FMS P51 solution for 3 second sequencer not closing completely!

After reading different posts on the problem, there was really no clear fix clarified because spinning the clevises in does not allow door clearance for wheels to retract, you need the extra throw by going out to the outer hole to obtain this clearance! The new sequencer has different end points and doesn't allow the servo arm to stroke as much as the original sequencer. One fix was to pull servos and move linkage arms to outer holes. You DO NEED to move to outer holes but you do not need to remove servos! Start by unhooking clevis from door, remove wing, " I left wires attached", and push arms on servos to fuselage side of wing. You now have room to rotate rods out and relocate to outer holes. Push the servo arms back up to normal position and hook everything back up. You will have to make some clevis adjustments but this will make it close fully and open with clearance of wheels with no servo noise.spinning clevises in does not allow door clearance for wheels to retract, you need the extra throw by going out to the outer hole to obtain this clearance!

Why not just spin the clevises in?
