      Attached below is the 337 for my hydraulic brakes. Just in case anyone else can use it.
      I'm sure that we have a place to keep all of the 337's together. Can someone tell me if this belongs there and, if so, how to put my documents there?

        I think the idea of the "Reference Documents" forum is to provide a home for such documents that doesn't require addition workload for website editors. That's where I would put them in a new thread.

          Amazingly, after a short flight recently, I discovered corrosion on my landing gear. I'm embarrassed to admit that this somehow escaped my notice during the restoration.
          Anyway, I found a serviceable LG from a '39 bird (it was covered in blue-painted cotton, if anyone wants a sample of the fabric).
          I sandblasted and painted the new LG and swapped them out this past Saturday.
          Fortunately I didn't have to open the hydraulic line for the brake.
          And I was able to de-mount and reuse the bungees.

            I've mentioned this before, but here are a few more pictures of my bungee de-mounting tool. I actually de-mounted and mounted both bungees on the pilot side twice, this time. After I had remounted the bungees with the new LG, my IA didn't like the way the bungees were sitting relative to each other. So we dismounted them and remounted the the way he liked. It was easy.
            It's worth noting that I use two different-sized bungees. 1 ea 9010HD and 1 ea 11104. The 11104 is much stiffer than the 9010HD. But each can be stretched by one man. I've always had a second person to help push the bungees in place while I hold the lever.

            The process starts by tying the steel link to the bungee with strong cord (not zip ties). Then pin the link into the lever.
            The far end of the lever is short enough to clear the seat back. But once I get past the seat back, I add a cheater bar to get more leverage. The cheater bar is short enough to clear the headliner. The pull forces are greatest just above the seat back. Once the bar gets close to vertical, the force on the lever is low. I do this standing on the ground in the pilot side doorway.
