Vibration

Vibration

<HTML>Have recently noticed nose gear/wheel  vibration on take-off at about 50-55mph.
Have not noticed the same on landing or any shimmy when landing. Any thoughts
?</HTML>

Re: Vibration

<HTML>bet its time   for a new shimmey damper     and also check the steering rods .

on our  172M (1976)       the steering rods are spring loaded and both were shot .
with the springs collapsed the rods had about an inch play before the
nose wheel would respond to inputs from the rudder pedals .so if you have
a couple thousand hours on it  I bet thats your problem .
No more vibration .</HTML>

Re: Vibration

<HTML>Had the same trouble on my B model. Cured it by rebuilding the shimmy damper and shimming up the Scissors so there was no play.</HTML>
