Flying a Vans RV-10.

Engine Mount Service Bulletin

Performed the Vans Service Bulletin SB 14-8-29 for the engine mount elastomer plate.

First thing was to bea able to keep the nose lifted during the process. Used a cable puller attached to the tail tie-down and an eye bolt in the hangar floor. Pic shows ratchet straps for testing, but I use the cable puller.

Tail Hook

With the cable puller holding the tail down, a sawhorse and blocks provide a little safety for when I was underneath it all. The whole process was pretty painless except for the need to get the elastomers compressed enough to get the bolt out and reinserted. Accomplished it by using the cable puller attached under the engine and to the eye bolt in the floor.
