Then I started working on the Exhaust, which went on straight forward for the most part. I had some troubles with the support tubes that slip inside the rubber sleeve and "hang" the exhaust from the engine mount. These are shipped pretty long and need to be trimmed, but I was only able to figure that out after they were mounted.. I also temporarily fit the heater box which in an airplane is simply a box that feeds air over the exhaust to get it hot, then through the orange tube you see there goes into the cabin through the heat selector.
I also worked on both the Mixture control and Throttle control. The throttle control although more work was straight forward and I am really happy with out it turned out. You can see I had to fabricate a completely different mount than what came with the firewall forward kit. The Cold Air Sump I have is quite different than the one vans expects to have on the IO-360.. You can see the one I made is similar, but complete different dimensions than the one supplied by Vans. Primed, painted and installed. The throttle functions quite smoothly.
