    P/N 40721-00 Stabilizer Adjust Cable Rubbing Block

    Can anyone tell me what this block (stabilizer trim cable circuit) is made of? Univair asks $25.00 for one. If it is just a wooden or rubber block it must be possible to make one, or?? Does anyone have a photo of one??

    I would probably make this out of HDPE and make it as small and light as possible.

    Bent, I might still have a sheet of phenolic at the hanger. If you want I will check tomorrow and I can send you a piece big enough to make the part.

    I make 'em out of 1/4" UHMWPE (ultra high molecular weight poly ethylene)

    ...but I'm gonna start making them out of HDPE (high density polyethylene) to save a bit of weight.

    ...just like Behindprops does .

    Steve, thank you for your kind offer. However it would be quite a bit of postage... I think I'll try some of the UHMWPE.

    Thanks for all the prompt and very useful info.
