Vc gear fixed! by Phoenix
I would like to thank everyone who made suggestions regarding the difficulty in both raising and lowering the gear on my Ventus C. Turns out the culprit was the castle nut on the axel was way too tight. I loosened it to only hand tight and installed a new pip pin (sp?) Works like it was designed to...

Pawnee air-oil bear strut pressure by Larry Ruggiero
Yes I know they’re problematic. Just returned our PA 25-235 from its annual, where one of ours was rebuilt (locked solid) and both serviced. Like I assume many of yours are, our Pawnee has no hopper and will never see gross weight again. So should the air side of the struts still be 575psi per...
