    Default Looking for seat slide assembly bits

    Hello,
    I have a parts catalogue, and I know what parts I need. Univair no joy. Am I now on a scrounge? Or is there a good source for odd parts like that (pin, spring, clip) on the slide control.

    Seat doesn't stay pinned as securely as I'd like. Spring is missing, pin is worn out.

    Thanks
    Scott

    Call Univair, give them the part number for the pin and the spring. I had a pin that would release the right seat. I tried owner manufactured, but it broke at the hole for the cotter pin. Finally I called Univair and they sent me a new one... That’s my experience from a year ago.

    I remember your posts. Here is that thread with good pictures and a video as well if Univair can't help and you have to make a pin.

    Univair has it, but be careful, there are 2 pieces to that pin, the larger diameter bullet is one piece, and has an internal thread. The smaller diameter section with the cross hole is another piece and threads into the bullet piece. You will think they are made of gold when you see the Univair price. Anyone with a lathe should be able to make it for you.

    Its a regular AN-3 bolt, (AN3-14 to be precise) but the parts catalog shows it as one piece. I had this discussion with my A&P, I ordered the official part number and needed a bolt not showing in the parts diagram, my A&P just shook his head. That’s what we have with owing an aircraft that’s this old.

    The parts catalog really does show it correctly. Figure 12, items 10 and 12 in the TriPacer parts manual, and Figure 11 items 10 and 12 in the PA-20 parts manual.
