Pics of Me Working
Wednesday October 22, 2008
I haven't posted anything here in over a week! Ack! We were back in Berrien Springs this last weekend visiting people, which was absolutely great. Back to work on the plane tonight.
First thing I did was to seal up all of the orifices in the fuel tank and pressurize it with a balloon on the vent line. It looked great until I came back in later in the evening and the balloon had deflated. I'll try again tomorrow night with a spray bottle of soapy water to try and find the leak. My suspicion is it's at the fuel cap or where the balloon attaches to the vent line.
Then, I got back to work on the aileron pushrods. For some peace of mind, I primed all of the blind rivets that are used to attach the pushrods to the rod ends. After those had dried, I pulled those 24 rivets. Next, I'll prime the ends again.
