    Default Boot Cowl Tinnerman Fitting

    With reference to fitting the Tinnerman nuts to the Boot Cowl Hatch, the Figure FS49 (12/15/2015) and video specifies the use of 6 Tinnerman nuts (HDW-A1784-6Z-1), of which I have been supplied 3. It is obvious that after match drilling the initial #30 holes in the Boot Cowl Hatch, then outsizing to .25" , these Tinnerman nuts still do not fit in all cases.
    Has there been a manual revision to use alternate (HDW-SL213-06-1) Clip On Nuts? Alternatively, where else might these Clip On Nuts be otherwise used?

    Go to Chuck and Ryan's Tips and read Post#6 about the Tinnerman nuts. I ordered these from Wick's and they worked great.

    Mitch will ship you a couple as well or you can just use your nibbler and take a little metal away so they will fit fine.

    Got it , glad I am not the only one to encounter this....
    6. The gascolator cover went together just fine until we went to place the six Tinnerman nuts. None fit. On Mitch’s award winning video the Tinnerman nuts referenced were part number A1785-6Z-1D. Those are also shown in the pictures in the manual, although the manual references part number A1784-6Z-1 which is what came with the kit. So we called Wick’s and spent three bucks for the longer A1785-6Z-1D nuts, which worked just fine. Alternatively one could notch out the panel a bit so the supplied nuts would fit.
