chapter 23 engine installation
I started out this week thinking I was going to hurry up and put the plane together and weigh it. Life got in the way and I was unable to get everything done so I called Don Chapman and cancelled the Saturday afternoon activity. He came by and said he could not get the scales anyway. So I worked on cleaning the hanger and getting my cowls to fit better. I also figured out a modification to the upper cowl that allows me to take the top cowl off without having to remove the propeller. This was to cut the ears back a little on the top and bottom cowl. I have an enclosed picture. I also started looking at how I was going to make the micro switch for speed brake up and down light fit. I will get it but it is going to be hard.
