5 hrs
Finished up a few FWF tasks that had stacked up waiting for parts.
Torque engine mount/firewall bolts. Install cotter pins.
Install oil breather tube.
Install fuel overflow line for overboard venting.
Install 90 degree T fitting for fuel pressure hose installation, install fuel pressure hose hand tight.
Start installing CHT and EGT spade connectors. Burned three of the connectors installing them wrong in the crimpers. They were in backwards, and the resulting crimps failed the wire security test (pull at about 10 lbs to make sure they hold).
