    [musketeermail] AEC Landing Gear Cushions

    Well this has moved me to the 'buy' side of the fence. I am ready to hit the order button to get some donuts coming my way (I figure the originals have lasted 30+ years, I am probably not going to need another set in my lifetime so I'd better get them now before they go up in price).

    Is there anything I need from AEC other than 3x sets of part number 169-380003-7 (donuts) and 4 of the NAS 1669-6L7 (Jo-Bolts) for my '77 Sundowner M-1891?

    Thanks,

    I have heard from another source that AEC is entertaining offers from the
    resellers, like the one that bought a lot of 'legacy parts' from Beech.
    Their intent is to pay AEC something less than the AEC retail for them, in
    exchange for buying them all, then re-marketing them at maybe 90% to 95% of
    Beech list. This is the stock in trade for these companies. It works for
    them, because they have no engineering, approval, and manufacturing overhead
    tied up in them. Just whatever their bid is on the parts. They can afford
    to wait for their payback, knowing that as the Beech price rises, their
    "discount price" will also automatically rise. And once one of them does
    this, how eager do you suppose AEC will be to rush out and run off another
    batch, to get the price back down, after their current experience? Yeah,
    that's what I thought too.

    AEC is undoubtedly considering this, in light of the money they have tied up
    in the current parts lot, coupled with the painfully slow sales rate
    (despite our earlier statements about latent demand due to the common need
    coupled with the high RAPID prices). And I don't blame them a bit.
