Re: Cabin Air Vent Removal

No. I didn't see anything in the manual. I happen to have another one in my spare parts and it does unscrew but how on earth do you get a hold of it to unscrew it. I tried smashing a rubber ring around it for grip. It's on there and I really don't want to damage it because the clip that fell off the...

Cabin Air Vent Removal

Who has the secret trick to remove the cabin vent by your knee so I can pop the clip back into the back of it and it will stay together properly.

Re: Tail Plane Attachment Lug(135A-30-615)

I too need these parts. I'm trying to do the research now but if I'm not allowed to overfly this inspection, my airplane is a yard ornament in 2.4 more hours. I've been in contact with Jason Russell, the president of Discovery, hoping these parts would come available in the coming weeks but I keep h...

Re: Neoprene Washer front nose gear

That’s great. I would take one of those myself. Did you make multiple and if so, how much would you sell one for?

Re: Nose Wheel Steering Friction Base Production

Gimpy, Thanks for that information. I follow completely what you're saying and it would be great if anyone takes a new nose lock pin and gets that data to share with the group. I know that the original supplier AND discovery have design data but only one of those two will communicate with us and tha...

Re: Nose Wheel Steering Friction Base Production

Gimpy, Thanks for the input. Unfortunately, I agree that the prices are ridiculous and that's why I'm trying to get multiple people on board to reduce the price. I know the parts are very simple but there are some things I don't know such as material and if they need heat treatment. For that, I'm re...

Re: Nose Wheel Steering Friction Base Production

Maybe you can see this photo. I'm not sure. Here is what happens and allows the shimmy. This is the lower friction base and as that square cut out wears against the square portion of the nose gear leg, it allows excess free play that we feel as a shimmy. I believe that if you let it continue, there ...

Re: Neoprene Washer front nose gear

I'll wait a couple weeks to try to make sure we are as inclusive as possible for the order to reduce everyones cost. Perhaps we should even start a ...
