  • Shinn Brake Adjusters

    At this time I am waiting on my DER to provide the FAA form to install hydraulic brakes on my TCraft. For right now I need to rely on the Shinn Brakes and purchased the nuts and pincer spring thingies from Skybound The adjustment nuts I have don not have the pincer springs. How are these pincers anchored after adjustment? I saw cotter keys on the skybound diagram but not certain how the spring thingies are satisfied off with the cotter keys? I paid a lot./ must be made of unobtanium/ Thank you all for your guidance

    Do a search for Rob Lee's brake adjustment, that may help, if not, it sure is good reading, for those of us with shinn brakes anyway

      Put the wire locking spring through the eye of the cotter pin, put the cotter pin in the hole in the back plate, and open the split pins on the inside of the plate.

                I notice that a number of my older friends (old like me) associate a song or song title to current activities also they/I use snippets from old lyrics in sentences.

                Sunday after Bible class the teacher said this was the last psalm we would look at and my mind popped back to 1972 and Edward Bear's "the last song".

                Must be an age thing because I see and experience it happening over and over. I just hope that doesn't mean the I am starting to live in the past!

                  I wouldn't sweat it Dave. They say the strongest stimulant for memories is smell followed by music. Sure glad there are no songs about dirty diapers! ;-)
