Short Description:  First Inspection and Maintenance

Removed Engine Cowl

Inspect Firewal Foreward Items

Disconnected passenger side throttle. It is sticking and is not needed during phase 1. Will reinstall after phase 1 flyoff is complete

Discovered issue with rudder to nose wheel steering rods through firewall. I was able to manually adjust the sheetmetal for passenger. However, pilot's side was not so easy. I removed both pieces from firewall. Used shears to remove offended material on outer piece, discarded inner piece and fabricated a similar item from baffle material. Reinstall and checked and no binding now.

Torqued head bolts to 17 pound feet. Adjusted valve lash to 0.007.
