Thread the AN316-6 jam nuts onto the MD3614M rod end bearings and thread the rod end earings into the R-1002 Rudder Spar. Measure from the center of the pivot bolt hole to the forward face of the rudder spar.
Bolt the rudder to the vertical stabilizer using only the top and bottom hinge hardware. Check for travel and adjust as required. Finally, adjust the center rod end until a bolt can be slipped into place. The rudder should swing freely.
Check to see that the rudder travels 35°. Do this by fixing the elevators in the "trail" position, taping the trim tabs in the neutral position, and then fully deflecting the rudder.
Measure the clearance between the inboard trailing edge of the trim tab and the adjacent rudder skin. When this dimension is approximately 2 3/16 inches the rudder travel is 35° and the R-1007B Rudder Stop is properly adjusted. The rudder stops were designed to allow 35°of travel so a very small if any adjustment should be necessary. If more travel is needed file the rudder stops if/as required. If there is too much travel shorten the bottom rod end. Tighten the jam nuts when the adjustments are complete.
Using the rudder stop from Craig Vincent, the travel was only about 25 degrees. I will have to modify the rudder stop at a later date to accomodate 10 degrees more of travel.
