Task: Brake Pedals

Today I drilled the F-6116 & F-6115 rudder pedal bearing blocks to #10 by marking per the plans. I then cut F-6115 in half by scribing a line 7/8 from both the top and bottom to find center. The band saw worked well for this task.



Next I used AutoCAD to draw the rivet hole locations on the F-790 elevator pushrod assembaly. I printed the drawing, cut it out, and taped it to the pushrod. I then used a center-punch to mark the hole and a drill-press to drill it.

Next we cutout the F-635 elevator bellcrank. I had to drill an extra hole 2.5" from the center bearing hole for the autopilot pitch servo rod mount.
