The recent post shows the assembly and also plans behind it - yet the plans I have, and also the plans on the vans site (amendments) donít show the assembly. Are these old plans and this assembly is no longer needed? (Seems like a better solution than locknuts and future rudder fairing surgery).
Surprising they don't have a spacer under that plate. I made two spacers with good area and tested for reaching the specified torque, it would not torque with standard washers for me. I also used a bed of proseal for good measure. It is a 7 but uses the same weight.
Off topic: I cast some lead weights and found that with a cold mold the lead would pillow like these. If the mold was preheated, the parts were smooth like the mold.
