The trim cable in my L-4 has a broken thread that is now unwinding!
1. Can a replacement “endless” trim cable be fitted to the aircraft with the fabric still on the aircraft?
2. Does anybody have photos of the fairleads and trim assembly in their airframe before the fabric was fitted, so that I can see what I where I am going to navigate the cable between.
3. Is the Univair “endless” trim cable any good?
4. Is there a UK name and supplier for the 2 “Piper pins” (Pn 81761-3) that lock the master trim pulley in place? – items 22 and 23 on figure 18 in the Piper parts catalogue.
