Yes, I think you got the point. When was new my T28 had one of the surfaces (maybe the elevator, I don't remember) that was slightly out of centering. Fixed it as you described by gently acting with pliers on the bending that is on the correspoding tail link and everything was very smoothly with the maiden flight (as well as with many others later on!).
