    Normally when properly rigged the fin will point to left about 2“ when sighting down the fin to the top of fuselage.
    The procedure to move the fin: hold the tailpost and bump the leading edge of the fin with your hand. Fly and repeat if necessary.
    Do what Wag-builder suggests and the Rigging CD. An abbreviated rigging procedure is also in the Piper Service Letters.

    Do you have a nose wheel fairing? Since the nose wheel is directly connected to the rudder, a nose fairing not rigged correctly could also cause this.

    Rod ends on the nose gear allow it to be adjusted as well.

    Mine doesn’t go full right, but if I go hands/feet off it starts drifting/rolling right. Nothing has been damaged or repaired. when I first bought the plane it flew hands off. Could I have done something to cause it or just needs adjusted sometimes? Guess I need to order the books..
