Short Description:  Assembly of push rods

As I was attaching the elevators to the horizontal stablizer and confirming the washer count on the center bearing, I decided to verify the deflection of the elevators. I found that the down deflection had 30, but the up deflection only had 15. After removing the elevator stop (drillig out the rivets and unbolting it) I cut some of the angle flange out of the rear elevator stop (about 1/4") After re-riveting the stop on and re-bolting it it provided the 25 degrees that I was looking for. So I have 30 degrees up angle and 25 degrees down angle.

Fabricated the other two push rods, cutting the tubing at length. Priming and riveting on the rod end pieces bolding on the rod end bearings. Additionally I assemblyed the front and rear sticks. Tying in the small pushrod between the two control sticks.

*I had a problem with the joining of the elevator horns. I selected the right elvator horn for the 3/8" x 3/8" hold for. Summer




Typical linkage for the front and rear elevator.





Front and rear control sticks





Rear elevator stop, after modification for extending travel
