Oil Sump Prototyping Part 2

Spent the first part of the day ordering supplies from ACS which I dont like to do.   It is not the cost of the parts, but the shipping that kills me.    I usually try to order a bunch of stuff at one time to reduce the costs.  Work continues on the new prototype oil sump.   The fuel servo is mounted and positioning is much better than the first oil sump.


The servo is tilted down which helps with angle of the air tube.


The nice feature of this setup is I only have one bell crank for the mixture which actually uses the fuel servo shaft as a support.  I dont have to weld on any additional brackets for the bell crank.   Mounted is a temporary bell crank which will do fine until I get my bearings in to make the permanent one.


This is where the Pmag coils will mount.  I made a weld template so the fabricator which will ensure the hole spacing is exactly right otherwise the coil mounting will have a problem.   Only a few more parts to locate and then I’ll start welding brackets onto the pan.
