Onex Rudder Cable Questions

Postby John Usher » Thu Jun 29, 2017 9:49 pm

While installing/rigging my rudder cables, I noticed part of each cable is covered with a movable plastic tubing. What area of the fuselage is this intended or does it matter? i.e.: Cockpit area, aft fuselage where cable exits to rudder horn, etc. Also, as per plans page ONX-T01, view J-J, I'm getting the 161 degrees rudder movement to the left but not the 211 to the right. I'm only getting 205. Someone please tell me this is acceptable so as to quell my OCD! LOL! If not, your suggestions on a solution would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

John, I split my cable cover putting some ahead of the cockpit pulley to protect against the vertical angle there and the balance after the pulley to cover the spar and vertical angles.

in my Sonex the covered portion is used to prevent chafing of the side wall upholstery by the rudder cables, and where the cables could be pushed against the vertical angles in the cockpit.
