Control Rod Upgrades

Recommended Posts

For those who haven't done the upgrade yet, here are a few tips...


1. Saw about 3/16 off each MM4 to get the same length. There is still plenty of thread in the insert.


2. The rod end inserts are hard to tap. Not a place to have weak threads. Be prepared to have an expert do it for you.


3. Drilling the wide washers is easy, but you really need a drill press for the bellcranks.


4. You'll need eight AN4 7A bolts, matching MS21042-4 nuts and ten stop nuts for the mm4s.


5. Watch out for clearances - things that touch now that didnt before.
