    NotCook it depends on whether you have a twin engine or not, on my twin I had to look closely at the threads to determine the proper direction, then I wrote it on the hull....lol

    When you are disassembling the packing house it isn't nice and pretty as the picture. What is the easiest way to glean all the green stuff off the glands and housing?

    Brass or stainless brush, dental picks, emery cloth... anything that will help get in the groves and such to clean up.

    To keep it looking good spray it with Boeshield T-9 It's made by Boeing Aircraft, that's what they use on all there parts and electrical.
