I'm replacing my luff track, and the PDF instructions advise to cut the part to fit. It comes about 1'' too long, so it does need to be cut. The existing track on my mast always seemed about 1/8'' too short, leaving a gap between where the luff track meets the aluminum mast at the base of the comptip.
So the question is, can I cut the new part to eliminate that gap, or is that part of some engineering tolerance for flex, or ...?
If you have a comptip, does your luff track leave a gap of about 1/8'' from the base of the comptip?
Thanks for any help!
