New! Control Yoke Universal Joint Kits to Help Comply with Piper AD 2010-15-10

Save time and money searching for parts and hard to find taper reamers


Piper U-joint Kit

AD 2010-15-10 requires inspection of the connection between the control yoke universal joint and the shaft on the forward (engine) end of the joint. This inspection is a convenient time to replace worn out u-joints.


McFarlane has created kits including the u-joint, shaft, taper pins, taper reamer, drill bit and other hardware to help comply with this AD, all at a fraction of the cost of buying the parts from Piper.


A universal joint attaches to each control yoke shaft behind the instrument panel. Replacement of the universal joint is required if any free motion or rust around the joint pivots is detected.

Availability of some parts is limited, so place your order now to ensure quick delivery!


For ordering details, go to Piper Universal Joint Kits.
