Default RE: aircraft wheel brakes

I have a lot of experiences from O-ring brakes. If manufcatured with right tolerances the performance is so good that you will get flat tires!!
Use the O-ring manufactures data tabel to get the right measurements. Make sure the surface where the O-ring will be busy is very smoth. After turning the hub (slot where O-ring will be busy) use fine grid and after that polish the surface with some "polishing rubbing blend". I recomend the tolerances from the O-ring to the slot in the wheel hub to be -2 to -3 /10 mm.
Lubricate the O-ring whit some cristaline stuff.
