Flying a Vans RV-10.

Engine Baffles

Started the engine baffles. Got them to the point where I should fit the cowling before proceeding.

The rear baffles were a pain to get in and fitted. Eventually got there with some help from other builders. For the #6 cylinder back side make sure the oil cooler box piece is not on the part when fitting. It allows the baffle to flex more when inserting. On the #5 cylinder back side I had to unhook the oil return tube. It also had issues around the back attach bracket. It had to be modded a bit in order to fit before hitting the case.

Baffle Work

I also put some dehydrators plugs in the top plugs to keep the moisture out until closer to first start.
