Popup tipup bellcrank and pushrod

Back from vacation. Forward pushrod fitted to the bottom lug of the bellcrank. As with the short pushrod, I had to file away some of one of the bellcrank lugs to avoid interference with the rod end.

It's because of the angle the pushrods engage the bellcrank. Here you can see how one lug of the top pushrod was filed away to clear the rod end.

All filing done. Ready for priming and final assembly.

Used a drilling jig to cross drill this end of the pushrod.

...and the other. These parts are now ready for priming and final assembly.
