I pretty much only use AN hardware . For the tail wheel pivot bracket I am using the AN-3 bolts. Same as the tail wheel axle.

Just to get clarification which bolts are folks using and discussing here and which grade? There are AN bolts I think are 125ksi tensile strength (is that grade 5?) and then there are others from various sources, including grade 8 bolts that are around 160-170ksi that are stronger but more brittle (less tough) and more susceptible to hydrogen embrittlement.On Jan 11, 2023, at 9:17 AM, Sam Hoskins <sam.hoskins@...> wrote:Just to help beat a dead horse, I have the original 3/16" bolt. I have never bent one, but I do replace the bolt and sleeve every once in a while when they show signs of wear.
