    Spring loading for Flaps lever

    I put this on another TQ thread, but think it can help as stand alone.

    Here is one way to do it, all metal:
    The rod B slides through the block A which is bolted on the lever.
    B is lifted to disengage from the dented quadrant and the spring (compression) brings it back down on the next notch...easy cheap.

    Very nice indeed.... Thank you for sharing this and yes I think it did deserve a thread of it's own.
