On the last page of the SB.... I guess you missed it.
Install the F-1294A and F-1294B Upper and Lower Tailcone Fairings and check for clearance at extremes of travel. See KAI Section 12
It is assumed that if you discover interference that you will correct it to gain the clearance described in Section 12
