Baffles:   pg 1   |  pg 2  |  pg 3  |  pg 4


The baffles were tremendously confusing, even with the plans and baffles kit.  These pictures show everything roughly fit and installed temporarily.  Getting the baffles "right" is very much a trial and error process and I don't think there is really a right or wrong way to handle a lot of the little challenges you encounter in fitting the baffles - just as long as in the end they can get the job done in separating the high and low pressure areas under the cowling.


I used the baffles mounted oil cooler approach.  This picture here shows the left side of the baffles before the oil cooler is fit and the hole cut:
