The following is a description of the installation procedures associated with the RPB Type-F. Installation instructions are included with each unit and should be followed closely.
NOTE: Before installing the rudder, insert the red installation hat into the lip seal. When rudder is in place, remove, invert and replace it on top of the Type-F unit to keep debris off the lip seal during use.
