Landing gear oleo pistons
« on: April 15, 2012, 11:20:23 AM »
I'm interested in learning what others have done regarding repair/replacement of the oleo pistons.  Which is it more cost effective; to have them ground and re-chromed or just have new ones made?  If you've made new ones, what material did you use?  Did you have work done at a hydraulic shop or a hard chroming shop?

Is there anyway I could get the drawing as well.  I'm still trying to decide if iím going to get the chrome redone or not?
