Carb/Air filter clearance
(I am building an RV-6A. I have an O-360 out of a Mooney with 60 hours on it installed. Unfortunately, the air filter box is contacting the nose gear. There are many variables that can cause this, so I am wondering if ....
- The oil sump is deeper than normal for an RV? How deep is the normal sump?
- The Carb is taller than another standard configuration (6.5 inches from oil sump to base of carb)
- Other ideas?
Also, the engine is offset to the left about an inch, but I understand this may be normal.
Is there a shorter carb option? Smaller air filter?
The air filter box actually contacts the nose strut. I have not installed it yet.
