Alignment holes and pins were used to lock each bellcrank into position during rigging.

Just to reiterate, there were no holes and alignment pins in the early RV-6 plans.

That procedure came later.

Default Neutral Aileron Bellcrank

A simple explanation which worked for me is that you make your own #40 hole in the bellcrank and the angle above it to pin it in neutral position. You know neutral bell crank because the plans show you when in neutral, the measurement from the bearing hole in the bell crank ( that goes to the control stick) is 1 3/16 inches from the vertical surface of the mounting angle. All your bearing adjustments happen after you start with the neutral bell crank, pinned with a 6 inch #40 drill bit after you drill it through both pieces. Then you can always have a neutral position to use forever and ever and ever
