On the stab trim indicator on the 737. Is there one side which is going to be more accurate than the other. Should there be a difference between them and if so, how much of a difference? On our procedures we set the stab trim according to the captains side because it is he or she who will check it as part of their take off/departure brief to check it is set correctly. Other than that, I cannot think of a reason why we set it according to one side over another, I thought they should be the same both sides?

On the NG's (classic's are probably the same) when the indicators are checked against the physical location of the jackscrew/stab, each indicator must be +-0.5 unit from the target and within 0.5 unit from each other. Neither target is considered the master, so either one could be the most accurate.
