    Default Clipper Aileron cable through cabin area question.

    I can't find any good drawings in the PA16 CD. The aileron cable that runs through the cabin is rubbing on the diagonal tube just above the rear window on BOTH Sides. I see the place where the trim strip attaches to but I don't see an area for a fair lead if there's supposed to be one, as there's no drawings for that area. The cable rubs slightly on both sides but I know it's not correct.



    Does anyone know how it's supposed to go? I just installed the wings and have the rigging correct, today I installed the ailerons and found this issue.

    You probably need the fair leads at the rear spar to fuselage attach.

    Thanks Steve that's exactly what I need that I don't have. Are those in the plans so I could make my own or know
    where I could find a set? Do the Pacers and Tripacers use those too, if so maybe I could find a set used?

    Thanks!

    I have not seen them available anywhere. Comonly misplaced from what I have seen over the years. I made these. It is the width of the nylon fairlead, have to measure the length.

    Thanks, I guess I could make my own. I guess my project either never had them or mine were lost but not sure how as everything was put in a box.

    I have two two odd looking tabs that I don't know where they go, could the stock faileads look different?

    Going to the hangar and double check, but I look forward to your measurements!

    I sent you a PM but never heard back. Found my jig to make the part today.
