We are installing our(Univair) jury struts on Univair's sealed struts, and are wandering if most people apply some type of tape or rubber under the clamps that hold the assembly together? Also if the jury struts are mounted 90 deg to the wings the main struts are bowed up a little. If the main struts are installed straight then the jury struts are angled a bit and the aft main strut is bowed forward . This forward bow is caused by the taper between both main struts and the connecting tube (small round tube) is moved up the taper and isn't long enough at this higher position. Any help would be appreciated.
