wing attachment backbone
« on: January 30, 2014, 09:37:08 PM »
Where the wing bolts secure the wing to the main structure I noticed that a couple of the holes are elongated slightly.Has anyone else run into this and what would be considered a proper fix? Any ideas would be welcome.Thanks Craig I'm not sure of the proper name for the main structure.

Are  the holes in question part of the wood wing or the steel "truss" center section in the cabin?
You can download the FAA pub. AC43.13 and probably find ways to fix either issue.  That is where I would start.

I'm talking about the steel truss. Two of the inner holes are slightlly elongated,perhaps from working of the bolts or rough handling in its past. Thanks I'll check out the recommended fix. Craig
