I'd run it by someone with more experience than me (i.e. DAR/EAA tech counselor, Van's) BUT I think you're well within the range of normal deviation of horn position and if you have good range of movement, why fix what's not broken?

If I'm not mistaken, the OP was asking about elevator deflection travel and never said anything about resolving a binding problem, so my (incorrect) assumption was that you were promoting changing the rod end insertion dimension to make changes in elevator travel.....

Correct.
And a lot of my participation here is during a break (lunch or otherwise) from my normal work so I don't always have a lot of time.

The other reason a lot of my responses are short is because it is simply meant as info for the masses (do you know there are 10,000 + lurkers here that read but never post), but lacking the time to explain "why" for every post I make.

I.E., people are free to build, do, and modify how ever they wish, but there are times when things they post can literally change they whole dynamic for our tech support staff for a couple of days when people start calling or e-mailing with the "I saw it on VAF" tag line......
I don't mean to imply that is the case with this thread..... just stating what my motivation is at times.........

Barely in range .. and it's bugging me .. if I could replace that horn effectively I would do it ..

You're right though, should probably let it go, it's the perfectionist in me. This build is definitely helping with my OCD!

Bad on me for not being clear - we all benefit from taking care to be precise. I appreciated your taking time to respond.
