Control Column rebuild

OK, Rule #1, MARK ALL PARTS as you remove them! I failed to do that, as I assumed, they were all the same.

Turns out the Pulleys where the aileron cable attaches are different, however there are no markings on the pulleys themselves.

I did pull the Pulleys off, remove the control yoke bushings and universals. The Pulleys were sandblasted, primed and painted. The bushings were cleaned and the universals were inspected and cleaned.

I did order some new pulleys (Phenolic ones) as they are cheap and easy to change now.

I’m expecting the Control Coumn to come back from powder coating this week and I plan to re-assemble and install the control column this week end.

Next will be the Rudder pedal assymembly.

Below are some pics and the chart of parts for the Control Column
