      Hello again JohnB,
       
      Yes, I will certainly try to get a stainless 18mm tube instead of the alloy tube I had at home. The easiest way is not always the best one.
       I appreciate your advice and the opportunity which this Privateer Yahoogroup gave me to get it!
       
      Cheers
      Arne

      Hi Arne
      I saw the photo- I think that if you put plastic washers both ends of the tube to insulate the nut and bolthead that should be better,but there will still be a problem next to the centre plate.

      Stainless tube would be better if you can find it

      Cheers
      JohnB

      > Thank you for your reply and wish for good luck! I am sure I need it. I forgot to mention that the bolt is made of stainless steel. I am aware of the problem with corrosion and that alloy and stainless steel are not the best of friends. That why I put the plastic tube between them and also because I wanted the 12mm bolt to fit tighter. Is that of any use? I am far from an expert of steel! If I can I choose wood which I am more used to.

      > Caution - the alu. tube at the CB pivot may corrode rapidly due to electroytic action against the bolt- better to use a bit of stainless steel, preferably 316 grade.

In the cabin I found damages aft of the cb-case, where you can see rotten ply and other not so pleasant things to deal with. I have included a photo of a cut in the upper part of the cb case close to the pivot position. I guess it was opened to assist when he took out the cb, which might have got jammed?? I have now refitted the cb and found the hole for the pivot. It now consists of a 18mm alloy tube which fits the hole completely. The tube is lined with a plastic tube and into that goes a 12mm bolt. It seems to work so far.
