What are you all using for your Oleo fluid,I am currently enjoying a work in progress Chief I aquired a few months ago,I have a total of 1 hour flying time(circling the airport to seat the rings) and would like to service the oleo struts before I take flight again.
I use motorcycle fork oil, it comes in different weights. I use a light weight for standard (hard surface) use. It also has anti corrosion properties and anti-foam agents. The mil-spec 5606 hydraulic oil is a bit thin for my usage. I belive the original oil was called Teleo oil, its listed in the service manual. Paul Agaliotis
Geez! I've always used hydraulic fluid. That's what they (used to) come filled with from SAR. I would think the fluid shouldn't be too thick. Does anybody have the original specs for Teleo oil that was used from the factory?
