    Shim /donut job complete! Incredible results !

    I just want to say that after having the nosewheel shim and donuts
    replaced I cannot believe the difference. If anyone here has old
    sagging donuts and can spend the $ to replace them you will be very
    happy afterwards. Had I known how much different things would be I
    would have done the job years ago. My landings are smooth and the
    embarrassing landing shimmy is gone ... and when I say shimmy it was a
    shimmy .
    An added benefit ... small issues were picked up in the process that
    were corrected .Chas

    Fwd: Shim /donut job complete! Incredible results !

    I couldn't agree more! I just had mine done 3 weeks ago, and I must say that the landings are soft but firm and its has to be better for the plane too,seeing how much softer it seems to land. I also had a bad , very bad shimmy on some landings, that what started all of the donut work for me. I figured while the plane was in Mike's care I might as well do all three landing gear at the same time that way it only cost me one trip up and back. In duing this work It makes me fill that much more confident in the planes landing gear due to the fact that you always hear bad stories about the Beech Craft landing gear being a costly repair, it definintly made me nervous about taking on the task.But in helping perform these changes I have learned more about the gear itself and how it works. Iam very glad that we did it it was good for me and the airplane.
