Default Spring Air Control Valve Arm?!?

What would you guys use to manipulate the arm on the Spring Air Control Valve? The hole is so small that a clevis will not fit and I'm worried about enlarging the hole with a drill bit...Is this my only option; to enlarge the hole with a drill bit?

Thanks

Use a servo disk instead. Cut a slot ~ 3/8. They come with most servos. Dont know about JR, I use futaba and hitec.

I have always used a clevis in the spring air valve. Try using a mini-nylon clevis, like the ones for the 1/2a's.

I agree with mscic.

I found that the mini nylon clevis fits perfect. Also, I like the idea of using a nylon clevis on the valve toggle so there's no metal-to-metal contact. I just went and checked my Spring Air control valve to see if a small-stud ball link would fit and it does... but the threaded stud isn't really long enough to get the nut on all the way. Otherwise, that might have been a solution, too.
