Message:

  Sometimes vibration can be caused by loose bearings at the ends of the slave 
struts.  One way to limit this is to tighten a nylon wire tie around the 
bearing between the strut and the clevis bracket on the aileron.  This limits 
vibration but is sufficiently compliant to allow free motion on the aileron 
and strut.
