I finally had the Andair fuel valve and all the plumbing done!

I had to smack my head after I discovered the inlets on the Andair fuel valve can be pointed downward instead of clocking sideway as packaged from the factory. I had a lot of problems bending the fuel tubing with the factory sideway clocking. After I pointed them downward, fitting the fuel line was a breeze, taking only 1/2 day versus a few days of sweating and swearing.

After I buttoned everything up, the handmade 0.064" doubler support plate was tight as it was fastened with all the screws from the cover plate.

I feel like I am making good progress. Next item

Won't be much of a challenge. I'm moving the valve aft so that that a single 90 degree bend coming off the left tank EF20 is all that's required. The line should line up with the center of the hole.
