Rudder Post

Post by PoconoJohn »

Has anyone welded sections together for the Rudder Post? Bending it seems like a difficult task.

Also, regarding the bushing in the rudder bar; plans call for 3/8" 18ga (.049) tube in there with a 5/16" bolt. A 5/16" bolt won't fit in such a tube. So, AN4 bolt with plans specified bushing tube, or AN5 and larger bushing tube?

Thank you!

I drilled the bushing to fit the AN5 bolt
