My recently purchased 172G has a lot of play in the control yoke and it appears to be be result of a worn bushing where the shaft passes through the instrument panel. The copilot side is not very worn and doesn't have the play. I don't have a parts manual and don't know the part number. Could use any help available in locating a source for a new bushing
Thanks
Chuck

Call McFarlane Cessna Parts in Texas. 785-594-2741.

They have them. They used to be about $12.00 for a pair of halves. You will be shocked by the prices, but they have them.

Although they look easy to install, they are NOT. you need to go under the panel and remove the ONE screw that holds the yoke tube and pull it out.

Some one with a 3D scanner should set up a 3D Printing file as they would probably cost just a few pennies each.

i bought new yoke bushing from airpower inc. can't recall cost but it was cheaper than bushing. it is new style update one. no pair of halves bushing at all. none. It is the same as new cessna have. The hole is now size as shaft .75 or 3/4 inch.

it pain [censored] to install, you need to go under the panel and remove the ONE screw that holds the yoke tube and pull it out.

then remove panel cover , remove the 4 screw / 4 bolts (on back side)

installation is reverse. when you reinstall yoke shaft be sure to install bolt with head faceing up.

First time that I did that, I was amazed at what little holds the control tube.

The ones I had in my 210 were a much better design. Who ever designed that slip halves, system needs to go back to engineering school.

Thanks Bob and MX757 for your comments. I called McFarland and they say they Don't carry a Control Yoke Bushing. I talked with the AirPower parts guy and he was helpful in providing a part number 0513311-1 and said his source say part no longer available. MX757 could you possibly come up with a part number for piece you were able to use from the later model 172's. Airpower says if they had a part number they would check availability for me.

Thanks for all the help, I have ordered from Airpower and they are in stock there and the price is 25 dollars a half. A little pricey but will be happy to get them installed.
