The Replacement Cyclic Friction Assembly is a direct replacement for the original knob and shaft assembly used to tighten the cyclic friction. The replacement part removes the typical wear items from the original configuration, including the barrel nuts and threaded shaft. Friction is achieved with a cam-lever action, which can provide more friction than the original configuration, and is easier to use.

The installation procedure is similar to the original part, and minimum friction is set as per the maintenance manual. Installation time is approx. 10 minutes.
