Installing hinge rod ends, servo pushrod
|Special tool for installing rod ends (Full size)|
I saw this on the web somewhere, I forget where. A handy tool for installing the rod ends. It is made from PVC pipe. Cut a slot in one end, and a hole in the other for a screwdriver to turn it with. Works great.

Here is one of the rod ends screwed in
|Trim tab pushrod (Full size)|
I installed the trim tab pushrod hardware. The threaded rod required cutting to length. I then put it all together.
|Elevator counterbalance weights (Full size)|
Cut the lead weights as shown on the plans and bolted them to the counterbalance rib. They make the elevator much heavier than it was before.
