Installing aileron bellcrank

1.0 hours

I primed the pushrod tubes. Then bolted the bellcrank to the wing and fitted the tube into place. I left it here because I need to get the ends welded for the bellcrank to aileron push tubes instead of riveting them on.

The bushing at the center of the bellcrank needs to be drilled out to full size. I drilled a hole in a 2x4 to hold the bushing, then drilled out the center. I split the 2x4 at the hole to get the bushing back out of the wood.
