Default TOP FLITE CLEVIS

I am missing a couple of clevis from my P47 kit. The clevis' are for .074" rods, and I can't find that size at my LHS. Any one have any sources for that?

Thanks,

Ben

Clevises in Top Flite kits should be either 4-40 or 2-56. Clevises are size like nuts and bolts.

that is what I thought, but I bought 2-56 which are too small and 4-40 which are too big. I checked my instruction manual and it lists the pushrods as .074 where the 2-56 are .072 I think. I may be way off, but the clevis' I have do not fit

That's odd, unless they have started using metric stuff. Maybe 2mm.
If that is the case, I would change it all out to good quality Sullivan, Dubro, or GP hardware and pushrods.

Duh, I didn't even think of changing out the pushrods...I have plenty of those.


Thanks Terry
