We have completed the repairs for our broken cabane wing attach eyebolt. Rather than install new or NOS eyebolts of unknown strength we (Kevin) built completely new cabanes with the wing attach bushings and the roll bars welded into place with straps over the bushings.
Attached pic is of the original design with 3/8" eyebolt installed. This is the right front attach point and we can see the surviving bolt is somewhat bent (forward??). Probably not far from its own low cycle fatigue failure!
I will post addt'l pics with the new cabane attach details and with old/new canes together.
Post a Followup
