G'Day, Mick,
If you look closely at the drawing (Larco posted), the hole that the jackscrew is supposed to go through in the elevator spar is pre-punched and is in the lower half of the spar. It is possible to build the elevator skeleton using the spars with the hole in the upward half. I made this mistake and thankfully caught it before I riveted on the skins. I had to disassemble the skeletons and re-build them flipping the spars so they would be used in the opposite elevators. That caused the hole to be in the lower side, and the jackscrew goes right through the center. Best regards,
