(click to enlarge)

The servo saver is partially preassembled from the factory and requires only a few steps to finish.
If you need to assemble the parts yourself, perform the following steps:
1. Place the servo saver spring on the steering post.
2. Place the lower servo saver arm on the steering post.
3. Place the upper servo saver arm on the steering post on top of the lower arm. Note that the upper and lower arms should interlock at a 90-degree angle. Check the illustration for proper orientation.
4. Press the servo saver arm down and secure the servo saver with a #309414 (C 4) clip. The clip snaps into a groove on the steering post.

Assemble the steering rods by threading ball joints onto the ends of the spring steel turnbuckle.
Note: The turnbuckle has a CCW thread on the long end and a CW thread on the short end.
Also note that the ball-joints should be 180-degrees to each other. Adjust the steering rods to the proper lengths as shown.

1. Choose the proper servo horn to fit your servo. See the parts list above to match your servo manufacturer to the proper servo horn.
2. Thread a #302650 ball end into the servo horn. Note that the thread will extend through the servo horn, but will not affect operation. If desired, you can file off the exposed threads.
3. Snap the other servo link's other ball joint onto the servo horn ball end.
