Because Owning And Flying Your Beechcraft Can Be Done Safely AND For Less Money!
  Step by Step V-Tail Ruddervator Replacement


How are your Ruddervator Bearings doing? I'm no V-tail owner but from what I've heard and read the bearings in your ruddervators have some critical slop tolerances.



So if your Ruddervator bearings are tired, you and your IA/A&P might appreciate this step by step Power Point presentation on changing them out. IMHO, this presentation is an excellent How-To guide for this project.

Big Tip Follows: These same bearings are reported to be the same for the straight tail Bonanzas.



Big thanks to Beech Listers John F. who is the star of the show in the replacement pictures and to Tom H. who had the file and sent it to me!

"I sent a pair to Buddy Miller @ TrimAire in Mexia TX last year and he did an excellent job, three color paint to match, was around $1200. Buddy is an old friend and has done this stuff since Columbus landed."
