Aileron / Flap bushings


Recommended Posts

Yet another question -

 

I've got a lot of play in the aileron and flap tubes where they pass through the brackets that bolt to the trailing edge of the wing.

 

Had anyone replaced these bushing before ? If so, is there a source (preferably in the US) for new ones ?

 

I emailed Wayne Fisher, haven't heard back just yet.

 

I'm sure they're a standard size. I could probably find some if I knew the ID / OD needed.

 

Thanks again guys.

FYI, I never did find a source for the bushings. Even Wayne Fisher didn't know where to look. So I bought a lathe and made some.

 

So in the future, I can supply PTFE or delrin aileron and flap bushings for the flap equipt drifter, if anyone needs them made.

I should be able to do those. The materials will be about $25 I think. Shipping from the US shouldn't be to much. Send me your address via PM and I'll get some off to you. Once you get them and you're happy, you can paypal whatever you think they're worth (maybe around $3 each plus shipping)

 

It might take me a week or so to get materials and get em made.

Guys,

 

So sorry for the late reply. I dropped off the face of the earth. I've got some brass rod stock, and I'll try to get a few sets of bushes made based on the drawing above. I'll post here when they're done, then you can message me a shipping address.

 

Again, sorry for the long delay.

 

Justin

Justin,

 

Do you happen to know what lubricant I can use on Delrin bearings?
