Woodie, I’m not going to have time to research this for you today. Have you
read through the list of Service Communiqués that can be downloaded from the
BAC Website, under Technical?

Subject: [musketeermail] Rudder Pedal Torque Tube Bushings

My plane, 1965 A23, just went through annual and the mechanic provided
me with a list of items that need to be fixed to finalize the annual.
One of them was that "...the pilot's left rudder pedal torque tube
bushing missing..." Within the parts manual it does not display a
bushing/washer for the outside brackets on the torque tubes, just on
the inside (4 total). Indeed, the repair manual makes note of that
the outside should not have the nylon bushings installed because of
possible complications due to friction heat. I inspected another A23
on my field that is undergoing rebuild and noted that it has the
washer/bushings installed on both outer ends of the torque tube.
Evidently, the mechanic who did the annual is used to seeing them like
this. Before I go back and dispute this, can someone give me some
guidance on this. Is there a modification out there that I am
unfamiliar with that requires the installation of the washer/bushings
on the outer ends?
