    Default Nose strut bearings

    Regarding the PA 22 nose strut bearing. I bought a project and am rebuilding the nose strut. There are 2 nose strut bearings and I noticed there are 2 different P/N. Is there a reason for the 2 different part numbers and how can I tell them apart?

    The parts manual and this thread should help you.

    Are you looking at the upper bearing or both the upper and lower bearings, If you are looking at just the upper bearing, you are correct in that there are two bearings called out. The first is an old bearing P/N 452-333 which was not a sealed bearing and could be disassembled for servicing. The second P/N 452-419 is called out in the parts manual is a sealed bearing and can be used to terminate AD 64-05-04. Check out that AD in the Maintenance Data Depot on the Clubs web site.

    Thanks for the response. After going through all of the parts (2 pick up loads) I found the upper bearing. It is in good shape. I used a needle tip on the grease gun to bolster the lubrication. The nose strut assembly was completed and all works well.
