      There's a way to gain some at the bottom, but you have to temporarily
      remove the spindle assembly from the fuselage to do it. What you do is
      1. unscrew the handle that holds the limit block (pn #65) and remove
      the gib
      2. temporarily raise the spindle assembly off the fuselage and lift the
      limit block off the fuselage
      3. put the spindle assembly back on (you won't take it off again)
      4. cut about 1/8" off of the sharp wedge edge of the limit block from
      the side opposite the handle. At this point you should be able to put
      the limit block back on the fuselage, without the gib, handle side
      first. If necessary, cut a little more off until you can fit it back
      5. place the gib and handle back in and tighten down.

      This gives you the ability to use the limit block, yet remove it for
      more downward travel if desired. To remove it, just remove the handle
      and gib and pull it away from the fuselage. Install in reverse order.
