Thread: Nose Wheel Shimmy

    Nose Wheel Shimmy

    On Saturday, while landing on a very rough broken paved runway, I experienced some nose wheel shimmy until my speed was below 40 mph. My next landing on a smooth runway was fine.

    In BAC it mentions something about shims in the nose gear to eliminate excessive play in the nose wheel but it is not very clear exactly where the shims go and how hard it is to replace. Is there a need to replace the damper on the nose gear? Any comments from anyone that has had experience with this would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Don

    Nose Wheel Shimmy

    Don, I've had shimmy for a long time. Shims fix it then don't. Keep the nose light through roll out and you won't notice it. Tom Corcoran
