Just a few minutes ago,

I'm also looking for this photo, out of curiosity. Did that post get pulled?

I see now. Yes the fuel line fitting C.T. (common to) the firewall should be steel per FAR23.1191.

I agree with Dan on that. It also validpates Dan's response. Seems we all have "voluntary nearsightedness" when it comes to certain rules. Still we need to hold each other accountable. I certainly hope that people call me out if they see me doing something goofy. Lord knows I do my share of bone head moves.

We all know that part 23 does not apply to us, but part 61 and 91 do. I am not sure that some of part 23 should not apply, but that's for another thread.

Nothing mysterious at all Sonny - just this thread:

http://www.vansairforce.com/communit...ad.php?t=71953

Where I was poking fun at myself for taking five or six (or more, I may never tell...) tries to make a simple fuel line. Point was that I had an aluminum firewall fitting, which is true, because the steel fitting is on order, and I used the aluminum one for a fit check. The photo was of a work in progress, and I don't mind folks askign when they see somethgin that doesn't look right - that's how we protect one another.

Looks like I'd better get a steel fitting on order too, and change the pick list for that area of the F1 kits. Heck, maybe I should issue a SB for that fitting, and any other firewall penetrations....other kit manufacturers might follow that lead?

Thanks, Dan and Paul, for this bit of 'tuning'.

Carry on!
Mark

Gee, all the bulkhead fittings Van's sent for my firewall were aluminum. I guess I better replace them and somebody better tell Van's to put out a SB.
