Time to hook up the elevators. This was a pretty straight-forward operation, all things considered, the only real wrinkle was getting the push-tube connected at the same time as our¬†Strong Pitch Trim¬†system. One end of the tube was drilled and and finished by the factory, with the other end needing to be cut, fitted with the rod end sleeve, drilled, and bolted. Then the rod end is inserted into the center of the elevator counterweights. Also, the slot the tube passes through in the keel cover wasn’t big enough when I originally cut it, so that took some grinding.
