Could someone enlighten me as to where these plates go?
I have two per side but don’t know where they came from. I imagine they might be used on the bottom hinge box as that is the hardest to get to, but would like to be certain. It was such a drama getting the bolts out of the hinge boxes that I completely missed noting where these took the place of regular nuts.
In the same area but a totally different topic (was going to start a new thread but couldn’t think what to call it), can anyone confirm that the laws of physics don’t apply in the hinge box area?
I removed the front wing and now as I reassemble I find the bolt holes for the top hinge box on the front ( cowl ) side don’t line up. They need to come up about 10 mm.
It’s really hard to get a photo to show what I mean. The blue marking pen circles are where the holes need to be.
I have no explanation for this A couple of mm I could understand, but 10, that’s nearly a half inch… And it’s doing my head in. I can’t see how the hinge panel has moved relative to the cowl.
I can move the holes easily enough but I would really like to know how this has happened.
I don’t expect anyone can answer this, I’m just venting here.
While I’m having a whinge, is it just me or do other ipad users find it difficult to post on this forum?
I’m no computer whizz so it’s probably just me.
All the best
