Default Bushings

Welcome back from OSH everyne that went.

I am about to have a technical inspection and while connecting te elevator cables I noticed that the some holes have bushings and others do not. Figuring I made a mistake I reviewd the KAI (32-14) there is a bushing on F-1207 B, but none are called for in F-1206 A, 1204-D or 1204-A.

1. Am I missing something?
2. Is it assumed that cable tension will such that the cables will not rub on the bulkhead
3. Can I put bushings in to make myself feel better?

One other issue. In preparation for my tech counselor inspection prior to I am using the condition inpection checklist of the maintenance manual as a go by.

Is this adequate or is there a better reference?

Even on the RV-12iS, which has a different Section 32 .. not all holes have snap bushings.

I would leave them out, as it was definitely intentional by the factory. As for why, I can only guess that the cable deflection, being so close to the pulleys at those points, is minimal and there is no chance of rubbing there.
