1  Vans RV Discussion / Vans RV Construction / Horizontal stabiliser cracks
 on: 16.02.2019 at 16:31:29 
Started by Andrew_Garner | Post by Andrew_Garner
Calling all owners of RV-6/6a, 7/7a, 8/a.  
Have any of you ever seen or heard, of the horizontal stabiliser cracking that SB 14-01-31 rectifies..?  
I'm in the process of finalising an RV8 that has been under construction for many years an the SB has not been done. With the HS fully completed and the workmanship (not mine) being of a very high standard, the issue is do I want to pull it apart to do the SB or just check for cracking each year and then complete the SB if a crack should appear..?
So, if you have any experience with this I would appreciate hearing from you. If you can recall the approximate hours when it was first noticed that would also be great info.  
Many thanks,

I am trying to find a supplier for the piano wire used on the top cowling. The wire size is 2.25mm or .090 inches. This is outside the normal SWG sizes that are easily available. I had a friend confirm that this is the size supplied by Vans in their kits.

Hi Phil
I'm also just about to start an RV12 and have been asking around the same questions.
There was an article in last months LAA mag and I will check with my inspector before I start ( I haven't got one yet) but from what I can see the options are alochrome and 1K yellow zinc chromate.
I'll let you know how I get on.
Good luck with you project
