Hi all
We have had a failure of one of our main wheel hubs. Just as the AD specifies, there must have been a crack ( checked at annual but nothing found)
which has caused the edge of an inner wheel rim to break, possibly not helped by White Walthams less than smooth runways.
I believe I am looking for a Cleveland 600-6 hub but one that takes the old cable/mechanical drum with brake shoes.( I think many from Cessna 150 etc are for wheels with disc brakes)
Am following a couple od leads but if anybody has a wheel for sale, or,the inner wheel hub half, please message me.

Answer= move from WW.

I am constantly astounded at the number of apparently sensible people who put up with the dabacle of the runways at WW and the expense of hangarage therein.

Its almost walking distance from home
Most sociable club I know
Beer is good

Apart from that you are probably right
