Jim,

It looks like you have three AN470AD3-3.5 rivets in a row. Looking at Figure 8, it seems like the one closest to the spar should be an LP4-3. But maybe I'm reading the drawing wrong.

It might sound silly, but have you assembled HS-01231A and B the right way around? See fig 6, B is inside A. If you somehow mangaged to get them the other way around you would be about the material thickness of one or t'other out of alignment on HS-01231C.

Default Hey Rob - -

Can you take another pic with the plate as in first pic, but much further away from it. Need to see the entire H S if possible. Thanks.

Hi Everyone,

I spoke to Van's Support this morning and they asked for this picture as well.

From this picture you can see that the holes in the Spar and Skin do not align to the holes in the gusset.

Have you tried a different gusset?

Yes all four align with the same problem. I am really thinking that Van's changed something. I'm waiting for them to call me after they investigate. My kit was shipped in September with the correction to the service bulletin for the Horizontal Stabilator and it seems to me that the prepunched holes from my Skin and Spar Cap/Spar Box were done in May based on the sticker dates.

Default Mystery Solved

The SB part is HS-01231C for the gussets, the part that should be shipped with new kits is HS-01231C-1. They shipped me the wrong parts, but are now shipping me replacements. :-) Glad I am not crazy.

Rob

Just another note : It appears in the last pics you posted, you have the H S upside down. The plates go on top of the H S. Double check that please.

I do have it currently on the bottom side of the HS. My instructions imply that you have four of the gussets, one for top left, one for top right, one for bottom left, one for bottom right. There are matching holes in the spar top and bottom and skin top and bottom.

Am I reading it wrong?
