FLIGHT SAFETY PARTS
This is an installation critical flight
safety part. All aspects of its assembly
and installation must be ensured at

Ensure locking tab washer is facing in
the proper direction.
Verify all required bushings are
installed in the associated clevis of
the yoke assembly and swashplate
Ensure wire bundle is routed so as not
to interfere with flight control system
After applying nut torque, ensure
locking tab washer is lockwired to the
jam nut per BAC5018.
Ensure proper attaching hardware
(impedance type bolt, nut, and
washers) is installed including
verification of bolt head orientation,
torque, and installation of cotter pins.
