You should have gotten Section 44A of the KAI when you received you AP Servos from Van's. That section gives you the installation information.

The autopilot servo mounting brackets have been a standard part of the fuselage for quite a few years now.
Only people with fuselage kits more than 4-5 years old should have to order the separate bracket kit.
Opinions, information and comments are my own unless stated otherwise. They do not necessarily represent the direction/opinions of my employer.
