Task: Installed tailwheel, torqued bolts,
installed shoulder harness anchors and rudder cables
I got a little bit of work done during my lunch hour and after
work for a few minutes. I was able to install the tailwheel
and loosely attach the casttle nut. I then inserted the two
AN3 bolts on the swivel assembly in opposite directions and
torqued them down. Then I installed the seatbelt shoulder
harness anchor cables and torqued the anchor plate to the
longerones (but left the cables just snug untill final adjustments
can be made). I also started running the rudder cables from
the tail forward and installed the required snap-bushings.
I stopped just short of F-706 since the interior will get
I also primed the inside of the static ports to prevent any
corrosion. The outside is not primed as it will be prosealed
to the fuselage.
Lastly I rebuilt the F-635 bellcrank. The first one had an
elongated hole for the pitch servo pushrod due to misdrilling
and I wasn't comfortable with that. I felt it may slip at
some point during flight and cause problems down the road
(none safety related).
