I C S Tool Loan Program.

Tool loan rules.

Bungee installation hints; additionally, if you are planning on keeping your Comanche you might consider purchasing a couple tools from Bogert Aviation. The reason, shipping charges for the loan program are no longer insignificant.

Checking gear retraction loads - See also this link.

Go / no-go gauges - This document collection is a creation of Maurice Taylor. It explains how to use and handle the gauges, and shows which gauge is used in which position; a good one to print and have available.

Thread gauges - Handling and using them properly.

Here is a part-numbered list of each tool required to perform the AD 77.13.21, part A per the SB-782B; if you want a set of your own this list of tools will make ordering easier for you. Contact me and I will forward the order to you which makes this easy for you. Approximately $550 will buy one of each; the thread gauges are the expensive ones [I found some on Ebay]. I like McMaster-Carr because their website is the best, but this stuff is surely available from other tool suppliers.

Pertaining to the photo above of the go / no-go and thread gauges; we have three plug gauge kits, but only two thread gauge sets of each size. One thread gauge set fits the 180 / 250 / 260 airframes; the other set fits the 260C / 400 / Twin airframes.
