RUDDER RIGGING. Pedal Arm Connection Components

I tried to slightly bend the steel tabs on the rudder arms to align them in the direction of the rudder cable coming from the fuselage side. The second tab broke off the arm during the process, almost without effort. This did not give me much confidence in the part. I drilled a 1/4” hole through the bottom of the rudder arms perpendicular to the actual direction of the rudder cable. I installed a bronze bushing through it to encase the 3/16” bolt. The rudder cable will hook to the cable bushing on the inboard side of the arm, using the components supplied with the kit. The return spring will hook on the outboard side of the bolt between two washers and over a small bushing insert that I cut from a longer one.
