CA35-825110 $Call to Inquire
The Cygnet Aerospace Nose Gear Brace is aluminum, machined from billet. The Beech part is a magnesium casting inherently susceptible to corrosion. To keep moisture out the lightening holes have been eliminated from the Cygnet brace. The part is finished using Cygnet's proprietary powder coating process; the same process used on our Dual Controls and Control Wheels.
New bronze bushings have oversize flanges which allow them to be fitted to your existing barrel, often eliminating the need for the shims used in the OEM part.
New internal pivot and shimmy damper bushings are installed in the new brace. These bushings are slightly undersize to allow for the cleanup of your existing mating bushings saving you the expense of replacing them with new parts.
This part is 4.5 pounds heavier than the OEM part, which can help many of the aircraft with aft C.G. problems.
Each Cygnet Nose Gear is engraved with part, lot, and serial number for complete traceability.
Note: This is not a "plug-and-play" type part. Beech manufactured 6,000+ aircraft with this nose gear. There are variations in tolerances for all these OEM parts. The barrel must be fitted to the bronze upper and lower bushings. The pivot and shimmy damper bushings require reaming or mating bushings to be machined for a slip fit. An experienced machine shop may perform these operations. Do not expect your mechanic to install this product at your tie down!

Problems with Old Gear
The inner wall of the brace typically corrodes just above the bronze bushing. This is seldom detected until the corrosion is so severe that it penetrates the casting. The bushings can also corrode and can seize.
