• The Biplane Forum is a large global active community of biplane builders, owners and pilots. From Pitts to Skybolts, to older barnstormers, all types are welcome. In addition to our active community, our content boasts exhaustive technical information which is often sought after for projects and maintenance. This information has accumulated over the 12+ years the forum has been in existence.

    The Biplane Forum is a private community. Subscriptions are only $49.99/year or $6.99/month to gain access to this great community and unmatched source of information not found anywhere else on the web. We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction).

Elevator Horn Issue

I am utilising many items off an old salvaged Skybolt. I seem to have a mystery where thefinal connector tubeattaches to the elevator horns...see pic.

The hole in the horns is for an AN4 bolt, the hole in the connector tube is much bigger, I forgot to measure it, but it looks like 3/8 or 7/16. So, sandwiching this between the two horns, I have a AN4 bolt going through a sloppy big hole...what should be in the hole? Some sort of brass/bronze bushing?
