Engine Controls

I ordered custom length controls from ACS that were a couple of inches longer then the standard ones.
Prop - Blue Vernier - 74.5 inches, 2.5 inch stroke
Mixture - Red Vernier- 53.5 inches, 2.5 inch stroke
Prop - Black Friction Lock - 50.5, 2.5 inch stroke

They all fit perfectly.  Would not change anything on the length.

Black cables coming out of firewall are control cables, at this point the throttle had not been installed.  Cables in upper right are for butterfly valve in oil-cooler air tube and alternate air door on FAB.

Mixture

Cable install only took a couple hours, and most of that was fighting with the couple of Adel clamps.  After fighting with one for 1 hr, I purchased the Adel clamp pliers, I would not do an engine install without them.  They are well worth the $20-30 in time and frustration savings.
