FM150 Mixture Fitting Bolt Rub
I'm finding that as my engine droops a bit during its first hours that the bolt at the connector of the mixture cable on the forward end of the FM150 throttle body is rubbing on the lower cowling. I have the bolt in the top of the fitting and the nut on the bottom. I have about 5 thread showing under the MS20142 nut. I don't think I can go to the next size smaller bolt. Open to good ideas. It hasn't rubbed through the cowling but that seems a possibility.
The FM150 to IO390 adapter documents show the bolt (10A) coming from the bottom up, but there isn't enough clearance in my setup to let that happen - I think. Might go and see if I can't get it the other way around.
