    Nice, is that the stainless or nickel leading edge?

    AIN'T THAT THE TRUTH!!

    From my calculations I'll have this overhaul and upgrade paid for about the time its all due again

    Been busy the last few days, last parts finally trickled in. Started assembling.
    But before I got too carried away I realized I needed to install the longer flange bushings for the wood prop. Using a ball fou t press tool and threading a bolt into the bushings I was able to push the old ones out and the new ones in. I was careful to put the oddsized one in the correct hole.
    Threw everything into the case (exactly as the manual states, i.e. marking the front bearing to insure it is in proper) and stuck the case flange bolts in to hold it together.
    Earlier someone commented on painting the cylinder base nuts. Here is how I remedied the paint film thickness that the manual talks about, I sanded the bottom of the nuts where they come in contact with the banana plates.
    Then made some .010" shims from a soda can to place between the base plates and cylinders, and taped them in place. Did the initial torque then removed them before the final pass.
    Afterwards I safetied the nuts and out a light coat of paint to cover up the chips and scratches in the paint from assembly.20180713_174739.jpg20180713_202342.jpg20180713_205638.jpg20180714_085836.jpg20180714_091208.jpg20180714_113026.jpg20180714_183324.jpg

    Looking good. You really don't need to safety wire the cylinder base nuts. Lycoming did away with it many years ago. Looks good, I be the bottom nuts were not fun.
