Her is my version with materials supplied by TS Flightlines. Old style flow divider bracket. Makes for a really clean and well supported installation.

That's where mine is. No issues after 1845 Hrs...

What sealant did you use on the pipe threads? It looks black in the picture. Just curious.

Has anyone mounted the red cube like post #12 but without the AS bracket?

Thanks,

Seems a bit risky to me. That's not a lot of mass hanging out there, and it is supported as well from below with the hose to the fuel servo, but if it fails it could spray fuel in that area and start a fire. Not to mention the engine will probably stop. I really like the installation with the bracket.
