Today, I installed the Dubro micro control horns and the Dubro micro pushrods, these are a little lighter and more flexible than the stock push rods. Insert the pushrods into the shielding and lay them into the tracks, the pushrods should be pulled back to the wood control horn mount pads on the ailerons to get an idea of control horn mounting. I made the hole for the horn 3/16 outboard and 3/16 aft, measuring from the fwd inboard corners(see pics). Positioned here, inward spring tension holds the rod inplace along with the little keepers(not installed in pics) that comes with the pushrod kit, heat shrink could be used in place of keepers if your using spare or recycled pushrods. As you can see in the pics, there are yellow streaks in the pushrod tracks, those are bits of shielding glued in place. The fwd and aft pieces are 2 inches long and the center pieces are 1 inch. The aft tips of the aft pieces are mounted just were the aft portion of the tracks end. The fwd tips of the fwd pieces are flush with the face of the brake. and the mid portions and just centered between the fwd and aft. You can see the pushrods installed, don't cut them for now. We will cut them later whe nthe final position of everything is determined.
