I also decided to deviate from the plans a bit by making the electrical ducts in place on the fuselage sides, rather than flat on the worktable. You can see the tape covered urethane male molds for the electrical ducts taped in place on the fuselage sides, as well as the raw plywood bearing blocks glued in place prior to glassing.
After trimming the glassed bearing blocks, I reinstalled the torque tubes and floxed the bronze bushings in place in the firewall. I also floxed the electrical ducts in place, and then routed the rudder cable conduit from the instrument panel through to the firewall on top of the ducts. I floxed and glassed the rudder cable conduit in place with 1 BID spaced every 6 inches or so.
I cut the tubing and bent the sheet metal for the wing pushrod assemblies. I installed everything like so:
It did not, however, completely clear up the hysteresis - I still have a bit of it. Oh, well. People tell me that many EZ's have this characteristic and that it does not pose a problem. I'll see.
