Installed prop governor, fuel flow sensor, and sniffle valve

Installed the prop governor. I wasn’t sure what hardware to use. The plans said to refer to the engine/governor installation instructions. The Hartzell instructions said to refer to the engine manufacturer’s instructions. The Lycoming instructions that came with the engine were mute on the topic. I was able to find an illustrated parts catalogue for the engine on Lycoming’s web site. It showed a washer, a star washer and a plain nut. Now I need to figure out where Lycoming keeps its torque values.

I installed the fuel flow sensor and the fuel lines from the fuel pump and to the fuel injection servo.

I installed the sniffle valve. This seemed like it was going to be straightforward. Remove the plug; install the valve. What I didn’t take into account was that the intake manifold was full of preservative oil. So now my nose gear and tire are well lubricated and in no danger of corroding.
