    donuts

    Hi there,
    Any news lately on the maingear donuts from the other company yet. I did a
    search and the last e-mail from the company was some time ago. I have the mains
    off so I thought I may as well replace them if they look bad.

    Thank,
    Ron Van Hoosen

    donuts

    Some bad news and some better news:

    1. The engineer I have been working with at AEC for more than two years, Paul Higgins, died very unexpectedly early this month of severe cancer, at age 51.

    2. I am now in contact with the President of AEC (also an engineer), and it looks like he will be my future collaborator on BAC parts projects.

    3. The first production-run donuts are being installed on an aircraft this coming Wednesday. Assuming no more surprises, they will go up on the AEC website for sale the following week.

    4. AEC is still working on the lock issues with the new handles. I have proposed a solution based on my new lock cylinders, in hopes of keeping things moving, but I don't yet know whether my new contact there will be interested. I will keep the groups posted.

    5. I still need some samples of shimmy dampers in order to make progress on that front. While I heard a couple of responses to my previous request, I have not yet received any samples from anyone.

    donuts

    --
    Sorry to hear about the death of the AEC Engineer but happy to here
    that the Donuts may soon be available. I am still a little unclear
    about how to determine that new donuts are needed. The measurement
    shown in the Maint Manual--is this with the weight of the plane on
    the main gear? I feel sure that i will need the new donuts but want
    to make sure. What is a sourse for the J-Bolts. I understand that
    the actual size needed may not be known until the main gear is
    removed but I have not found a sourse for these bolts. I plan on
    changing the donuts in Nov at Annual.

    donuts

    My last understanding with from them was that AEC planned to offer Jo-bolts at a reduced price, along with the donuts. I'll verify that again.

    The measurement is taken with the weight on the gear.

    donuts

    Just had mine replaced about 6 weeks ago. Mech said if the bolt parallel to the ground (can't remember the name of it) is more than half hidden by the strut, replace the donuts. He checked both, and they needed it. Biggest reason is the strut bushing gets "egged" out (oval shaped). He had to go through 5 salvage yeards to get a usable strut (other one was OK). Good news is used strut is mucho cheaper than Rapid - better news is my landings have improved 1000% - 17 out of 19 greasers with actual shock absorbtion!!!
