    There are way too many AN42B bolts to choose from, does anyone know which one would be the right fit for a PA16? I am placing an order for the scott arm and wanted to include the bolts..

    The less expensive arm that I noted above will use an AN43B-6. The Scott 1140 arm will use an AN42B-6.

    Like called out in the linked thread I have always used the -7 with an AN960-10 washer and an AN310-3 nut and cotter pin so it can rotate a bit.

    I would also check that the holes in the rudder itself are not worn as well. I am talking about the holes between the rudder and the arm. The holes where the springs attach have a bushing and have seen those drilled out and a larger bushing installed and it broke off.

    Rather than use AN3 bolts to attach the bracket to the rudder, I taper reamed and used AN386 taper pins with AN 975 taper pin washers. After about 800 hours of hard work, at the last annual, for the first time, I had to take up the taper pin nuts by 1/3 of a turn and they are completely rigid again. You need to take a lot of care with a taper reamer. My old (recently departed at 97years) engineer mate said 'taper reamers go not enough, not enough, @#** too much!'.
