Rudder Connected

Big night last night – as I finally got around to connecting the rudder. The cables were set in the aircraft some time ago but I had left as I wanted to double check the splicing of the steerable tailwheel.

With the correct number of ferrules in place before swaging I set the rudder pedals in the neutral position and pulled the cable taught through its paxolin running guides.


The operation of it was fairly smooth although I think it could move a little more freely. I suspect its the pedals that are a little tight, although I greased them I think the pinch bolt may be one turn to tight.
