H9 Titanium Pro Links???
 
I recently picked up a pull-pull adjustable link set up from SWB manufacturing. The kit includes 2 4-40 ball links, 2 white threaded nylon ends where the cable loops thru and 2 1.5 inch H9 titanium pro links. On both of the H9 links, one end will simply NOT thread into any of the 4-40 items I have, Kwik links, nuts, ball links, nothing. BOTH of the H9 links are like this. The other end of the H9 links thread into everything I have without so much as a flinch.
So I went to my pushrod supply, picked out a pack of new 2" H9 titanuim pro links, opened the package, and tried on. SAME RESULT. One end will simply not start threading into anything I have.

What gives????

H9's Pro-Links have left hand threads on one end, to faciltate adjustments without removing the ball ends.

that's it. You either need to use ball links with left-hand threads (John @ Aeroprotect can help you out here) or nylon 4-40 fittings with *no* threads. Hayes black 4-40 clevises, Dubro heavy-duty clevises and the Dubro 'Heavy-Duty Control Horn System' all are self-tapping.

You can also get left hand threaded ball links from Nelson Hobby Specialties Item No. RCL87L Randy

While LH threaded components are sweet, you can simply turn the component onto the Pro-link with its thread orentation in mind. Been doing this for some time. Try and pull one apart, I didn't think so.

:cool: I agree with mglavin, I do the same thing. Just left hand twist the nylon ball link onto the LH end of the Pro-Link, it won't come apart even though the ball link was pre-tapped for RH threads. :D
