I don't have any photos, but I can answer question #1 as to the what I
did. The rest
should be easy.
1. The dump valve is on the pilot's side. The sequence valve
the damper. I have no speed brake. I have no pressure guage.
2. There is only a very small area where the three bulkhead
fitting can go.
A. Below the 1/4" plate.
B. Between the nose door linkage and springs and not to
close to the nose strut opening.
C. I have the fitting for the sequence on the pilot's side,
down low with
with just enough room to get to with a wrench. It goes to
the TEE on
the top of the nose door cylinder, then to the out board
side of the pump.
D. The inboard pump fitting goes on to the lower bulkhead
fitting on the
E. The lower nose door cylinder fitting goes to upper
bulkhead fitting on
the on the co-pilot's side. It is as high as possible to
spring and 1/4" plate.
