Getting back to the firewall forward, I made the final connection to the fuel distributor including the fire sleeve.

Of course, the fuel line is protected with fire sleeve all the way down to the mechanical fuel pump.

As I was getting ready to do the final connection of the fuel line to the gascolator, I realized that that the bottom of the gascolator was too close to the lip created where the fuselage and the firewall mate.  A phenol block behind the mount will set the gascolator out far enough to clear.

The final connection of the gascolator into the fuel system including fire sleeve.  Actually, in this picture the line running to the mechanical pump isn't attached yet, but it will also get fire sleeve, so use your imagination.
