Brief Description: Pushrods & rudder pedal support blocks
- Installed the remaining 3 rod end bearings on the aileron pushrods.
- Began making the rudder pedal support blocks. Using a lesson learned from doing the flap rod supports, I used the already-drilled holes in the aluminum support brackets to mark the second bolt hole location in each block so I know they would be very close. When doing the flap rod supports (which had already been drilled per the drawings) I found that even being careful to locate the bolt holes in the blocks per the same plan dimensions, the tollerance was off and I had to do some creative drilling and patching to make them fit.
So I drilled the first hole in the block, then put it on the aluminum support bracket with a single bolt, and marked the location of the second hole.
