Parts Wanted / Landing gear leaf spring
« on: May 13, 2014, 08:50:25 AM »
Hi guys,

after about 20 hours and many landings on a trouble-free landing gear, the right hand leaf spring broke while taxiing on a rough grass taxiway. Since I am converting to Burke Bell's O-ring oleo strut seal there will be no real need for that unique spring feature anymore. But in order to keep it all original as far as possible (If you read this, hi Dan!) I am eager to replace the broken part.
My question is now if anyone knows a source for those parts or has one for sale? I remember there was a pair for sale on ebay a while ago but I did not consider it necessary to put them on stock. Unfortunately...
I would appreciate any help I can get to let N25U shine again!  8)


Maintenance and Repair / Elevator stop
« on: June 17, 2013, 08:21:00 PM »
Hi Folks,

I got a little confused when I removed the floor carpet of my Cadet. Can anyone tell me what limits the elevator up movement? Is there any stop block or something like that? Maybe in the rear fuselage? I could not find anything in the manuals or parts catalogues. So far my elevator was stopped by a metal strip screwed to the floor, that held the carpet down near the steering assembly. I doubt that was the way it should be according to Al Mooney...
Talking about elevator travel. Is there any source to find out the max. elevator travel limit for up and down? Also for rudder and aileron?
Thanks for the help!!

Best regards across the pond,
