Engine mount, engine prep

5.5hrs.  Cleaned up some over-spray that was on the firewall while it was easily accessible, and re-hung the engine mount torquing all bolts to spec.

Installed a cover plate for the hole left by the prop governor after removing it.  I found it ready made from Vans aircraft, so that saved some fabrication time.  Installed it with a fresh gasket and some hylomar blue.

Installed and torqued some AN fittings on the fuel pump, using some ez-turn fuel lube for the pipe threads.  Then spent the rest of the time checking the torque and installing safety wire on all items of the engine that would be facing the firewall while I had easy access.
