This tube should be positioned in this way.
You have to find the right placement

Sorry, instructions on a photo is wrong.
The fuel pump and filters must be mounted in this way.
You can make mistakes. That's why I recommend you also look at the photos of the real engine

The chain is mounted this way: overlap five toothed wheels on each side, then insert the two chains with the wheel and, in the end, only the chain.
All glued or welded with tin. Attached to base with rivets and nuts M1.6.

Hello to all,
Do you know what this mechanism is and how does it work?

Thank you very much

I have reduced the size of the fan clutches.
In some engine compartments they are not in scale, they are better. I will send them
Free for anyone who has purchased the engine compartment details.
Thanks Ivano

Thanks Paul,
I'm glad you like it.
Yesterday I spoke with David Birden, who I thank also in this forum,
which pointed out to me that ventilation covers are still missing.
I will try to achieve them
