Cranking it up!

These two pictures show the Firewall/Engine mounted Bellcranks that will control the Throttle and the Mixture controls in Big Toot.  They are also connected to the front and rear cockpits so both Pilot and Passenger can operated the engine controls.

These run under the engine and work both the mixture and the throttle.  They work very well with no slop!

I had to get these finished so the airplane can got to the Exhaust Pipe shop to have the six cylinder exhaust pipes constructed.
Boy, will they be pretty!
