I am machinng the rear fly wire fitting out of 4140 block.

The prints call for a .685 opening to accept the fitting attached to

the fly wire (7/8 -.095 -.095).

Is the fly wire end a clevis or an eye? Does anyone have a picture/sketch

of this part? I am trying to avoid machining to a .095 thickness unless it

is absolutely required, ie would a .625 opening be adequate?
