Disassembly 7/30/2000

  • The fuel selector panel is bolted and Adel-clamped in an ad-hoc way, but not too bad.  Probably should have a locking control cable.
  • The control cable itself was not well secured to the firewall or forward bulkheads, and could move  around at the engine-end.
  • Throttle quadrant bolts to brackets on the frame at top and bottom, and one screw directly into the tubing at the forward end in the middle of the throttle cover plate.  Throttle level placard painted over - should be restored.
  • Fuel selector panel may have been modified from original - should be researched.  Has positions and drive shaft for wing tanks as well as main tank.  Select tube for second valve installed but not hooked up at either end of shaft.  Selector shafts cannot be removed with dropping engine.
  • Fuel selector panel bolted to frame, and positions for wing tanks taped over.
