    Thanks Jim I know the small pulleys your talking about not sure I need them my cables seem fine going over top. But then again im not done yet. What I would really like to know is how much travel the flap mechanism has up and down?  On the paper I have it says something like 11.4 from floor. Not sure if that means 11.4 degrees from level with the floor.
