FWIW, I have S18 cables in stock as well. Jeff, they should be exactly 5 inches longer than the T.

I ordered rudder cables from you and installed them in my T-18... maybe you sold me T-18 rudder cables. It could be that something is just that different with my airplane. I don’t believe the T drawings specify a length for the rudder cables. I know my top and bottom rudder bushings are 2 different sizes.

That is correct. It doesn't. At least not directly. The top and bottom rudder Bushings should be the same size. Same as flaps as well. Drawing 581.

One nice thing about homebuilt aircraft is that the drawings don't have to be followed verbatim. The down side of that is replacement parts per drawing don't always fit and I had to learn to be a little more cautious (measure first) when ordering parts.
