Default Possible Error on Page 9-12

The trim pushrod is specified to be riveted with AN426AD3-3.5 These rivets seem really undersized. I used a 4.5 and it fit perfectly. Also, note that I did prime these parts so it could just be primer. The primer is pretty thin.

Both sides of that push rod are countersunk for double-flush riveting. I can't remember if I up-sized those or not. I sometimes find it difficult to judge rivet lengths required for those double flush.
Hopefully someone else will have a better answer.

I just completed mine this evening. I had the same issue. The -3.5 rivets looked way to short for double flush riveting of these parts. I went with -4.5's and it came out perfect.
