Cessna has issued several non-mandatory service kits for the rudder and elevator hinge bearings on the Caravan due to a corrosion issue with the needle bearing. The service kits require modification to the hinge structure, not just the bearing itself. The new bearing is a different size than the "original" design, so the mounting hardware is different as well.
Because of these structural changes any aircraft that has had the service kits installed cannot use hardware from a non-service kit aircraft. McFarlane offers two kits for each surface, one for service kit equipped aircraft and one for non-service kit equipped aircraft.
