- re-tapped the PEEK support pieces to 1/4-20 to match the bottom of the tank, added them with vented socket set screws. These will need to be replaced with brass or aluminum to better match thermal contraction (steel screws likely to crack the PEEK upon cooling)
- Drilled holes (attached, highlighted in orange) in the pump station base in order to utilize the more robust shock absorbers that came with the oil pump.
- Noticed significant flaking of the nuts/bolts when removing the tank lid. Suggested using anit-seize compound on the tank lid bolts but Chris advised against anything lube-like on the system. Just a note to remember to check the integrity of the bolts going forward before tightening the lid to avoid bolt seizing.
