    Default Colt nose wheel steering horn

    Looking for the nose wheel steering horn to disconnect the rudder interconnect on Tri-Pacer, anyone know we’re I can find one?
    Thank you Greg

    I don't think that is an option. The rudder pedals have cables running aft to the rudder, and tie rods running thru firewall to the horn on the nosewheel. You cannot disconnect any of it or plane will become uncontrollable.

    Or have I misinterpreted your original post?
    What is your goal here?

    There is a service bulletin to remove the interconnect but you must use the Colt steering arm. The interconnect saddles the rudder cables to connect to the ailerons with some long springs involved as well.
