Now someone is going to tell me – ‘Ahhh, you shouldn’t have done it that way because – – – – – -!’
What helped a great deal was splitting the copper pipe and inserting a short piece of flexible rubber (or whatever material they use these days), which allows the top section to be swiveled about to allow threading through the various components without having to bend the pipe.
Nothing can be seen and it actually ensures that it doesn’t rub on the oil supply pipe to the right cylinder.
