    Well, Jon - that's on the list of things to prove!



    BUT - the 'teeth rattling' landing and take-off on grass that we experienced at

    Cavanaugh Bay, ID is the #1 reason I ordered the donuts ASAP after we got home!



    YEOW!



    p.s. - sorry I didn't cut all the old messages off the last post - DUH!

    New Donuts

    In looking for my new Mouse I test flew a 63 A23 with original donuts
    and a 66 A23-24 that got its gear rebuilt with all new donuts times
    three two years ago - there was no comparison. The old one "banged"
    onto the runway every time - the "new" donuts "boinged" onto the runway
    - firmly but smoothly. We were landing about 250# under gross -
    probably about 2300.

    How much does it cost to have these new donuts installed? It might be a great

    present to give my wife for X-mas.

    Nine hours of labor - $644.00

    Thre Sets of 8 Donuts - $1,926.45 (from RAPID, before the new guys came thru.)

    New Centering Cable - $689.95 (YIKES! Also from RAPID)

    Four Jo-Bolts NAS1669-6L7 - $223.54

    Misc. Freight - $26.28

    Total - $3,498.41



    Two Stands to support plane, and two jack pads - Stan my A&P (IA) built and

    bought himself, when we did the Front Spar Support Bracket repair the year before.



    Stan - priceless!



    Ride - like a Caddie!

    New Donuts

    Average costs should now be closer to one-half of what it cost Bill H. A
    new centering cable isn't normally needed during donut replacement; and if
    the cable itself is frayed, one can usually be field-fabricated by
    transferring most of the hardware to a new fabricated cable.

    The donuts and standard Jo-bolts are now roughly half price from AEC,
    compared to what Bill had to pay. With the instructions and video BAC hopes
    to produce, a mechanic should not face an extended project with time
    over-runs. For example, an owner could probably handle the pre-compression
    routine, and take the compressed donuts to the shop when the shop is ready
    to start work. Of course, these are airplanes, with a lot of age on them.
    It is always possible to run across something else during any project, just
    like during any Annual.
