Default Deep well in RV8

I put the smoke tank in my RV8 front deep well. That caused the bulkhead to push out and rub the castle nut/screw on the rudder pedal. I did not notice the wear until it rubbed a hole through the bulkhead and froze the rudder pedal. Noticed just prior to takeoff. This is something all RV8 owners should check.
