Page 09-24 step 9 and page 09-25 step 5 - clevis pin fit
In doing some test-fitting in preparation of installing the pitch trim servo, I dug out the hardware and found a problem. I am waiting for paint to dry on the metal components, but I test-fit the clevis pin into the trim servo and it does not fit through the hole on the actuator rod. The pin should be an MS20392-1C11 according to the plans. That is the part number from the parts bag. It also does not seem to fit through the NAS1149FN432P washers, although it was getting late and there is a chance I grabbed the wrong washers so I will have to test that again.
Am I supposed to just push harder to install the pin through the trim servo actuator rod or get a different pin? I know from searching the forums that a loose fit is bad (some reports of the trim tab being loose due to wear in the trim tab horn holes, requiring a bushing to correct) but I don't want to hurt something by force-fitting things.
