Brief Description:  fuel selector / adel clamps on lines / manifold

A good day.

Moved the torque tube, positioned, and drilled a hole for AN3 bolt to hold the adel clamps for the fuel lines right at the point where they exit the torque tube tunnel. LOTS of room for the elevator control to move around in there now!

Removed the pump / checkvalve manifold. Disassembled, applied thread sealant, and reassembled and tightened all connections.

With the lines secure, I could move them to determine routing for them in the area of the manifold assy. I thought the manifold would go farther aft, but it fits well about 1/2" fwd of where I thought it would end up. Not mounting until I receive a new 120 deg fuel line connector; unsure of it's length.

Test-fit the fittings to the fuel selector. Had to remove and use my NPT tap to allow more degrees to tight for the output line which should point to the bow of the plane for line alignment.

Lastly, determined the spot on the console top where the fuel valve should mount. Marked and cut the hole. Had to notch it to allow the lower flange of the valve to fit thru.
