Thanks, Eric, I know. To get the axle mounting holes for the wheel pants horizontal, I had to swap sides from the way the factory had the caliper set up. Fortunately, as you point out, the bleed screws can be reversed.

Default Can't put this piece on a shelf

I'm deep into the tailcone. This is a fun chapter. Thank you Van's for the excellently prepared wiring harnesses!

I know, I had the same situation
Otherwise, what fitting did you install on the bottom of the fuselage to connect to upper end of brake hose ?
The AN816-2D don't match with the fairings. So I'll order AN823-2D. They'll fit better the gear legs.

I had planned to use AN816-3D, but I haven't installed them, yet. Thanks for the tip about the AN823-2D. I'll see what fits best.

You are right, it seems to be 3D.
The straight fitting and hose interfere with fairings. i think an angle fitting is better.
