- Left Elevator
to Log Index
Task: Attached the trim tab to the elevator
and mounted on the HS.
Its really started to look like part of an
Close-up of the left elevator.
Here is the bolt with several washers installed between the
elevator control horns. I used a drill bushing I purchased
from McMaster-Carr to drill the horns #40 and expanded to
1/4".The bolt and nut are very close to the weld. I had
to sand down part of the washer on the far left, next to the
nut. The nut shown is also different than the one supplied.
Van's supplies an AN365-428 nylok nut, however the edges hit
the weld-mount. I called Van's and they suggested I use an
MS21042-4 lock nut. It is oblong shaped as a locking feature.
I'm still having trouble getting a tool around both the bolt
and nut. I need to find a double-offset open-ended wrench
and a short socket.
