Default RE: Carbon Fiber Push Rods ??

The pictures are a little out of focus, but I think you can get the idea. First find all thread rod that fits the clevis you want to use. Then find a piece of CF tube that slides over the all thread pretty easily. Next wrap about 1/2 inch of the all thread with sewing thread. Do this until you have a good snug fit in the CF tube. When you have all of the thread on, soak it in medium CA and quickly slide it into the CF tube. I usually hold the all thread with needle nose pliers at the point that I want the CF tube to stop. This way I can slide it on quickly and not have to worry about going to far. This is a one shot deal though. The all thread is completely locked in place now. The CA makes a very good bond with the inside of the CF tube. Hopefully the pictures illustrate this well.
