    Comp Yak 2.6 Carbon Fiber Gear Leg Loose

    Just started working on a Comp Arf 2.6 Yak and noticed that one of the gears legs was loose. The bolt is tight inside the fuselage. I've read that you can use tape to tighten it up but I would like to do a more permanent fix.
    I was thinking about trying some CA or epoxy with microballons and putting it inside the fiberglass sleeve and then sanding as necessary. Also I was wondering if I could put epoxy or CA on the carbon fiber gear leg and then sand it down as necessary?



    Thanks,
    Larry

    RE: Comp Yak 2.6 Carbon Fiber Gear Leg Loose

    I would abrade the gear leg with 220 grit, clean with acetone. Wet out some 2 oz cloth with epoxy resin and wrap it around the leg a couple times. Cure in an oven at 150 degrees. You will need to sand the dia down a bit to get a snug fit.
