    Denny-

    First of all do not buy anything but newly minted landing gear
    biscuits. Some "new" ones are out there but they are typically so old
    (though never installed) that they are at worst "dry rotted'' and at
    best "hard as a rock!" Buy brand new, fresh parts from Aviation
    Engineering Consultants (/www.aec-inc.com).

    Second, plan to spend about $500 per landing gear if you don't need
    anything unusual after the landing gear is taken apart. Worn parts
    you find will obviously just add to the cost, though typically there
    isn't much that you will find that has gone bad.

    Good luck,
    Chris

    Landing Gear Donuts

    Chris..



    I certainly hope you are not posting this in reference to my message about
    my landing gear donuts for sale on ebay.. Mine are NOT old, dry rotted hard
    as a rock donuts like you said in your message, they are only a few years
    old and have been stored in my climate controlled house, they are no more
    "rotted" than a pair of rubber shoes you would have in your closet for a few
    years.. If somebody had some that were 20 or 30 years old that would be a
    different story but that's not the case with the ones I am selling. Your
    message makes it sound like they only have a shelf life of zero as they must
    be "newly minted" and "fresh". geez.. A little common sense prevails here,
    it's a piece of hard rubber and isn't going to decay in a short period of
    time..

    Landing Gear Donuts

    I agree, my doughnuts were not installed for 2 years and they were pliable as the day I bought them. Mike R. (BAC) may chime in on this but I am pretty sure he said in one of the threads that the rubber on new doughnuts had quit a shelf life. Randy if you are a BAC member you may what to send Mike a email.
