Default What os so special about the LP24693C296 Screw

Hello,

The LP24693C296 screw is a SS countersunk screw that is used to capture the main wheel pants into the wheel axles. Those little screws have a slot cut into the threads and some sort of blueish green material in that slot. On my plans they are shown on page 48-7. For a picture of the screw please visit Vans Store and enter the part number

Vans charges almost $ 4.00 per screw. Technically an MS24693C-296 will fit, I am guessing that is the screw they use and then cut and fill that slot.

What is so special about that screw ad the slot. Is this screw re-usable?

Can I use a MS24693-296 with a type of Loctite? I also have the Berringer wheel and brake package with custom axle extenders from a Vans Airforce advertiser. Does this make a difference.

I have asked Vans via their store webs site and have not yet received a reponse.

Think of it as a male version of the nylock nut.

Interesting..... They must think that this is important enough to use.

As others have said, this is the male version of a nylock nut, and the same rules apply: they can be re-used a few times, but when they can be turned too easily they should be replaced.

In addition to Bobís comment, should be part of pre flight, they do come loose. I check em when I check air pressure when preflighting. And although checking tire pressure is a PIA with stock tubes, i use a measurement from the floor to the center of that screw: (6 1/8 - 6 1/4Ē 50-55 psi on my GY II)

+1

I was using a regular screw during testing to avoid wearing them out and forgot to put the correct ones in after I was done with all the pant work. Landed one day with noise and the screw had backed out and created a small F/G repair job for me.

From experience, those screws WILL back out without some means of creating resistance.

After the Nylok wears off from multiple removals, blue loctite will work until you want to replace with fresh screws. I replace with new at condition inspection.
