Subject: Flight Controls: Control Lever Installation
Date: October 7, 2014
While carrying out re-installation of flight control levers at the transmission deck, some operators have questioned the accuracy of the IPC, as the locking devices for the pivot bolts of the levers called up are of a different style from those installed at production.
The IPC calls up P/N 23350AC080LE for securing the pivot bolts.
Production Drawings call up the 23350AC080LE Lock Washer or an alternate of Lock Plate P/N 350A27-1064-20. This 350 P/N Lock Plate is very common and either P/N may be used in service.
