Dad continued with the nose gear bushing mod - tapped the large AL shoulders for #10 screws.
Finished result - now the main bolt can be tightened / worked on without affecting the bearing seals / bush rotation.
I finally finished making to tapered AL bushes of the right size - attempts #6 and #7! These went in and were pulled down neatly into the FloScan sensor.
More plate modification and this is the final result - very tight but hopefully will provide enough spacing for the 'joggle' on the downstream fuel line.
As a misc item to finish the day - the floor pans needed a drilling / nutplate added - another thing off the hit list.
