Reconditioned Yokes
Author Last Post
Hey folks....a tip for the shafts in the yokes.  Mine had been creating some rust over the last dozen years since we moved to humid Houston.  I would clean it off with corrosion x and a pad..but it always came back.  I finally found a cure about 2 months ago.

I took some MAAS polish and cleaned all the tarnish off and any rust I could.  Just a rag and some elbow grease did the trick.  Then when no more tarnish would come off and the rag was clean, I used a bit more MAAS, my cordless drill and a buffer wheel to shine it up.  It came out pretty darn nice but I know if I leave it, it will tarnish/rust again. I applied a chemical I found called Everbrite Coating made for this kind of thing.  It's easy to do even while still mounted.  Follow the directions and put a painters cloth down in case you get drips.  I only had a couple of drips.  It still looks great and supposedly will last for years.

No affiliation at all with that company but very pleased with product.  The smallest amount is plenty.

Regards,
David

Bill,
It appears that my yokes are fine with the plastic coating cracking a bit. No need for photos.

Bill,
Can you forward me some pictures and asking price?
Thanks,
Andy
 
Andy, I have a pair of yokes from a 55’ if interested.

Ok I’ll look into that and take one off to see if cracks go all the way through.
 
Can't tell from the picture but those cracks are possibly just the plastic coating and not the yoke itself.

Many folks have had their yokes stripped and powder coated back to new looking condition.
 
The yokes on my 60’ 180 have cracks at the attachment to shaft area. Does anyone know of a shop that might recondition yokes?
Would like to keep original set but looking for alternatives also. Avion research seems overboard.
