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. Peter -----Original Message----- From: Paul B. Stambaugh [SMTP:pstambau at yahoo.com] Sent: Monday, May 27, 2002 10:12 PM To: Dr. Guenther Eichhorn Subject: [Acro] Pitts Bungees - What size? 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 series 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. ===== Paul Stambaugh - IAC Chapter 88 Pitts S1-S N34RM "Psycho Therapy" SkyTours Aerobatics - The Ultimate Aerobatic Experience www.skytoursaerobatics.8m.com Ann Arbor, MI & Toledo, OH Phone: Days, Office (810)-986-0389, Evenings (419) 269-0626 Cell: 248-705-8495 __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
