Short Description:  Fits Fitting Fittings

Removed transducer manifold to install oil and fuel fittings. Confused by reading wrong pages of plans, swapped fuel elbow twice; galled on second removal. Bought replacement, reinstalled in first location... but confused by plans again. Took blueprints down and removed conflicting pages. Fuel fitting will stay where it is. Swapped out straight oil fitting in accessory case for VA-128 45 degree elbow restrictor fitting... with great difficulty. Fitting would not clock correctly; damaged during removal. Replaced with second identical fitting, but not happy with the tightness or angle of the fitting. Did research on straight restrictor fittings; sent email with photos to Van's Builder Support. Took my own straight fitting to St. Pierre to have them install a brass restrictor drilled to the correct .040 size. Van's Builder Support agreed that this was a good course of action.
