Perhaps they have more leverage in the wider fuse B/A ? In the S/T you only
have an arm of perhaps 6 inches but the arm must be double that in the B/A.

Why not just check with Aviat and avoid any confusion.

	I am stuck on this one. I would like to change the
	bungees since I have the engine off and I am seeing
	something in Aircraft Spruce that is puzzling me.

	Page 214 - "MIll Fresh Shock Rings"
	 1280-HD (3/4 * 8) 950# need 4 - These are for the S-2

	1380 (13/16 * 8) 1160# need 4 - These are for the S1,
	S1-C, S1-S

	My question is why are they using the lighter bungees
	on the heavier aircraft and can I put the S-2
	(lighter) ones on my S-1? The dampening is VERY tight
	on landings.
