Default Anyone has Spares AN3-56

Just checking around to see if anyone has 4 extras AN3-56 to sell, my master cylinder are not returning 100%, i already have install the spring kit, maybe i need to look into a heavier spring and i should switch the individual bolt for the long ones. Any other advice. There was a place selling those bolts from a surplus stock, AN3-56 S, they were $3 each but they are out. Maybe someone bought way more than needed and now it is just sitting there. thanks

I have some, bought a pack of 28 or 30 for the same price 4 would have cost from Spruce. I gave some away but still have at least 12 I think. I will send them to you if I can find an easy cheap way to ship them.

Made mine from 3/16" stainless steel rod, cut to length, thread each end with a die and cutting oil and cross drill for a cotter pin. Installed using a washer on each end and a castle nut plus cotter pin on each end. Very inexpensive.

I did the basically same thing, but just followed the rudder pedal hinge construction on my Tiger.

Grumman simply used a 1/4" rod with a washer and cotter pin retaining it at both ends. Easier than threading.

I did the exact same, no need for threads in this application.
