Will Bell cranks from a MSA work for a Derby?

Billy, my Derby Cross Shafts are 5/16". If the MSA bell cranks will fit that size cross shaft, they should work.

I have seen Derbys outfitted with Emmons bell cranks to get more adjustability. I think many steels use this size cross shaft. Emmons, GFI, Fessy, Magnum come to mind.

For what it's worth, the cross shafts on my (1976) MSA are 3/8".

The Bell Cranks on a Sierra use a 5/16 hole. I think the Olympics use a 0.125 Dia Pull Rod. I have some with holes & even a few with slots.
