Can someone tell me if the rudder cables go inside or outside of the flap cables? Thanks! Troy and Barbara

That's actually a trick question of sorts, I answered assuming you were referring to the tunnel area. If you draw a line from the center of the firewall about 8" above the floorboard to the rudder horn, that's where the rudder cables lie. The flap cables start in the center under the lever, go straight back and down the the back of the baggage compt, they then head outboard and then forward to the flap horns. So overall they take turns on whos outboard.
