Today’s work included installing the firewall, finishing the fuel system, and getting ready for wiring. Need a spacer to raise the air cleaner assembly up to clear the fuel pump too.

 

Fuel pump is mounted using firewall bolts so that was an easy install.  I will be installing a 90 degree fitting on the output side of the pump.

2019 went down in the books as one it love to forget. Got a new job that has been going very well only to loose hours due to the current mess. I got the time to do it and the remaining parts list was small and cheap so now is the time.

I understand that! I have a bunch of unfinished projects going right now. Just no $ to finish.

Worked on the muffler heatshield using some aluminum sheet scrap I stashed in the garage. It will need cut to fit but that’s no big deal and then will get painted in JD Muffler Black paint.

Been thinking about the air cleaner/fuel pump clearance and decided to experiment with the extra assembly from the 16hp parts motor. A bit of dremel work and I think I have the necessary clearance.

Pics 1 and 2 show as is.

Pics 3 and 4 show the areas I cut marked with a Sharpie

Finally the other pics show the area I opened up.  Easier to notch the base for clearance than make up a spacer.

 

Once I confirm there is ample clearance I will clean up the cut and seal it with some paint.

I have also been thinking about where to mount the external oil cooler. There is room behind the side panel to mount it in the factory Vanguard location but would rather have more air flow over it. Considering mounting it on the left side over one of the vents and behind the hydraulic control handles.. I would need to figure out lines and would rather not notch the panels. Maybe some hard lines that meet up with the hoses next to the engine would work. Hmmm

Edit - sorry the pics are sideways.

Been busy with a new and finally a full time job. The income increase will help stuff at home as the past year without full time work has been rough. Finally ordered a start improvement kit for the 318 and can move forward with wiring. Found the kit on amazon with sealed terminals on the relay and it will be here tomorrow.

Glad life is getting back to 'normal' for you! Looks like a quality product. Haven't needed one for my 316 as yet, but I use it nearly every day!

My practice of doing things right the first time after learning some hard lessons pays off in the end.
