I got my PMA7000B today from UPS. I am thrilled to see that it looks new. I see no signs of wear on it at all. I also ordered up a set of Vetterman exhaust. It's the same stuff that Van's has, but Larry was offering a special $150 off Van's pricing for the first 10 people to call. We also talked about engine selection for a while. When I told him I was going with a vertical sump IO-360, he praised me for a good choice. He went with a M1B (horizontal induction) and said he doesn't get as much speed (or MP) out of his -7A than his friend with vertical induction. He is the first person running a horiz sump that has said that. I have heard it from a bunch of guys with the vertical sump, but I just thought they were making it up to justify their decision to cheap out of the horiz sump.


I had to put it on top of the 430 to see how the stack is lookin'. Someone said the older PS Engineering audio panels don't jive with how the Garmin stuff looks. I think it looks just fine.


Next I drilled three 3/4" holes in the F-705 bulkhead and two 3/4" holes in the F-706 bulkhead for conduit.


In order to provide some strain relief for the conduit, I am making up some of these brackets out of the 025 from the floor cutout to pop rivet into the ribs. Sure, I could just use zip-ties, but this looks more elegant in my book, even though I will be the only person that knows about them. I will take the sheet to work one of these days and cut the strips on the sheers there. Much easier to do it with that took than to agonize with the snips.
