Q: What are the most common charge back items?
A: Cylinder bearings are often found to be worn beyond limits. Beech allows only .004” of wear in the bearings. There are two bearings per cylinder, internal and lower, with the lower bearing exhibiting most of the wear. These bearings are made from manganese bronze, half hard temper, fastened inside the steel barrel by silver solder welding. They become egg shaped from landing forces when the extended strut is driven back. Trace Aviation’s in-house process repair can repair the bearings and save the barrel. Also, actuator nuts that fail end play checks, cracked aluminum torque knees, and cracked old-style welded type nose gear forks are commonly found.
