Today I had the whole day to work on the plane. The Financee as I like to call her is off to California for 2 weeks for work so it was time to get crackin on getting the engine off the plane and cutting out the not needed cross members on the engine mount. After loads of hassle getting the oil cooler oil out and getting all the hoses and wires disconnected from the engine. I was able to get the mount bolts for the engine free and released the engine from the mount. This is always a pain in the ass no matter how many times I have done it. Anyhow I pulled the mount and started cutting and grinding away at the joints where the cross members used to be. All in all a productive day.
Time spent today 7.5 hours. Time spend on the mod 25.5 hours
