    Default Engine install Questions (Help)

    1st question, my engine did not have the two 45deg MS20823-8D fittings installed and were not in my parts kit. (page 7 in the Firewall fwd manual) Mitch sent me two AN822-8D. The picture 001 shows 90deg fittings vs the 45s in Figure 1 (FF1).

    Which is correct? (I think I have the latest manual downloaded) Are AN and MS parts the same?

    2nd, What fitting(s) goes in the top of the gascolator to connect the primer line? I cant find a parts breakout with the part #. The fuselage manual shows everything except the part # for the top piece where the primer line goes. Can someone point me to the correct manual/page or tell me the part #?

    Mitch is in AK so I am hoping someone here could help.

    You'll find the primer line fitting in the FINISH totes. Its two parts: a threaded cap, along with a small - double sided - brass little bit that's compresses between the copper line and the cap.

    Okay, you'll need the 90 degree fittings from Mitch.



    The file is located on Dropbox under "misc" "heat box and strainer installation.pdf"

    Did anyone else need to remove the bolt that is directly behind the one 90deg fitting? I assume it's a 96in# torque to reinstall.
    I now understand why it WAS a 45 edge fitting. Are there any other small changes not in the manual that I should be aware of?

    Thanks again,

    Jake

    Yep. If you look at my photo you'll see that bolt has yellow torque seal were all others are orange torque seal. It's been removed and re torqued.

    What fitting did you use from the gascolator and fuel flow cube? I don't have one that fits and the manual assumes a direct connection to the carb.
    I assume I need to order one. Did I mention I am a first time builder and not a mechanic?

    Thanks again.
