Pack 8 - Stage 58. Left velocity stacks

Recommended Posts

  • Administrator

Pack 58 gives us the left velocity stacks.  Assembly is similar, but not identical to stage 57.


Clip the injectors from the sprue with sprue cutters.


Push these into the velocity stack plate.


Cut the fuel tube into the lengths specified in the instructions.  I.e.  45mm, 55mm, 65mm, 85mm, 100mm & 115mm.

Feed these through the velocity stack plate and push them onto the injectors.


Put the velocity stack plate loosely in place and then clip the first 3 fuel pipes to the clips on the fan housing.  P6290083.thumb.JPG.745bec525ba5166fd8c45db578b5b131.JPG

Repeat with the remaining 3 fuel pipes, making sure that all the fuel pipes are routed right way past the velocity stacks and plug leads.  Then push them onto the pins on the fuel injection pumps.


Lower the velocity stack plate into position, being careful not to trap the fuel pipes or plug leads.  


Push the velocity stack covers in place.


Then fit the velocity stack necks.  I needed to use a little super glue to make sure they stayed in place.  The friction fit wasn't really confidence inspiring!


This completes the stage.
