HI all, looking for a supplier of, I think the nose strut is Skymaster, a 6mm pin as in my pic.
Thanks Rcpete

Check with BVM. They have a pin upgrade for the nose gear of the Skymaster L-39. Not sure of the size though.

RE: Wanted, nose pin

I had the same pin bend rather than break on mine. What I did was to buy some 6mm drill stock at a local supplier. I then cut it and milled a groove for the e-clip with a dremel and a cut-off wheel. Problem solved! That was a cheap and easy solution

There was a similar thread some time ago, there was a few good links to alternative suppliers

Funny that,
I've just made some 7mm pins for someone who has gone through same thing!a:eek:

Since increasing the diameter, there has been no more problems.

Obviously you have to open up the bush hole or remake it.

BVM has good ones. Every time i had them made the metal use was to soft and they bent even on good landings. The ones i got from BVM are perfect
