not perfect but I am satisfied it will do the job.

Then I made a little clip to support the Tee in the static line on the F-708 bulkhead. This will keep the T from working it’s way loose from the static line under vibration. I made it from .020 thick Alclad sheet and secured it to the bulkhead with one LP4-3 rivet. The screw and the lock nut came with the Tee in the SafeAir1 kit.

Then I made several more clips to hold the static line to the back of the F-706 bulkhead in route to the ADAHRS unit. Here you can see two of the clips installed with clecos. I will rivet the clips later with flush head rivets on the forward side of the bulkhead. I stopped here because I am uncertain about the routing from here. I will either route it down the center rib with the pitot and AOA lines or I will route it along the nearest J-stringer.

Finally I installed a piece of plastic conduit in the aft fuselage through which I plan to route the electrical wiring to the tail; namely the strobe on the rudder. This view is from the F-706 to the F-707 bulkhead.

This is from the F-708 to F-710 bulkhead.
