NOSE GEAR. Rubber Bumper Modification. Bumper Installation

nosegearrubberbumpermodificationbumperinstallation.jpg

I installed the replacement shock vertically. I opened the holes on the canard bulkhead located such that the actual rubber on the bumper would start at the level of the captivator. I inserted a couple of wide area washers as shims between the bulkhead and the spacer, on the top bolt, to ensure a flat support for the spacer against the uneven surface of the canard bulkhead. The bolts were inserted from the keel side to maximize separation from the strut.
