UM T-28 Original Control Horn Positions

I was flying my UM T-28 this morning, and a gust came and blew it down. When it hit, what seemed like a spray of foam came from the ground. When I got to the wreckage, it was not as bad as I thought. Only the tail part with the rudder and elevator was off.

I am glueing it back together, but I was wondering if anyone knew what holes in the control horns the servo pushrods were in originally from the factory? I was going to start adjusting them anyways, but I would like to get back to my baseline first.

It's in the airplane manual iirc.

Sorry about your incident.

I looked through the manual and could not find anything about the "factory settings".

Sorry, Jerry, you are right.

I just did a quick search of the interwebs and couldn't find anything there either.

I hope someone will chime in.

The pushrods go in the outermost hole on each horn if you're going for factory settings.
