Oil Cooler Hoses
What is this? Hmm...well...it's my right mag. I'm working on the oil cooler hoses and I needed to install the oil output fitting in the accessory case. The mounting hole for the fitting is between my two mags the prop governor and the oil cooler -- dead center in the middle of a sea of stuff. There was really no way to install it so I pulled the right mag so I could get a wrench on the fitting. I probably spent a total of two hours installing that one fitting.
And I started testing the hose runs. This is the Van's supplied hose and it may very well be the only hose in the FWF kit I end up being able to use. This is actually the return hose. The feed hose (for the above-mentioned fitting) will not work. I need to get a custom one with an integrated 45 degree fitting in order to clear the prop governor cable mounting bracket.
