Rudder Cable Problems
Since the brake is supposed to be engaged only after full rudder
deflection, the displacement from full rudder to full brake was
originally accounted for in the rudder cable play. Many of us have
modified the rudder conduit as per the suggestions or Alan and others.
My conduit is glassed completely, from start to finish, thus eliminating
any play. Is it possible that now that we have eliminated much of the
play in the rudder cable, we have increased the force on the cable etc.
Some have suggested a spring. This would solve this part of the problem
(although not the "reverse" deflection problem, the clear heat shrink
sounds like a good solution to that.), but it would probably been easier
to just leave the conduits glassed only at intervals.
