Default Soldering Linkages

I have a question about soldering a clevis onto the pushrod.

Let's say you've got a 4-40 pushrod thats already threaded on one end. I'll twist a 4-40 ball link on there and then cut the rod to size. On the other end, I'll solder on a 4-40 steel clevis.

For years, I've been using brazing rod and a mapp gas torch for this operation. It works, but I always end up using my dremel and grinding off the little bit of excess brazing that invariably builds up.

Can I use silver solder for these pushrods? Is it strong enough for 4-40 pushrods?
