I used the Magnaflux Spot Check. It was $80-90 from Zoro, free shipping, no tax. They said a week or two for shipping, but it came in 4 days from Texas to Kansas, UPS.

I?m not going to bother with looking for racks, just install the fix. If you find cracks the solution is the fix, so what?s the point in inspecting if you just put in the mod?

Oops, sorry, I meant that post to be on the HS spar crack mod thread. Senior moment, I guess!

So sorry for some mis-information reference the clips for the turnbuckles. These clips are not in the SB18-02-02 parts. It was actually 2 cotter pins with also have an MS##### similar to the clips.

Bottom line....no clips so if you anticipate re-adjusting the turnbuckles order additional clips.

I had ordered the SB package earlier and picked it up today. Two cotter pins and nso cable clips. Vans is out of these clips and so they’re now on ‘back order’. Could be a long wait so I was advised to locate clips from another vendor.

On another SB note, is there something special about the aviation penetration dye that is lacking in more common penetration dye kits available at the auto parts store? What are people using and where have they purchased it?

Thanks for info.

Post Jane is having major surgery SB 18-02-02 the elevator.

Jane is very fortunate in that she is rich with friends that want to help her out. This time it was major surgery SB 18-02-02 the elevator.
Dave, friend and A&P mechanic, came over with his specially built table just for the RV-12 fleet.
His table is already reserved for use for another RV-12 at Wings Field.
Certainly made the job a bit easier, just slide it under adjust height to match and we were all set.

Service Bulletin 18-02-02 to address any potential cracking in the horizontal stabilator front spar.
Did not find any cracking on Jane, however, performed the SB as a prevention measure.

Had to hold for 24 hrs due to finding one of the bearings would slip out of the flange with little pressure.
Put Loctite on it and checked the following day and we were good to go for Elevator installation.
