Flap rod installation
Is there any reason I should not reverse the bolts holding the upper flap rod bearing to the flap bar weldment?
The plans show the bolt head on the outboard side, but I don't have enough room to install the bolt through the bearing. If I unbolt the weldment and install the upper bearing, I am unable to align and insert the stud on the lower bearing into the flap.
Reversing the bolt allows much easier adjustment of the flap rod length, and there seems to be plenty of clearance to the fuselage side skin. I suppose the nut could more easily hang up on the rudder cable, but I plan to make a small bracket on the baggage cover to keep the two separate.
