ASSEMBLE COPILOTS COCKPIT CONTROL ASSEMBLY
ASSEMBLE PITCH TRANSFER BELLCRANK
Press bearing (dissimilar metals) (17) in pitch
transfer bellcrank (18) until it bottoms. (Refer to
TM 55-1500-322-24.) Use arbor press.

FLIGHT SAFETY PARTS
This is an installation critical flight
safety part. All aspects of its assembly
and installation must be ensured at
each joint connection and mounting to
Ensure that all bushings are properly
installed (including orientation) in
the output and input clevises of the
Ensure bellcrank hub bearings are
serviceable and properly installed.
Ensure associated bushings are
proeprly installed in the adjacent
Ensure proper attaching hardware
(impedance type bolt, nut, and
washers) is installed including
verification of bolt head orientation,
torque, and installation of cotter pins.
Loose attachments within flight control
primary linkage will degrade aircraft
control. Missing components will
cause loss of control.
Position pitch transfer bellcrank (18) in support
(30) arm (25) up and forward. Install bolt (32),
two washers (33 and 34), and nut (35) in support.
Torque nut (35) to 60 to 90 inch-pounds. Install
cotter pin (36).
Check bolt (32). Bolt shall not rotate with torque
less than 10 inch-pounds. There shall be no
axial looseness. If bolt rotates or is loose, add
washer under nut and repeat step 15.
