Cracked Manifold Bracket


One flaw I noticed was that the bracket on which the fuel distribution manifold is mounted is cracked.  You can just see the crack in the bent angle of the bracket.  I will have to have this rewelded before the engine goes in.  It really wasn’t evident until the manifold was removed, so I can’t really get down on Eagle for this.  I will truck the engine over to my airplane mechanics to be repaired before starting re-assembly.
