And other helpful notes
Check that the servo arm
does not stop short of full travel because it is touching the
aft frame work. If it does, use a dremel carbide cutter to make
a notch as shown. After the notch is made, you can see that the
cable operated locking pins can move a bit further forward. This
improves the locking pin engagement.
manufacturing tolerances can lead to slight variances in the end
Trim off the small tabs at
forward end of plastic cockpit tub. This will ensure that the
tub does not slide aft and disengage the retention hooks.
See other addendums
relative to the canopy operation.
Apply Z-42 (blue thread
locker) to the exposed end of these 2 bolts. This precaution
will keep the bolts from backing out of the aluminum fittings as
the canopy is operated open and close.
Do not rely on the servo operated latching mechanism to fully
hold the Canopy down and locked. Always manually push down on
the front of the Canopy Hatch as it lowers to insure that the 2
locking pins are fully engaged.
Inspect the U.A.T. to insure
that there is clearance between the Main Wheel in the up position
and the U.A.T.
It may be necessary to shim the U.A.T. up about 1/4”.
