    Hi,

    If you're hoisting from one side of the engine mount at a time, you'll be good not doing anything with the tail wheel. The main gear you're not lifting will pretty much keep the plane planted.

    So just finished helping with bungee change - whew!!! That is quite a job!
    It is the 2nd time I have had an opportunity to help with it. This time we used a different tool that I was not familiar with.
    The SWPC loaner tool was not available as they are all loaned out at present.
    Is it true that wag aero [or is it univair] will put the bungees on your hydrosorbs if you purchase cords from them?
    Do they charge for that service?
    What do your mechanics charge you for bungee change?
    I looked at the stance of my plane and decided they are just fine!

    Yes, Univair will install bungees on your hydrosorbs. I do not remember the charge.
