Long Ez nose wheel strut spring

Recommended Posts

I built my own hand crank nose lift 22 years ago from the plans.


I got the springs and the gears from McMaster-Carr. The part numbers are listed in the manual.


You may have compressed the spring but I doupt it. There were a couple of rubber o rings on each end of the spring that may have rotted away.


I don't understand what you mean by "Mine has sagged" Is the strut bent or is the nose of the plane lower?

thanks for the replys .


the nose spring is a bit softer than it used to be an sits a bit lower ( the front of the aircraft , so the nose wheel moves a little further backas the nose wheel strut compress )


I don't remember seeing any rubber when I pulled it apart ?
