Desser Tire Order
Tues 4 -1.0 hr- Finished bucking some rivets in the upper fwd fuse
Wed 5 -1.25 hrs- Cut cowl attach hinges to length.
Sat 8 -4.25 hrs- Drilled, deburred, countersunk, prepped, and painted the hinges.
I painted the hinges with a high temp engine paint.
Put tubes in tires using tire talc.
Mounted tires on wheels.
Sun 9 -4.75 hrs- Prepped, primed, and painted nose fork and main wheel fairing brackets.
Riveted cowl attach hinges in place.
Installed Firewall Heatshield.
Started looking at installing engine mount.
The MATCO stuff was a bit confusing so put together a step by step on how to assemble everything.
Step 1: Install bearings in wheels. If final install be sure pack bearing with grease. I used an automotive bearing grease that operates to -40F and some ridiculously hot temperature.
Step 2: The collar is in place.
Step 3: U-1003 with bolts as shown in plans.
Step 4: Place MATCO assembly on bolts.
Step 5: Slide spacers into place. As I have in the past I just ordered some spacers off Mcmaster Carr instead of trying to cut three spacers the same length. These are more exact and therefore will handle the loads better.
Step 6: Place the U-1010 Bracket and bolt into place.
NOTE: my bracket required some clearance trimming.
Also note that the hydraulic fitting will be very close to the bracket.
