Default RE: aircraft wheel brakes

Make sure you get the surface finish right in the 0-ring grove or they'll be leakin' in no time.

I like the BVM idea as there is no axial load on the wheel hubs. I have a set of Behotec gear and although the brakes work very well they do push sideways (axial) on the wheels and do not completely free up right away.
