Help with Final installation of Horizontal Stabilizer and Elevator, CH701?

The photo assembly guide shows quite a bit of detail on installation of the rudder, but no information on installing the stabilizer. I also have John Croke's dvd's...but no info there either.. Does anyone know of a source of information on this subject?
