7.8.2 Landing Gear Plumbing.

This entry is part 5 of 39 in the series 07 - Landing Gear

Now that the bulkhead fittings and the dump valve is installed, it’s time to finish up the landing gear hard line plumbing.

The lines from the bulkhead going aft inside the keel.

Between the bulkhead and the dump valve is the nose gear overcenter stop. So the hard lines have to be bent around that.

The lines aft of the dump valve and the T on the other line will be high-pressure flex lines.

Forward of the canard bulkhead, the line will go from the bulkhead fittings to the hydraulic pump.

At Hangar 18, they take the “Working isn’t good enough. It also has to look good and be aesthetically pleasing to the eye.” approach. The way Malcolm ran these lines is almost a work of art.
