Bungee – further checks

So … the ongoing checks of my bungee that slipped off …

It turns out that, having sent the whole leg back to the factory, they have checked against a brand new bungee rubber … and ..

The effect of getting soaked in baby oil is that the rubbers have expanded … each strand is now fatter and longer !

The net effect is it simply had room to move …

I’m now going to condemn the other main gear bungee and work out a design to effectively seal the bungee from any moisture ingress but also allow movement

I will also do the same on the tailwheel bungee
