Heat Spike

Yesterday, we had our only heat spike of the season, with temps hitting, but thankfully nothing like 2021 and temps of 116! Today will be 107, followed by around 104 tomorrow. Saturday, the highs will drop to a comfy high 80s. So, without air conditioning in the shop, not much progress will be made.


I’m currently working through this rats nest and how I want the new wiring junction atop the firewall to be strung. The firewall top sits up to 1.5″ under the cowl in places, so no wires have to go through the wall. There’s also not much rewiring to be done, as I didn’t have to make many changes.



The remaining floors are about ready to be reinstalled, but I want to make sure everything else is in place before I add them.


Oops. I was 2″ short on my fuel line. I replaced a rubber hose at the fuel pump side, which gave me enough room to attached this valve.

    Looking good Dave. Wiring is always a challenge.
    I sure hope you have a good air conditioner in your shop!

    Thanks Larry. I’ve got most of the wire cleaned up. I should have it complete by tomorrow.

    No air conditioner just yet; I just haven’t gotten around to figuring out what I want to put in the shop (probably a mini split or two?) … But, I do have a garage door in the back and two in the front, so in the morning I use a big fan to blow out the warm air and welcome in some cooler air. The shop is well insulated, so the shop stays comfy until early afternoon (not terribly hot though).
