Rudder Pedal Bearing Blocks

The rudder pedal assembly is held in place by three plastic bearing blocks. Two on either end and one in the middle. The two on each end have holes that the rudder pedal welment tubes go in. It took me the longest time to realize that these holes were drilled at a slight angle to match the angle of the longeron where they attach. When I had them on backwards nothing would fit. They bowed the skin out and there was no way I was going to be able to get the edge distance required by the bolt holes. I turned them around and they fit like a glove. Neither the manual or the plans make mention of this angle.

The opinions expressed on construction techniques are my opinions only and should not be confused with proper construction techniques. There is undoubtedly more than one way to build an airplane and some methods that I use may or may not work in any given circumstance. If there is any question please call the kit manufacturer.
