I have noticed with each annual that the anti-seize slowly accumulates in the spark plug threads on the cylinders. I bought this thread chaser to attempt to clear it out. I didn't dare use any more than the slightest amount of force using it as I didn't want to chance cross threading the cylinders. It worked great, and allowed my plugs to be installed as smoothly as the day I first put the plugs in.


I was able to install the fuel filter today. I needed to make slight bends in the fuel line, especially reform the already sharp bend. In order to not kink the line, I used my hand seamers to prevent this from happening by slightly putting a small amount of force at the apex of the bend. When a kink occurs, the tubing deforms in the tangential plane to the bend - putting the seamers here prevented a kink from being able to form, and I was able to slightly modify the tube routing.


My aileron trim has been screwed up for a while, with a "heavy" left wing. I think it was just me never adjusting the trim spring right. It's sort of tough to do, but now deflections either way arrive somewhat neutral. Way more neutral than before (the left aileron would be fully deflected up when the stick was moved to the left).
