Re: REFLECTOR: Brake line

 I originally ran the Nylaflow lines in the oil line duct then had second
thoughts. I don't have much to go by, but the Wicks catalog lists the
operating range as -65 to 150 degrees. An IO360 operates from 120- 245
degrees, and I'd assume the oil going out to the cooler would be
significantly hotter. If nothing else I'd expect the heat to accelerate
embrittlement of the Nylaflow.
  After corresponding with Simon and Jim I went with 5052 Al tubing along
the lower outside corner of the duct and Teflon hose running from the gear
bulkhead down the legs.  -Bill
