I understand there have been changes. The section I quoted is from the plans that apply to my particular exhaust system. Let’s say I am working on possibly the world’s slowest RV12 build. Although I normally try to stay up to date with plan revisions, in this case I thought I should use the plans applicable to my exhaust. Are you suggesting I should simply ignore this as it does not apply to later exhausts?
At some point I will probably install a newer system, but that is a costly option given the state of the Australian dollar, freight costs etc.

No, just pointing out that most people here will have plans and parts that are newer is all, since at times people will find this thread while searching for help, and it's important to know things have changed. And yes, you do need to use the plans applicable to the kit parts you're installing!

We'll be excited to see your airplane flying!

fwiw, removing one stop bolt in the front gear fork and turning the nosewheel 180 deg. may make some installations easier to remove the lower cowling.if the plane is parked with several sheets of paper under the nose gear it turns easy.
