Does it show the height on the prints ?
.
My plane is in the pole barn.... with a pontoon boat next to it .

I'll see if I can get at it.

I've got more firewood to cut , So I haven't been messing with anything else , dodging weather...cutting / splitting wood
.
If I had to GUESS.... 1-3/4" was the number I remember ( 22 yrs ago )
.

PS For some reason.... Kolb had to send me another one of those brackets... It was different than the ones I had.
I think it was Taller....( 1-3/4" )
Sometimes you just have to take the leap
and build your wings on the way down...

Just a thought...
I had something wrong with my Chromoly HS mount...

When I got the replacements...They had adjusting holes.
.
( My Buttercup has the same adjustment...Usually down from neutral is where to start...)

Mine is still blocked in by the pontoon boat...and it's snowing.

up hill both ways too...
