    So Eddie's STC allows you to mix components from Cleveland & Airframes Alaska then?

    Not sure, I know it covers both. Might be a good question for him.

    I did talk with Airframes Alaska yesterday about the TSO/PMA on the their wheels, they said they are direct replacement when the Cleveland wheels were installed under the Cleveland 199-71 kit but not if they were installed as just the Cleveland 40-60A. It is a gray area in their opinion and is up the mechanic installing them to make the determination.

    Eddie replied to my question: "The STC SA02483AK approves the installation of the wheel & brake kit, it does not address the mixing of parts."

    So, just looking through your 337... That is an interesting PA-22.

    If Iím reading it right the airplane was converted to PA-16 control system and landing gear... does it have hydrasorbs or does it have bungee cords only.?? Curious if you have double puck brakes or single puck also...

    The hydrasorbs are gone, just bungees like a Clipper. Calipers are two piston Cleveland 30-60Aís. I have decided to remove the Cleveland system and go with Trimmerís STC to install ABI 199-71 kit. Landing axles are 1 1/4.
