aileron to belcrank push rod interference

Hi to all


I am fitting the pushrod from aileron to bellcrank and it touches the spar.

You can see how when aileron is neutral, this pushrod touches the spar. When aileron is lowered, clearance is increased, butI can not raise my aileron due to this interference. I have checked dimensions of aileron fittings, bellcrank and bracket and they are O.K, The bellcrank is bended as per plans.


Any idea to fix this "bug" that is making me crazy??


Best regards


Manuel Benito
