Save time and money searching for parts and hard to find taper reamers!
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 recommended if any free motion or rust around the joint pivots is detected.
Each convenient kit also includes two types of nut; only two of the four nuts provided are required when installing the universal joint. Refer to the illustrated parts catalog for your aircraft to determine the correct fastener configuration.
