Replacing undercarriage suspension bands

Postby JimCrawford » Sat Apr 13, 2019 9:37 pm

Once again tapping into the Nipper site knowledge base!

I have the aircraft up on trestles as it makes it more stable for trial fits of the engine as I replace the Peacock style mags with a Leburg electronic set up. Consequently the undercarriage legs are 'dangling' so I shall take the opportunity of easy access to replace the tired suspension bands with a new set.
My question is; are the bands under significant tension with the wheels off the ground or can I remove and replace them by hand without having them fly off when I remove the securing bolts? Forewarned is forearmed!

Regards

Jim
