I'm thinking of using aluminum bar stock for the brackets. I will use some scrap aluminum sheet from my empennage kit to make shims that are about 1-1/2 inches wide and 2-1/2 inches long. Then I will use bar stock 1-1/2 inches wide and 3 inches long for the brackets. I drew this out and have more exact measurements written down, of course. A cut on the factory brackets based on Pat's drawing in this thread will let me use 4 rivets to secure the new brackets and shims to the factory brackets. This should be more than stable and strong enough for the flap actuator.

Any thoughts on thickness of the aluminum bar stock to use? Aircraft Spruce (from whom I need to order miscellaneous other things anyhow) has sizes from 1/8" up to 1" thick for 2024T3 material.

Any thoughts as to what you will use to fasten the aluminum angle to the
bracket?

Iím thinking of skipping the angle and using bar stock instead. But basically I will just rivet it together. Iíll take pictures of whatever I do to share here.

I ended up, with Pat's help, coming up with a good solution for the PH Aviation flap motor in an RV-14. I put together instructions with pictures in a PDF that I sent to Pat so future customers should get that with their order. If anyone wants it, you can send me a private message with your e-mail address. The end result is a pretty easy process.
