Spent time finalilzing placement of the gascolator. Pic 1 shows just the top part of gascolator so I could check spacing. Disassembled gascolator, applied thread sealant, then installed fuel line barb fittings in their final position.
Measured and cut the 2.25" hole in the floor, then filed notches to accomodate the gascolator bowl bails. Had my helper hold the gascolator in place, crawled underneath, and ensured I could remove the fuel bowl for cleaning.
Removed and drilled rivet holes in the gascolator mounting tangs.
Cleaned FOD from the general work area; didn't want anything infiltrating inlet lines!
