Fuel Pump Cooling Shroud Installed
Pictured is the Show Planes cooling shroud installed over the engine driven fuel pump. This should help prevent vapor lock, as a blast tube will be connected to the top neck. There was a small amount of trimming to get the shroud fitted,so be ready. I will safety wire the hex bolts later. Yes, I'm glad I installed this before the engine was mounted... See the Vans FWF plans for the various fittings installed here.
BTW-I'm using a light coat of EZ Turn/Fuel Lube on all fuel line connector threads and TCM approved Loctite 565 thread sealant for all oil line fittings.
