Can anyone tell me where I can get a complete set of seals for my main gear hydraulic cylinder? I have a leaking in the piston ring seal. This seal is not just an o-ring. It looks very unique?

I will keep you in the loop on the cylinders. As far as the race goes it's to early for me to say. I have a lot going on this year. I might have to pass. But don't count me out yet.

Hi Mike,

Have you tried the maintenance category on the main page.... it's new, crude, but has some good info.

Look at the oleo thread. Good start.... I got my flap cylinder rebuilt at a local hydro shop in north fort myers a few years ago. No Leaks to date.

Soon I will clean up that category.
