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.

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.

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.

progress on that front. While I heard a couple of responses to my
previous request, I have not yet received any samples from anyone.
