Flap Lever Spring Installation

Post by 8272 » Fri Jun 26, 2020 1:32 pm

My flap lever spring on my 1946 Cessna 140 - SN 10753 recently broke. I was able to buy a replacement, but now it's a matter of installing it. Is it just as simple as removing the bolt that contains the mechanism, or is there something else I should know about before replacing the spring?

...can't put my hands on it right now, but fellow member David Owen contributed a nice article a while back RE replacing the spring so that worn attachments are mitigated. I'll keep searching...but, maybe someone else will recall and can retrieve. Mac
