Section 45 - new oil door hardware
While looking for updates today, I noticed a couple of recent items. One is on page 45-24, using a plastic bushing for the oil door hinges rather than having them rotate on the bolt, due to observed wear in the original design.
I got my oil door done just before this change was made. I'm considering retrofitting, maybe after a year of flying.
It looks like I would only need to buy the TFI-0304-04 plastic bushings and ensure I have a proper stock of the bolts (AN3-4A replaces AN3-4), nuts (MS21042-3 replaces AN310-3), and washers (add NAS1149F0432P). Then drill out the COWL-00005A and COWL-00005B hinge holes to 1/4, if I can get a drill to the holes safely.
Has anyone else looked at this already?
