....The spring seems too tense, it takes two hands to push the button to raise and lower the flaps. I've lubricated the mechanism, not much help.

This is an early kit, has the spring perhaps been replaced with something with less tension?

Airplane coming together, brakes serviced yesterday, no bubbles in any line and pedals are solid. Floor panel installed to facilitate setting elevator cable tension, a mechanic is doing that for me.

Closing in on first engine start.
