Rudder cable routing

Post by 8224 » Tue Jun 30, 2020 5:17 am

I need some help! I am in the process of restoring a 1947 140 that I bought as a project. The plane was completely disassembled when I took possession. I have access to the illustrated parts book here on the forum but there is insufficient detail to figure out the routing of the control cables. Is there such a thing as an assembly book for the plane or can someone take a picture of the cables and how they pass through, over, around, or under the gear box? I suspect I will need help when I attempt to rig the trim cables also. Thanks!

Hi Steve,

Have you invested in one of these: ... ce-manual/

For a project like yours I would think it would be a good investment.
