Engine Mount and Pitot Tube Installed
The new year started with good progress on the Zenith. A big milestone was achieved by bolting the motor mount to the firewall.
The pitot tube was also on our list for installing.
Tom started the installation of the pitot tube by step drilling a large hole.
Drilling holes for the pitot tube.
Jim worked on some access holes for running various wiring and controls.
Jerry continued to work on the door latch mechanisms. They now operate smoothly.
The first step to fitting the motor mount was to grind off some of the steel feet to allow the motor mount to rest against the firewall.
Here is a good hint to file away. We used a ratchet strap looped through the cockpit and around the motor mount to hold the mount in place while we adjusted it.
