Default OS 7D ball link replacement

I am in need of a plastic ball link for the carb arm. OS discontinued it quite a while ago. I once used a Dubro link, but do not remember which part number it was.

Buy a 2-56 ball link and pop out the ball. It should fit perfect. I used the Dubro for years.

The issue here is that the ball link is metric in size, most likely 5mm ball dia and 3mm thread size, it is longer then a normal ball link and has a bend to it. I would suggest looing into some ball links used in helicopters, especially the ones used on the rotor heads. Often these were longer and metric sized. Although straight, they could be bent and may make a suitable replacement. I originally read the post wrong, if I'm not mistaken again, any 3/16 ball link should work or once again, check into Heli ball links for the plastic part of the link.

I just need the plastic part, and the dubro part # 367 2-56 ball link housing fits perfect.
