Ailerons, bellcranks, and pushrods

Hours: 2.4 | Posted in Ailerons

Prepped the long aileron pushrods for primer, along with touching up spots on the wing needed to be spot-primed after assembly.  Greased and installed the aileron bellcranks; torqued the bracket-spar bolts, and the pivot bolts.  Also replaced the 4 bolts on each aileron that may have been overtorqued with fresh bolts & nuts.  The removed ones showed no signs of distress, but better to be sure than wondering when it comes to control surfaces.
