More spraying and Fuel Pump

Ron did a bunch more spraying last evening. We are down to the last final cross coat of Poly Tone on this wing.

The last pinked tape has been applied !!

Finally, a big hurdle has been completed.  Remember this accessory drive on the back of the engine?

Doug Franklin, a local machinist who spends most of his time helping the local Commemorative Air Force restore their P-63, made the gear to adapt our Titan Fuel pump!

He also made the housing and the gasket.

The gear fits onto the square shaft of the pump.

And the entire thing goes together like this.

Thanks again Doug and to Richard Epton who set me up with Doug.

More soon
