    The electric trim system consists of an elevator-mounted servo, which controls the position of the trim tab via a rigid pushrod linkage inside the elevator structure.

    The instructions are divided into the following sections:

    1. Basic Servo Installation: making the servo cutout in the elevator skins and ribs.
    2. Pushrod Installation: installing the pushrod linkage from the servo to the trim tab control horn.
    3. Final Servo Installation: mounting the servo in its cutout.
    4. Wiring Installation: installing the wiring harness from the cockpit to the tail, as well as related electrical components.
    5. Cockpit Installation: installing the control switch, trim tab position indicator and related components.
    6. System Adjustment and Final Assembly: adjusting the pushrod linkage and sealing the servo cover.
