As I prepare to put the engine on for what will hopefully be the last time before we fly, I took advantage of the easy access of having it on the lift to finish up a few jobs.
One was to install the oil line that will run from the prop governor to the fitting on the front of the engine, just behind the prop.
I had planned to make this line at one point, but after spending some time with this one, I think buying it premade was a better idea. The line was available for around $120 plus shipping, but I was fortunate enough to find this one from another builder who was converting an engine back to fixed pitch. I offered him $100, and I think he thought I was crazy to want to pay that much for it. It was a little bit tricky to install, and I had to cut a hole in the front right baffle to make room for the line
I also filled the brakes with 5606 hydraulic fluid, and started making a coax-based glideslope antenna.
