    These brass fittings are used on my new X Craft and I need to get some more. The ring screws onto the end of the push-rod and the bolt goes through the ring and control arm. The nut secures the bolt.

    As these are on a British built model, I suspect they are BA (British Association) threads. Not that it matters too much.

    Does anyone have any ideas where I could get something similar?

    OD of ring is .15" Overall length is .425" OD of shaft is .075"

    In all fairness I dont know if they are still available,I bought them ten years ago,the price is only a rough guide,still you do get double value because the other end of the screew is what is used for the anteni wire to run through on the mast, if I remember correctly.
