Maybe thatís the wrong word. I mean the forked fitting that the rod end bolts to. I think you want the tubing to butt against the rod end, not against that forked fitting. That means the OD has to fit inside the fork.

They used to have spacers like that on the aileron pushrods between the sticks and the torque tubes in the wing root. Then they lengthened the hex rods and eliminated the spacers. I wonder why they didnít do that with the push rod discussed in this thread.

Good point.

Looking at the Aurora specs a .032 tube spacer would work. It's a straight push-pull so no angular deflection to the side.

Looks like 7/16 x 0.058 6061 tubing from spruce reamed out to 3/8 ID would work - or 7/16 OD 4130 steel if you prefer that.

The K&S hobby tubing rack at your local Ace Hardware will have lots of thin wall brass and aluminum tubing.
