Default aileron bellcrank

What am I missing? The plans show an AN4-32A bolt to mount the bellcrank, but the hole in the bellcrank is 3/8". The holes in the mount are 1/4".

I thought about that too. I haven't studied the plans really close, but I don't see a bushing in the "exploded" views.

Yep, there should be a brass bushing, that per the plans (note 1) "must be 1/64 - 1/32 longer than the steel bellcrank tube. Shorten brass bushing or steel tube as required."

They don't show it in the exploded view, I guess it would be hidden inside the bellcrank anyways, but it is called out along with the bolt specs, and also in Note 1, just to the upper right of the exploded drawing, (Dwg 9, Detail B)

Default Brass Bushing

See Note #1 on right hand side of DWG. 9. This is called for under the AN4-32 Hardware listed at this location.
