Elevator Removal

  • Stinson 108-1. Tried to remove the elevator tonight. (Needs painting). My problem is that the elevator trim cable does not fit through the hole in the elevator. Can’t see a way to remove the turn buckle end to fit through the hole. 
  • any help appreciated

if I remember right, you can loosen the jam nut against the fork and unscrew it. Or the whole thing unscrew. It should pull through then. It's something like that anyway.

Thank you. I had loosened the lock nut but took some work unfreezing the whole unit. I am good now.
