Brief Description: Work line placement in controls tunnel
Not much done, but a lot of tedium.
The issues is that the torque tube and elevstor control rod reside in the center console tunnel leading to the baggage compartment. This assembly rotates sided to side and foreward and aft in order to control the plane.
Unfortunately, the center tunnel is also a great place to put fuel lines, brake lines, pitot-static, etc. This invlves a lot of trial and error in the placement of adel clamps to a) secure the lines and b) keep them out of harms way.
This task resulted in initial placement, removal to perhaps put one set of lines on top of the other, etc. For the most part, the forward section of the tunnel where there is most chance for interference is pretty well completed. I still have to fasten lines so they don't vibrate and abrade in the aft part of the tunnel. I will also need to put some wire loom around several of the items to keep them from abrading on one another. Plus, I ran out of clamps!
