    I have never seen the shaft unscrew before. I think I would quiz Univair on that failure.

    Will do and will let you know their answer. Nearly rang them yesterday. Got a couple of second hand ones here in NZ to look at, so not all bad.

    Univair replied very quickly.

    "I am sorry to hear that your hydrasorb fell apart while replacing your bungys. I am uncertain as to what caused your hydrasorb to fall apart. Univair FAA/PMA approved hydrasorbs are consumable parts and have to be replaced if they are worn out. Unfortunately, Univair has nothing published for refurbishing our FAA/PMA approved hydrasorbs."

    First second hand one was off a very old cub. Hopefully the second one will pan out.

    I would argue the fact, that while the hydrosorb may be a wearable part the issue you have is an outright failure. If I were univair I would be interested in what actually caused the failure. The piston shouldn't just unscrew from the rod like that. Maybe a phone call and further explanation is in order.

    I agree, I know one of their engineers and am going to bring this up with him.

    Thanks. I'll follow up too with some more pictures and try and get an more reasoned response. Will try another email before using the phone. Still waiting to see which way we go. Second hand or new.

    Default Bungee Installation/tool

    Steve I know you have talked about bungees a million times, but i have just one question. How do i get to "borrow" the tool from the SWP club. I have done bungees before but its been so long and, two hangers, all of my info has "departed the pattern" so to speak. Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Contact the Club https://www.shortwingpiperclub.org/ I have been known to loan my tool out to donating members. Infact it is on it's way to Memphis.
