Fuel Pump Package support

On a different construction site, the fuel pump package must be somehow mounted to the fuselage. For that, 2 angles are riveted to the floor stiffeners. The baseplate will rest on these angles and be attached by screws and nutplates.

Longitudinal position is determined by the fuel tank lines.

Looking at the big picture. Before the pump package is installed, all provisions for electrical conduits have to be made and the brake lines fitted.

That's where we ran in one of these little hurdles... The idea was to have 2 90° angles on the outflow side of the parking brake valve. But since the outflow fittings are spaced slightly closer, it was no longer possible to thread one fitting past the other... Looks like another one of these small parts oders from spruce ;-)

The base angles riveted in.
