    Looking for diagram for 737 fmc/cdu pedastal

    Hello, I haven't been able to find measurements or a decent diagram for this particular although I have seen plenty of pictures. I am going by Juan Cordon's site for everything else. Thanks for the help.

    Ok, I have a number of measurements. If I could find out the angle of the CDU's to a horizontal plane, I couldprobably figure out the rest. The drawings that I have found suggest that the top of the fmc/cdu pedstal is at at 30 degree angle to the floor. Is this correct?

    Thanks
