Failure to follow maintenance instructions may result in serious injury or death of
crewmembers and/or serious damage to the helicopter. If injury occurs, seek medical aid.
To provide enough thread engagement to maintain safe flight, the distance between center
of rod end and end of servocylinder piston must not exceed 3.06 INCHES.
To prevent breakdown of cylinder piston rings, rotation of piston is limited to 90 degrees during rigging
and installation. Adjustments are made by turning rod end, not piston.
