Last week I didn’t put up a blog entry because the EAA Employee Flying Club (where the 750 is destined to go) had a cookout, and yours truly volunteered to be the grillmaster for the evening. We did have a couple staffers cut out of the cookout early to work on the 750 to get some things done though. Kudos Matt and Jerry!
It was an absolutely perfect evening for a cookout…
Jim used a sweet little tool to get the hole in the left wing tank cut out. Much slower and safer than a fly-cutter.
I worked on getting the fuel senders installed. The units had already been prepped according to the instructions a few weeks ago, and with the holes cut and cleaned up, it was time to get the EZ Turn out and install.
EZ Turn is just nasty sticky stuff, but it does the job of sealing the threads of the screws. Once the holes in the retainer, gasket, and sender were finally lined up (took me a few iterations for some reason), they were easy to install.
