Both P909 and P912 connect to Stein's main bus. P909 goes through the ANL fuse and shunt prior to the main bus. You can do it the way you described, but P912 is already in the cockpit.

The adjustment procedure is pretty straightforward, but can anybody chime in on how much they actually turned the adjustment screw (number of notches moved)?

For the slow kit builders, this is easily done in section 29. Temporarily bolt the column in place before shimming and measure the angles. Remove the column to file. Took me 5 minutes.
