Well, to take the Reflector (element #1) as an example:

EC must be inserted over trap TA until the end of EC is 3/8" from the end 
of the trap TA. Just insert EC into EA until you end up with the desired 
dimension A1, less 3/8" for trap TA.

The exact amount will vary depending on the dimensions you select from 
chart 1.
