Fuel pump housing, day 3

Category: Forward Fuselage — Steffen @ 21:43 — Hours: 4

Managed to get a few hours in today. First a made a new fuel valve plate, as I wasn’t quite satisfied with the fit.

Luckily a had a piece of .063 sheet in stock…

Then I countersunk the holes for the screws that will attach the fuel valve.

The plans call for standard AN bolt here, but I have planned to use countersunk screws instead, so my cool upgrade can lie flush on the plate.

Finally I spent a couple of hours deburring these parts. Almost ready for a priming session.
