ST3KR Elevators

4 posts in this topic

We have a little free play between the two elevators. Each elevator torque tube has two bolts through the elevator horn inner torque tube. I suspect the holes on the inner tube have worn a little. Is this a known issue? Are there common fixes to beef up the connection between the elevator and horn torque tubes? Any ideas and suggestions much appreciated. Thanks. Mike

If you have not already drilled oversize try to install NAS close tolerance bolts first.  Close Tolerance bolts are slightly larger diameter as compared to standard AN. Easy way to tighten up any slight movement.
