VB, I feel like a dummy. Your correct. it makes no sense to me but, that is how it is designed. I went through all my parts bags and my check lists, and I actually have "Two" sets of flap pulleys with the same part number. My packing/parts list shows only two pulleys for spar mounting at the flap arm. Some how they sent two sets in the kit.

There is almost no way to put traditional pulleys at that location. You'd have 1/8" clearance as the wing root rib swings over them. Plus the wing folding would likely kink the flap cable all to hell.
