More work on my rudder pedals

I just kept wondering how I was going to lubricate my rudder pedals. After some thought I drilled a couple of #40 holes in the tubing that the pedals hang from so I can put drops of oil in them.

I did the same on the back side of the foot pedal itself.

Not shown in the photo is another change I made to the assembly that I bought from Dave Thatcher. He used a rivet in the sleeve he used to hold the foot pedal in place. I drilled this hole clean through to the other side so I could hold the sleeve in place with a cotter pin. This way I could easily remove the sleeve if there was ever a need to without having to drill a rivet out.
