I am working on putting a Smoke System Helper kit into my RV-14. I figured out how to mount the oil tank (nut plates in baggage floor and seat back brace) and I have two options for the pump (mount on tank or use large adel clamps on the battery angles between the baggage bulkhead and the bell crank). But it is a mystery how best to plumb the rubber hose toward the firewall. I need to figure this out before I rivet the baggage floors into place.
Is there a safe way to use the routing clips in the tunnel? I think only three of the four are necessary for the plane (wire harness left, static hose left, wiring harness and ELT cord share one on right). So there is one spare. But it would vibrate and slice through the rubber hose if I donít protect it somehow.
I could try to route the hose through the lightening holes in the ribs and bulkheads, but to make the turns I would need adel clamps and that would also require drilling holes in the bulkheads, which for all I know could compromise the entire integrity of the airplane.
All thoughts welcome. I am stuck without anything to build and almost out of parts to prime until I figure this out.
