I worked on the fuel system today. I am trying to get that done so I'll know where I can run wires through the floor cover. There are a lot fittings that get added to the system when one decides to go with an AFP fuel injection system. I actually enjoyed running the tubing. Now if I can just figure out how and where to mount the flow transducer.
I built a little bracket for mounting the FlowScan fuel flow transducer to the floor in front of the fuel pump and filter assembly. I also worked a little bit more on fuel tubing. I also put the exhaust back on temporarily so that I will be able to check some clearances tomorrow.
Worked on the wiring a little more. I got most of the SD-8 alternator wiring done. Put in the small wire that goes to the alternator and spent some time securing wire with Adel clamps.
