#1 Radius Arm Check Strap

Post by colinevans » Wed Jul 06, 2022 7:37 pm

Evening all
Got the IRS back up today without too much drama but a quick question about the radius arm check straps. There was no lockwire on the bolts when I took them down so not sure what they lockwire to? Apologies if I am missing something but I have only ever lockwired bolts to other bolts.
Cheers, Colin.

Hi Colin,
I just drilled a small hole in the Check Strap and wired through that.
Regards,
Dave

That's very helpful, thanks Dave. Think I am going to have to drop them again anyway (deep joy!) as I just realised I hadn't taken the stone chip off before I bolted them up!
Cheers Colin
