A few more minor things done today. There were a few bolts that I wasn’t happy with the sizes, a little too long, a little too short so I ordered some more bolts from Aircraft Spruce. So with the bolts in hand I was able to mount my starter contactor (solenoid), and mount the regulator more securely. I also started on the fuel hose and primer bulb.
There has also been some talk about fuel pumps. I’m inclined to keep it in the factory position as they say they have not had any problems reported to them with this setup.
However, I’m not opposed to mounting it in a more favorable position, which would be above the fitting on the crankcase (follow the clear hose on top of the fuel pump.) I just can’t see a way to do that. Any ideas?
