Main Gear Design Change?


Recommended Posts



I read a reference in the Central States Association newsletter to a RAF design change on the Long EZ main gear attachment. If you build the main gear according to plans, there will be extra space on both ends of the LMGA tube that fits between the aluminum brackets that are mounted on the fuselage sides. There is about 1/4 to 3/8 inch space between the brackets and where the big fiberglass layups begin. My understanding is that this space should be filled with something to minimize the possibility that the gear strut could move fore and aft in the attachment. I guess in new construction you would fill this space with washers. For those already flying, so you do not have to remove the gear from the airplane, people are filling this area with flox.


Do any of you know anything about this?
