Default Where do i measure from for CG

The wing on my PT19 is slightly swept back and I don't know where to measure to find correct CG spot.
Do I measure from the absolute center of the 2 wing halfs or along side of the fuse or further out on the wing.
My owners manual says 4 15/16 from the front of the wing, but
does not say from where to measure.

Sure would appreciate some info.

Thanks Varmit

I suspect that you would measure from the LE at the sides of the fuse. If manuf. wanted you to measure somewhere else they would have mentioned it.
Also the leading most part of the wing is either at edge of fuse of c/l of fuse.
