    Default stringer mounting standoffs-

    on my pa-22 --- looks like some of the those steel standoffs that hold the aluminum stringers are missing----
    Anyone know how to determine what length they should be ?
    They do not appear to be the same between left and right sides --- (whouldnt ya thought they would have been ?)

    could the lengths be in the piper CD ?

    Any thought appreciated !

    I shortened mine and made them the same. It was done to offset torque during climb out. I noticed no difference.

    Piper drawings should provide the information you want.

    Can you post a picture of the missing ones. The dimension should be in the drawings. I have several frames sitting around I can measure as well.
