This is the oil cooler installed in its supporting box. The blue stuff is tape to keep debris out of the oil passages and the orange is RTV. Having completed this subassembly, I will have to stop work for 2 weeks to go to work (ugh.) When I return, it’s time to start the (dry) fiberglass work and sand the cowling and get it assembled / installed. I will then return to this chapter and sand / install the fiberglass cooling shroud that will serve as the mount point for this cooler.
