Default How to get a tighter fit in servo horn

I"m using a Sullivan #4 clevis on my Futaba servo horns. The loose fit allows quite a bit of slop in the joint. I need a good idea to make the hole in the horn smaller. Or maybe some other clevis with a larger pin.

Drill another hole in it.

look in the bag with the other arms, and use the circle one with no holes, and drill your own

For less than $10 you can put ball links all the way around.

Hmmm......A tighter hole you say? The universal quest.
Seriously though, I use Sullivan golden clevises on stock Futaba arms quite often and they always fit snug.

I'm bad. My "loose" servo horns are the Hitec aluminum ones that have threaded holes (not Futaba). I guess I'll have to get some threaded balls to go with them.
