I saw Joe's tanks up close and personal. Looks very nice, and he can access the tail cone without removing the tank.

Well done Joe.

Learned at first annual:
Put silicone on your static lines where they connect to fuse pins so they don't slip off the pins.
Put some ceramic cloth over the oil line where it crosses the exhaust pipe on right side to eliminate heat distortion of fireshield at the Adel clamp supporting the oil line.
Add a 1/2" spacer between the nose gear leg and adel clamp to move the coolent line away from the gascolator to eliminate heat transfer to the gascolator bowl.
Suggest using two wireways instead of one to minimize the wire pileup over the rudder/brake pedal bars.

I like your seatback fuel tank mod. I'm curious if there is enough room now to stow 2 of those foldup bikes in there?

Need more info

I can not answer that without knowing how big the bikes are. Are the bikes small enough to fit between the roll bar and the horizontal cross bar behind the seat? What are the bike dimensions?

If you had a fine Brompton folding bike, its folded size is 24 x 24 x11 and it weighs about 28 pounds, it should fit. They are a good ride but are not cheap as they are very well built in London.

remote oil sensor questions
 
HI John,

Your message box is full so I've got to ask these here.

I'm planning to move the sensor to the firewall at the first Annual this fall. I think I have the answers already to a couple of questions but want to make sure. If I keep the Honeywell sensor and move that to the firewall it looks like you just bundled up the extra wire?

And it also looks like you somehow used a double Adel clamp to mount the sensor on top of the fuel pressure sensor?

Final question-- where does the restrictor go-- at the engine end of the line or at the sensor end-- may see that when I look at the parts.

If possible, please reply to wmoyer@woh.rr.com-- I can't remember to check messages on VAF

THANKS
