53"

Just curious, have most found the 53" measurement in the manual for the jury strut spar fittings to be accurate? Or is everyone mounting the wings on the fuse and lining things up that way? It seems that when looking at photos of different airplanes the fittings vary up to a couple of inches in relation to the nearest rib. This could be because of variations in actual rib placement along the spar, but I would think the distance from the strut attach points on the wing and therefore the wing attach bolts at the root would be fixed between different airplanes due to the effect any differences would have on the dihedral angle.
