Experimental Aircraft AILERON / RUDDER HINGE RETROFIT KIT
Experimental Aircraft AILERON / RUDDER HINGE RETROFIT KIT prevents additional wear on experimental aircraft hinges circumnavigating time consuming hinge repair or replacement down the road. This HINGE KIT will fit any MS20001-P3, '-P4', '-P5', or '-P6' extruded aluminum piano hinge that is specified for use on the Long-Ez, E-Racer, VariEze, Defiant, Cozy, Solitaire, Lancair, Pulsair or Glasair ailerons and/or rudders. You will be supplied with enough Teflon spaghetti tubing and a special high grade stainless spring steel wire for all the hinges used in the ailerons and rudders.
This HINGE KIT will work in an already worn hinge, but just how worn out (larger I.D. of hinge hole) remains a question we can not answer. We believe the DuPont Teflon tubing supplied in the kit will wear proportionally to the amount of space between the tube and the hinge. After more than six years there has not been any additional wear on any of the installed retrofit kits that we know of.
INSTALLATION: Mike Melvill and I found this retrofit to be a piece of cake, taking approximately 10 minutes for each wing. I enclose detailed instructions with each kit explaining several different installation methods used by various builders.
I really don't believe you will have any questions, but just in case, you can call me anytime 0800 through 1700 hours E.S.T., Monday through Friday at the numbers below. Please identify yourself as an EXPERIMENTAL AIRCRAFT BUILDER.
