Time to start working on the brakes. I took the temporary tires/tubes off today and started prepping for the new parts.

new parts

I used a space heater to heat up the wheels so I could get the old wheel bearing races out and new ones installed. I’m installing new FAA/PMA Timkin races P/N 13889 and bearings P/N

Using a Space heater to heat up the wheel halves.

I cleaned, inspected and painted the wheel halves. I need to let them dry before I reassemble.

I now have the opportunity to install the Cleveland brakes that I inspected and cleaned about a year ago.

Cleaned the bore, I now need to install new O-Rings.

This is what the gear leg looked like when I started.

Really looking forward to adding all these pretty new parts!

New rotors!
