Several comments were made concerning the difficulty of inserting the spacing washers during the stabilizer install.

Ref: SB-18-02-02
Step 4: Taking note of the washers used between the Hinge Brackets and pivot Bearings for reuse later, disconnect the Stabilator Assembly from the Tailcone Assembly as shown in KAI Page 10-05 and KAI Page 11-03.

Refer to the KAI references above, it will instruct you during the assembly process to bond the washers to the inside of the bracket assemblies. This will facilitate an easier stabilizer install. Then all you have to mess with is aligning each bracket assembly with its respective bearing then insert the hinge bolts.

I'll be installing the stab tomorrow.. Just hope I don't have to mess with the turnbuckles.

Default HS Brackets & Nutplate

In Step 19 of the SB it says to rivet a K1000-4 nutplate to the HS-1231A & HS-1231B hinge bracket using two AN426AD3-4 rivets. It doesn't say to countersink the HS-1231A first for the rivet head. Is that an oversight? Thanks.

Might just be implied.

I agree Kevin, I think it's just implied based on the AN426 rivet callout.
