Purchase nose castor, repair XL-2 part

Post by godryu »

Hello

We operate 5 XL-2s in Korea.
Discovery Aviation is out of contact these days, so we can't get the parts.

Is there any way we can get a nose castor?
Or does anyone know where to check/repair?

It's too hard to get a part.

Good afternoon,

I see that you made parts for the liberty nose castor assembly and mine has failed the shimmy dampener test. I need a Nose undercarriage Friction Base P/N 135A-40-555. I am curious if you have it and how much it costs. I appreciate your help.

I tried sending a PM but it shows it’s in my outbox and not in my sent messages so I’m hoping xl2oemparts will see this.

That means they haven't read it, once they read it will show in your sent box.

I was given an email through a Private Message to try to reach xl2oemparts about buying a friction base. Has anyone had any success reaching this person? It appears they still have not read my PM on here and they have not responded to my emails after two attempts.
