C-172E elevator torque tube attach points

Anyone have any information about elevator torque tube attach points and whether removal and reriveting is necessary when a slight amount of play is detected?

Todd,

The elevator pushtube is very short, and serves only to connect the bottom of the control column (below the pivot point) to the forward elevator bellcrank below the cabin floor under the front seats. The elevator control connections between the forward elevator bellcrank and the rear elevator bellcrank at the elevator are the upper and lower elevator cables.

If the play you describe is between the control wheel and the elevator, have you checked the cables for the proper tension?

if you have found this yourself, and there is movement, then get it fixed, 'cause if it comes loose you ain't gonna be happy.

Todd, Gday, I believe you're talking about where both elevators attatch to the bellcrank. If you detect play between both elevators, ie. they move independently of each other then yes I would rectify the problem.
