Default wing tank attach bolts/washer/nut

Hi Guys,

I can't find what hardware(bolt, washer(s) nut) to use to secure the fuselage bracket and tank attach angle in the leading edge wing root. Where in the plans(paper or disc) would it show it? Torque?

Default RV8 tank attach bracket

Here's a clip from what I have on Drawing 43 to buy you a bit of time - I'd check with the factory to ensure that it's the same for the -4. You can get the preview plans from Van's on USB key for a few $.

DWG 39.

R6, R7 and R8.

Also page 8-10 of the manual.

I don't think I've seen a torque spec, but not much -- should be able to relatively easily tear our of the slot in case of wing being pulled back in a crash.

Before manufacturing F-463 see http://gikonfuse.blogspot.com/ Thursday, February 15, 2007, F-463 completed and earlier.

Interesting that on the RV-8, F-463 does not attach to lower longeron. Would make it a lot easier and lower bolt/screw will be hidden by straight wing/fuselage fairing.

This previous post was specifically for the -4 -

But the link may not be active - or may be it doesn't work because I'm presently in the UK...

Or this post for a -3 might also help - http://www.vansairforce.com/communit...59&postcount=4
